Grant Helps Local Teacher

Education is key—tomorrow's promises are carried on the shoulders of today's teachers. To support education, Lt. Col. Wayne Wisneski, USAF, chapter president, presented a grant in the amount of $1,000 to Morgan Sansbury from Bay High School in Panama City, Florida, in September. Sansbury is this year's recipient of the AFCEA Science Teaching Tools grant. She teaches Geometry, Honors Geometry and Advanced International Certificate of Education Thinking Skills at Bay High School. The purpose of Science Teaching Tools is to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) teachers with funding for items or activities to enhance methods toward student learning. This grant will better equip Sansbury with the means to purchase items to augment STEM activities in her classrooms such as lab supplies, hardware, software, SMART boards, projectors or other equipment. Grants also can be used to fund extracurricular activities sponsored by STEM teachers such as robotics or math clubs and For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) competitions. The chapter selected Sansbury from a very competitive list of applicants. Chapter members wish her, her students and Bay High School all the best.
