The Collins Hill Education Foundation, also known as CHEF, is proud to be on the field at this time presenting CHEF monetary grants to teachers in all six cluster schools tonight. CHEF was established in 2006 to enrich the students of the Collins Hill Cluster schools by initiating a collaborative effort between schools and the surrounding community to expand and strengthen academic opportunities, and to reaffirm their strong commitment to educational and fine arts excellence.
To date CHEF has awarded 118 grants totaling over $111,000.00 dollars to the six cluster schools. The grants CHEF awards to teachers each year are like loving deposits into the hearts and minds of all of the nearly 10,000 children in our Collins Hill cluster schools community. Presenting the awards certificates is the chair of the grants committee, Dr. Laurina Williams.
The Collins Hill Education Foundation was established in 2006 to support each of the six schools and the almost 10,000 students in the Collins Hill cluster. CHEF continues to initiate a collaborative effort between schools and surrounding communities to expand and strengthen academic opportunities, as well as reaffirm commitment to educational and fine arts excellence.
The foundation's main objective is to work with sponsors to raise at minimum $45 per child in the cluster. This money will fund grants for extracurricular projects and creative activities supporting education and be available to teachers and students. CHEF has awarded over $50,000 in grants to all of the Collins Hill cluster schools.
