The Ankeny School Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of the Foundation grants the 2015-2016 school year. This year the foundation provided 41 grants totaling $33, 491.33. Since its inception in 2000, the Foundation has awarded more than $300,000 to teachers, clubs, students, and parents for use in educational endeavors that benefit students in Ankeny and reach beyond the regular budget limitations of the school system.
"The Foundation seeks to fund innovative projects that enhance student learning," said Brad Botos, Foundation President.
Botos, Foundation Vice President Darrin Eilander, and Foundation Secretary/Treasurer Steve Morrissey recently presented checks to each of this year's recipients.
"As we presented the checks, I enjoyed hearing about the various projects and seeing the passion from Ankeny's educators," added Botos.
