The Utah Credit Union Education Foundation is giving out a total of $9,000 to three schools so they can buy learning materials.
Kearns High School received $5,000 to purchase tools for automotive mechanics students in grades 10-12, Copper Hills Elementary in Magna got $2,000 to purchase guided level reading materials for third-graders and West Valley Elementary in West Valley City also received $2,000 to purchase high-level reading materials for sixth-graders.
The money comes from the foundation's 100% for Kids program. Teachers at the three schools Dianne Jones, Copper Hills; Tom Glasmann, Kearns High; and Patricia Creager, West Valley applied for the grants, according to a foundation statement.
Funds are contributed by member credit unions, their members "and anyone committed to improving education in Utah," the statement said.
