Hartsville Kiwanis Club grants several community awards
The Hartsville Kiwanis Club recently awarded grants to three local Hartsville Schools. Tiffani Roberts, Guidance Counselor at Southside Early Childhood Center, received a $200 grant for her program. This money will go directly to purchasing books and materials for the Social Emotional Learning Through Books & Play Program. Kiwanian Craig Weber (Keller Williams Realty Palmetto) presented the check to Ms. Roberts and the Principal of Southside ECC, Patricia Toney.
Christina Ewing, School Counselor at Carolina Elementary, received a $500 grant from Hartsville Kiwanis
for Carolina Elementary’s Book of the Month – Character Education Program. Each month, the book
chosen will focus on a character trait that they want to instill in their students. Their goal is to award one
student, from each of the 13 homerooms, who have embodied the character trait throughout the month with a copy of the month’s book.
Kiwanians Ken Hughes, Craig Weber, & Dave Carlton, presented the check to Ms. Ewing and Kourtney Grant, Carolina Elementary’s Coordinating Teacher.
Lindsay Henrich, STEAM Director at Thomas Hart Academy, was awarded a $500 grant for the purchase of a 3-D printer for the STEAM Lab. Students will get the chance to learn about this exciting technology and will also make items to sell for future fundraising opportunities, using the 3-D printer. Kiwanians Craig Weber, Murphy Monk (Greater Hartsville Chamber of Commerce), and Ken Hughes, presented the check to Ms. Henrich and Anna Tingen, Thomas Hart Academy’s Director of Fundraising and Marketing.
The money for grants from Hartsville Kiwanis Club is raised through the Club’s annual BBQ Chicken plate fundraiser that happens in May each year. The mission of the Hartsville Kiwanis Club is to support children and education in the Hartsville community.
