BULLHEAD CITY, AZ – Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC) awarded eighteen $200 classroom grants to educators for financial assistance in making classroom learning more engaging.

Thirty-two applications were received for the eighteen available grants. A team at MEC evaluated the projects submitted by educators basing their grading on creativity, following application instructions, classroom integration, as well as benefits and financial need to students. Classroom Grants are funded by assigned capital credits at no cost to the cooperative or its members.

“Every year teachers throughout the MEC service area turn in creative project ideas and we look forward to the new ways educators will implement these programs into the classroom,” said Heather Foreman, public affairs coordinator, “It’s never an easy process, with so many excellent projects, making it difficult to choose the 18 winners.”

Project ideas ranged from science, reading, math, wood working, construction, social studies, to music and organization. The eighteen selected educators represent nine schools where their various K-12 programs will be implemented. The schools are Bullhead Middle School, Camp Mohave Elementary School, Desert Star Academy, Desert Valley School, Fort Mojave Elementary School, Mohave Accelerated Learning Center, Sunrise Elementary School, Topock Elementary School, and Young Scholars Academy.

Congratulations to educators: Amber Gaudry, Tamsin Gardetto, Nicole Jarman, Samantha Penfold, Jennifer Turner, Juvicel De Guzman, Judy Chesla, Mike Jackson, Laci Ortiz, Aubry Sterk, Jorden Ostrowski, Brianna Guerrero, Valari Delgadillo, Ralph Green, Arlene Barnette, Dione DeBord, Maria Cid, and Marie Christine Villegas.

We would like to thank all educators who applied and appreciate their efforts in making learning fun and effective for our youth. Checks were awarded at the luncheon May 2, 2024.
