Congratulations to the 2019-2020 Innovation Grantees

by Dothan Education Foundation

On behalf of the 2019-2020 Dothan Education Board of Directors and Staff, we would like to announce the DEF Grantees for the school year. It was a difficult decision to make due to to large amount of applications and limited funding. We would like to congratulate the following teachers and schools and thank our wonderful partners Michelin and Wells Fargo. This year we were able to fund $26,544 dollars back into classrooms to reach more than 37% of the student population. More to come highlighting these projects and their incredible leaders.
