Building Bridges Between Schools and Military Families
The Schools Foundation serves as the bridge among education and business and the community, working to ensure adequate funding and to provide academic program support. Our most recent project, still under construction but nearing completion, is a bridge to the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC). We know that the unique needs of military children often mirror the needs of children in families that move across town or across the country. Thanks to Mike Gillespie and the Madison County Commission, local schools now have access to multiple MCEC programs, such as professional development for teachers.
