Women’s League Grants $1,000 for Education Club recognizes two Hartsville teachers
Two Hartsville teachers will be awarded $500 grants for the upcoming school year thanks to the Women’s League of Hartsville. Emily Maloney and Candice Parker will receive the funds based on grant applications submitted to the league. Women’s League president Brandy Stellingworth said, “Children are our future and teachers play an important role in shaping students into productive citizens. Women’s League is proud to support education in our community.”
Maloney has been recognized by the school district for use of technology in the classroom at Hartsville Middle School. She will be using her $500 grant to fund her proposed project: “Flexible seating in sixth grade.” She intends to replace traditional desk seating with alternative seats such as beanbags, ottomans, cushions, exercise balls as well as tall stools and raised tables. Parker is currently a third grade English at North Hartsville Elementary. With her $500 grant, she plans to encourage and motivate her students to read. Her project, “Discover,” will expand her current classroom library.
The Women’s League will be honoring Maloney and Parker during a special event on Wednesday, August 3 at 7 p.m. at Retrofit sip-n-seat, located at 152 Mantissa Alley in Hartsville. The recipients’ friends, family and Women’s League members are invited to attend.
