Lacy Bornlearning Grant



A Christian County elementary school is receiving 11-thousand 500 dollars to help prepare young children to enter school ready to learn. The Toyota bornlearning Academy grant was presented to Lacy School officials Friday morning. United Way of Kentucky Executive Director, Doug Eberhart says the joint venture is about helping schools who are willing to go seek the help.


   
He adds the United Way and Toyota are recognizing the need for community support.


   
Superintendent Mary Ann Gemmill was pleased with the foresight of Lacy leadership.


   
Program Coordinator for Lacy, Debbie Olp says the first free workshop will be September 19 at 5:30 and they are already seeing interest.


   
The workshop will provide childcare and work with parents on best practices to build learning skills in toddlers and preschool age children. The grant is administered through the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence and over a five year period will donate one-million dollars to early childhood education. Lacy will be among 31 academies started in 2012 and 2013.
