Huckabee Architects, the firm involved with designing Cleveland ISD’s new campuses, made a $7,500 donation on Monday night to the Cleveland ISD Education Foundation.

Every year, the Education Foundation provides teachers with innovative teaching grants to provide educational items, information and supplies that are not ordinarily covered in the District’s budget.

The Education Foundation, through its Red and White Scholarship program, also provides scholarships to graduating Cleveland High School seniors who are attending a college, university and/or trade school. 

According to Victoria Good, president of the Education Foundation, innovative teaching grants are awarded each fall and scholarships are awarded each May. As the fall deadline approaches, teachers will be notified by their school email of the grant opportunity, Good said.

The Education Foundation relies on the support of local businesses like Huckabee Architects in order to continue these beneficial works in the community.

Currently, the Education Foundation is promoting two fundraisers – a spring raffle and the sale of yard signs honoring the Class of 2021. The $20 signs are being provided through Good Promotions in Cleveland. Each sign will feature the graduate’s photo and name, and two extracurricular activities, such as band, football, etc.

The last date to order a yard sign is March 26.
