In 2023, the Advisory Council awarded $123,751 and also chose to make four Special Project Grants. All agreed that one way to continue our focus of ‘making broad impacts throughout the County’ would be to work with our schools. Each District was contacted to consider projects that would have direct student impact and submitted their unique ideas for funding.
Representing Harris-Lake Park Schools, Superintendent Gary Richardson and Elementary Counselor Alysa Murphy are pictured accepting a BIG check from Evan Bensley, DCEF Vice Chairman and Ann Ditsworth, Council Advisor. H-LP will use their $2500 grant to help implement a new Positive Behavior Intervention System (PBIS) in the Elementary building. The program’s goal is to promote the social and emotional wellbeing of TK thru 5th grade students.
