Pride in the Tiger teacher impact grants announced

MARSHALL — The Pride in the Tiger Foundation (PITF) has awarded $48,816 in teacher impact grants for the first cycle of the school year. These grants are awarded to both public and private schools.

According to the Pride in the Tiger, educators within all of Marshall’s schools complete grant applications which are reviewed by the foundation teacher impact grant committee. Applications are scored based on meeting the Foundation’s mission, having a clear objective, and lasting impact. The committee makes a recommendation to the full PITF board of directors.

The grants are awarded twice a year, in October and March.

Some of the grants supported in this grant cycle include:

• Missoula Children’s Theater — Holy Redeemer

• Fine Art’s February — True Light Christian School

• Read Naturally Live — Samuel Lutheran School

• Automotive Repair Tools for the CTE Center — Marshall High School

• Maude Hart Lovelace Books — Marshall Middle School

• Playaway Audio Books — Southview Elementary

• Soft Start Morning Bins — Park Side Elementary

“The Pride in the Tiger Foundation is pleased to be able to support these worthwhile educational opportunities,” said Executive Director Krista Bjella. “School budgets are stretched today, and these programs and initiatives would not be possible without the financial support of the Foundation and its mission to support kids.”

For the 2020-21 school year, the foundation granted $76,516.68 in teacher impact grants. The Foundation also awarded $182,225 in scholarships to graduating Marshall High School seniors.
