The Northwestern Water and Sewer District has awarded 10 grants valued at over $5,000 to fund water-focused educational programs in local schools.
The district’s WATER (Water And Environment Teacher Education Resources) grants provide direct funding to support educators in teaching about the significance of water resources in local schools.
The district congratulates the following educators:
Eastwood High School – Keith Madaras and Eric Rutherford
Elmwood Middle School – Katie Smith, Ashley Kuehne, Rebecca Peery, Alyssa Reynolds, Robin Reynolds
Otsego High School – Bob Furlong
Patrick Henry – Angie Ballow
Rossford Schools – Rachel Hood
“We are committed to ensuring our local schools have the resources they need to understand and protect their water supply,” said District President Jerry Greiner. “By investing in education and research, we empower our future leaders to create a more sustainable world for generations to come.”
The WATER grant program was introduced by the district in December 2014 as part of its mission to give back to the schools and communities it serves. The program seeks to create awareness about the importance of water and the environment and support responsible environmental stewardship.
