McMurry Alumni receive grant for initiatives
Abilene Education Foundation Star Grants totaling $7,390.84 were awarded to nine alumni from the McMurry School of Education, helping to fund upcoming initiatives and projects in their classrooms. Tanjena Famble’s second graders will be able to write on the board without leaving their desks. Amanda Baldwin’s high school art students will be able to make fused glass jewelry as they learn about the science behind working with that material. Carey Kitts will have an after school music club for children who live in one of Abilene’s low socio-economic neighborhoods. These are only three projects being produced by the grant initiative winners, who also include McMurry alumni Sujan Kilton, Lori Jaggars, Stephanie Mouat, Susan Folds, Robin Harrison, and Mildred Pena.
