MT. VERNON — — More than $15,000 in grant funding has been announced from the Mt. Vernon Township High School Foundation for eight projects.

The teacher grant requests are for video capture equipment for the language arts department; standing stations for the language arts department; handheld digital recorders for the music department; digital document camera for the social science department; Shakespeare festival for the entire student body; moveable whiteboards for the math department; biology microscopes for the science department; and chemistry lab computers for the science department.

The teachers who asked for the grants and whose projects were funded include Diane Todd, Sheila Stowers, Mary Beth Mezo, Jessica Gamber, Nikki Bauer-Prost, Jessica Pilson, Nick Loafman, Cathy Kohnan and Dave Edwards.

This year is the largest single allocation for teacher grants since the foundation's start in 2005, according to information from the MVTHS Foundation.
