Peyton Anderson "Teach to Inspire" Grants
The Peyton Anderson Foundation announced in April 2017 that it would be devoting $500,000 in for Bibb County educators. In the end, more than $530,000 went to a variety of projects across the District, all spearheaded by educators in our classrooms.
Here are highlights of the projects that have been completed so far:
Paige Welch, W.S. Hutchings College and Career Academy
"Coffee with a Cop"
This event sought to connect community members with law enforcement officers, several of whom sat on a panel to address questions and concerns. This event was sparked by conversations Welch - whose son is a law enforcement officer - had with her students about conflicts involving officers in other communities.
Rebecca Morgan, Rutland High School
With this project, Morgan's goal was to provide students throughout the school with a covered space where classes could meet outside. This metal structure has picnic tables with spaces to move them around and was officially opened in November 2017.

Brad Lord, Springdale Elementary School
DrumFIT seeks to use music and fun to keep kids and adults in shape through cardiovascular exercise. Springdale's Brad Lord received his grant money to purchase equipment and bring this unique program to his school.
