Local Students & Teachers Receive Grants, Scholarships During Celebration


The Fayetteville Public Education Foundation is investing in our local teaching staff and students.

During its 19th Annual Celebration of Excellence held Monday, the foundation awarded close to $286,000 in grants and scholarships to educators and students.

Katie Dolan, a librarian with Leverette Elementary, received three grants from the foundation this year. She said the impact they’ve had has been immeasurable. 

“There’s no way that I would have made an impact that I was able to make with the number of new books and the quality of new books that I got into the library,” Dolan said. 

A total of 76 educator grants and 12 scholarships were awarded at the celebration of excellence.
