Montebello Rotary Club Awards Teacher Mini-Grants by Anne Donofrio-Holter

from Spotlight on Montebello, 2008

          The Montebello Rotary Club recently presented a total of $1500 in mini-grants to instructors Richard Williams of Vail High School, William Shultheis of Schurr High School, and Gilbert Gomez of Montebello High School.

Williams’ project, entitled “Our Rights,” will help students get a better understanding of the U.S. Constitution.  The funds will be used to purchase books and supplemental materials.

Shultheis’ project, entitled “Geometry Elective,” will enable students to build a 3-D figure using geometric principles.

Gomez’s project, entitled “Advance Placement Review Sessions,” will provide lunch for students attending prep classes for an upcoming advance placement government test.

“We are very grateful to the Montebello Rotary Club for their support and providing for us with the funds needed for this project,” said Gomez.

This year the club, which has been granting mini-grants for the past 11 years, received several applications.  Rotary Vocational Service director Phyllis Murakawa met with school personnel to discuss the need and benefit of each application.

Mini-grants are awarded for any activity or project that enhances the teaching process for a large number of students and offers a long term benefit to the school.  There must be limited or no other funds available from the school district or other sources.
