NEHS is pleased to announce that Cole Ross, Chapter Advisor at Etowah High School, Woodstock, GA, has been awarded a grant of $350 to attend the National Council of Teachers of English convention in November. Ross and colleagues will be presenting a session detailing the results of his chapter’s ongoing work with a pen-pal project with local elementary feeder schools. This effort has made a measurable difference in the writing skills the elementary students; Cole writes, “Through this partnership, we have been able to build a community within literacy while also seeing growth and passion develop in both groups of students.”
NEHS Advisor Grants
NEHS believes in educators and wishes to support them, particularly those who are willing to add even more to the stresses of 21st century education by willingly serving as NEHS Advisors. Advisors are encouraged to apply for these new grants that are intended to supplement other funding sources. Grants must be used to enhance the teaching and learning of the English language arts that will also directly impact leadership effectiveness for NEHS chapters.
Applications for Advisor Grants of up to $350 are accepted throughout the school year.
