Perry County Board of Education - Grant Recipient for the Ala Tom RC & D Councils
Francis Marion School would like to thank the Ala-Tom RC & D Council for their generous support of the Perry County School District. Ala-Tom awarded a generous $4300.00 reimbursement grant to Dr. Effie Fields, the 7th & 8th grade English Language Arts teacher of Francis Marion High School. The funds were used to support the purchase of technology to be used with Dr. Fields' students. According to its website, "RC&D is an exciting local nonprofit organization led by local community leaders. RC&D was initially started back in the 1960’s to address rural poverty and help rural communities generate sustainable natural resource-based economies."
