Grant Recognition Awards

In 2010, Foundation 51 began a wonderful tradition of recognizing the teacher(s), student(s) or community member(s) who wrote the grant that best exemplified Foundation 51's mission the previous school year. The recipient(s) is honored at our annual auction and presented with a red marble apple inscribed "Foundation 51 Grant Recognition Award"  and the year for which it was won. We hope they display them as proudly as we give them!

"Framing for Permanent Display of Student Artwork at GHS"

This grant provided the funds to have artwork by two seniors in the AP Studio At class professionally framed and added to the Greely Permanent Art Collection.  A wonderful presentation of the framed artwork was done at Class Day, and the pieces are displayed in the GHS Library for all to view and enjoy.
