BEF Surprises With $22,000 In Grants

In a scene repeated through the district, Danebo’s Angie Johnson reacts after being surprised with a grant from the Bethel Education Foundation’s Executive Director, Dawnja Johnson.

More than $22,000 has been handed out to Bethel educators, courtesy of the Bethel Education Foundation.

The BEF’s 10th annual grant award parade surprised 33 tearful, cheering and grateful teachers, including at least one at every Bethel school.

The BEF was formed by a group of active Bethel parents in 2009 and has since donated more than $230,000 in classroom grants to enhance students’ educational experience.

The 2019 grants covered a wide variety of requests such as graphic novels, weighted vests, gardening equipment, yearbook cameras, Ozobots, music programs, and cooking materials.
