Extra Credit Union Awards $10,000 in Classroom Grants

Much of the drama equipment and sets were damaged in an unfortunate flood at Fitzgerald High School last year. Fortunately for teacher Rebecca Mulligan, she will be able to begin replacing and recreating some of that equipment with a Teacher Extra-curricular Activity Money (TEAM) Classroom Grant from Extra Credit Union.

Extra Credit Union awarded Mulligan and seven other local teachers a total of $10,000 in grants to help fill in the gaps a district budget may not be able to cover.

Through Extra Credit Union’s commitment to education and its heart to serve, ECU is proud to announce this year’s grant recipients and projects:

  • Rebecca Mulligan, Fitzgerald High School: $450 to purchase new drama equipment that was damaged in a flood at the school last year

  • Karen Janis, Beer Middle School: $1,000 to cover the cost of materials for students to make celebration boards to display at the eighth-grade graduation

  • Sara Sonnenfeld, Fitzgerald High School: $350 to pay for the bus cost and substitute cost for the leadership class to attend a team-building trip to Adventure Park

  • Susie Gurney, Carter Middle School: $2,000 to help cover the cost for students with positive behavior to attend a team-building field trip at the Warren Recreational Center

  • Melissa Hardy, Carleton Middle School: $1,939.84 to purchase 31 audio books for students who are struggling with reading levels, which will be available in the media center for all students to utilize
