Lexington One Foundation awards Fall 2021 Michelin Golden Apple Grants

Lexington, S.C. 09/06/2021 — The Lexington District One Educational Foundation recently awarded 11 Michelin Golden Apple Teacher Grants to deserving recipients in Lexington County School District One. Fall Grant awards totaled $2,750 and will positively impact 611 students in six schools in the district.

Congratulations to all of the Educational Foundation’s fall Michelin Golden Apple Grant award winners:

• Carolina Springs Elementary – Adrew Luangxay & Jennifer Henrickson

• Lexington High – Karen Kish • Lake Murray Elementary – Meghan Free, Katy Handell, Barbra Hubbard, Jenni Smith, Cassie Stone

• Oak Grove Elementary – Katie Alexander

• Rocky Creek Elementary – Dawn Jacobs

• Saxe Gotha Elementary – Mary Seebauer, Carmelita Cureton

The Foundation's leadership said that they want to offer their heartfelt thanks to Michelin North America’s Lexington, SC leadership for continuing to make these grants possible. The Lexington One Educational Foundation offers this grant opportunity to teachers in Lexington District One twice a year. Teachers can apply for up to $250 in grant funds to provide unique educational experiences for their students. The grants allow for more creative learning opportunities that are not typically supported by the school supply budget.

Some of the fall projects chosen included purchasing an expanded thematic book assortment to develop vocabulary and literacy skills for preschoolers with disabilities; exploring scientific and creative skills in elementary grades with STEM bins; increasing students’ math skills and confidence in mastering mathematics through analytical and numeric games; and purchasing items that teach life and independent skills to students with intellectual disabilities.

Congratulations to each of these teachers for their accomplishment in earning a Michelin Golden Apple Teacher Grant! We deeply appreciate Michelin’s continued generosity and commitment to Lexington School District One teachers and students through the company’s long-standing partnership with the Lexington One Educational Foundation!
