Foundation to give teachers awards
The Peabody Community Foundation will award $1,125 Tuesday to three Peabody junior high and high school counselors.
The grants are for an FFA outdoor lab, a rhythm bucket band, a graphic design program, and student leadership opportunities.
Counselor Haley Vivone will get funds to send several Peabody-Burns students to a four-day youth leadership event at Kansas State University.
The foundation created a pass-through fund earlier this year to help the community with COVID-19 response. More than $4,000 has been granted so far.
Matching funds of up to $6,000 have been provided by the Jewell family and the PCF board of directors.
Donations may be made at www.bit.ly/donate-peabodycf or by mailing a check payable to “Peabody Community Foundation” to PCF at P.O. Box 18, Peabody, KS 66866.
