Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:
Halifax
Description:

The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Halifax County Schools (HCS) for a STEM education and workforce development initiative. The initiative will give all middle school students early access to real-world learning experiences centered around alternative energy, due to the growth of solar farms and around topics relevant to local employers such as Cummins, PCB, Lowe’s, Reser’s and McLane. This initiative will expose students to STEM careers and help them identify career pathways that prepare them to earn community college credentials before graduating high school. Golden LEAF funds will be used for STEM equipment and materials for two middle schools and professional development for teachers.
