Combs Education Foundation Awards Mini Grants to Local Teachers, Fuelling Innovative Projects


The Combs Education Foundation has once again demonstrated its unwavering commitment to educational excellence within the Combs District by awarding ten $1,000 mini grants to deserving teachers. This generous initiative marks a vibrant start to the second half of the academic year, injecting a burst of enthusiasm and support for both educators and students alike.

The announcement, made during the district's welcome back day, came as a delightful surprise to the ten dedicated educators. These grants are not just a financial boost but also a recognition of the teachers' relentless efforts in enhancing classroom experiences and fostering a nurturing learning environment.

The recipients of the grants are a testament to the diverse and dynamic talent within the Combs District. Congratulations to the following teachers, each of whom has shown exceptional dedication and creativity in their educational approach:

  • Michelle Guest from Combs Traditional Academy (CTA)
  • Heidi Bush and Jessica Furman from Comanche High School (CHS)
  • Heaven Gomez and Holly Sipes from Comanche Middle School (CMS)
  • Jennifer Krickeberg from Combs Traditional Academy (CTA)
  • Laura Frier and Laura Loar from Ellsworth Elementary School (EES)
  • Heidi Fajardo from Ranch Elementary School (RES)
  • Kelsy Saint from San Tan Elementary School (SES)

Each of these educators now has the opportunity to bring to life special projects that promise to enrich the educational experiences of their students. These projects, though varied in nature, share a common goal: to ignite curiosity, foster innovation, and facilitate deeper learning.

As the second semester unfolds, the excitement is palpable within the Combs District. The mini grants from the Combs Education Foundation are not just a financial contribution but a symbol of trust and belief in the abilities of these educators. It's a powerful reminder that when teachers are supported and valued, the entire educational ecosystem thrives.

In conclusion, the Combs Education Foundation's mini grants initiative is a shining example of how targeted support can make a significant difference in the educational landscape. It's a cause for celebration and an inspiring start to the second half of the year. We extend our heartiest congratulations to all the grant recipients and eagerly anticipate the wonderful contributions these projects will make to the Combs District.

Let's all cheer for these educators as they embark on this exciting journey of innovation and discovery, furthering the mission of the Combs Education Foundation in nurturing the next generation of learners and leaders.
