  • TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (10/10/13)--First Commerce CU has given $10,525 to the Foundation for Leon County Schools--a gift that will be matched by a state grant of $7,525. Teachers have until Oct. 22 to apply for mini-grants from the funds, which, since 1986, have helped fund special projects for students, many of them low-performing. Amon Rwito, a teacher who was awarded grant funding last year, used part of a donation to finance a field trip to Challenger Learning Center, classroom visits by Florida State University laboratory scientists, and materials from the Boston Museum of Science for 120 second and fifth graders. "Since serving on the board of The Foundation for Leon County Schools, I have been especially impressed and inspired by the Teacher Mini-Grant Program," said Mary Estes, FCCU senior vice president/chief operating officer. "Our teachers are treasured assets in our community, and these grants provide funding to help them take their passion and creativity to the next level in the classroom."  The announcement was made at Kate Sullivan Elementary School.
