English teacher Karen Davis received one of the Johnson County Community Foundation Surprise Mini-Grants for $250 today for Teacher Appreciation Day. At about 11:30 this morning, representatives from the JCCF, including intern and CG alumni Cayman Jarvis, arrived to surprise Davis with a $250 check and goodie bag during class.
The surprise grant was offered on Facebook, where Davis’s nomination read, “Karen Davis of Center Grove High School still expects, and usually gets, the very best her students can do.”
Davis said, “I was surprised and excited and appreciative that someone would do that.”
The Johnson County Community Foundation gave eight grants throughout the county today. To find out more about the Foundation’s work, check them out on Facebook or Twitter or on the web at jccf.org.
