DOTHAN: The Dothan Education Foundation recently received a generous $10,000 grant from Wells Fargo to benefit Dothan Education Foundation’s annual Teacher and School Grants program.
“Wells Fargo continues to be an outstanding partner in education with the Dothan Education Foundation. Their support of the DEF Teacher and School Grant Program impact students, teachers and administrators in our community,” said Gindi Prutzman, Dothan Education Foundation President. “Wells Fargo knows the importance of quality education in Dothan and we greatly appreciate this grant and the work they do.”
“Wells Fargo fully advocates for education as one of the most important investments we can make in our country’s future,” said Dothan Branch Manager for Wells Fargo Jamie Lynne McKnight. “The youth of today are tomorrow’s business owners, leaders and teachers, and we are honored to support the Dothan Education Foundation and the public schools to promote educational success. We will continuously support educational efforts within Dothan and across the state of Alabama through our many initiatives committed to this vital life discipline."
Since 1995, the Dothan Education Foundation has awarded over $480,000 in grants to Dothan City School teachers and principals to encourage innovative teaching to enhance the educational experience for students by supplying funds for activities that would otherwise be unavailable - activities outside the scope of normal funding. Community support in this tournament will continue to foster educational success for our students and grow creative classrooms.
