Congratulations to Health Sciences Academy at Monroe Middle band teacher Cassandra McCormick, who recently received a $3,000 Omnova Solutions grant!
Each year, the Omnova Solutions Foundation awards grants to schools in support of specific improvements and opportunities in reading and economic literacy, math and science and more.
As a recipient of the Omnova Solutions grant, McCormick plans to put the grant funding towards repairs for band instruments as well as the purchase of additional sheet music for her students.
"We're all really excited and we're still wrapping our heads around it," she said. "Band instrument repairs can get really expensive really quickly, so I'm very grateful to have received this grant."
