For years the MCEF has been giving teachers mini-grant awards to teachers in all three of the school systems in McMinn County. Approximately $120,000 has been distributed to our schools through this program. In 2017 a little over $15,000 was given. In 2018 we will be awarding $16,000. Below are photographs of some of the students using just a few of the wide variety of items purchased through these grants.
