The Garland ISD Education Foundation (GEF) surprised several Sachse teachers with grant money to fund various projects. In total, GEF funded 144 grants, seven of which, along with one scholarship, went to Sachse schools and teachers.
Members of the GEF board, including President Lisa Cox, Secretary Jenny Graves, along with Donna Butterfield, Scott McMurdie and Jeanie Marten, presented checks at Sachse High School, Sewell Elementary and Hudson Middle School Thursday, Jan. 14.
Two grants were awarded at Sachse High School. The first, funded by the Sachse Economic Development Corporation, went to theater tech teacher Joseph Murdock, who was awarded $1,771. Murdock said he would use the money to purchase hardware that allows students to use a computer as a lightboard.
