In Local Area News

Jackson Electric Membership Corporation (EMC) awarded three middle schools in Hall County $6,794 in Bright Ideas grant funds for four innovative classroom projects.

Two teachers from Chestatee Academy won Bright Ideas grants: Dawn Hudgins received a $2,000 grant to teach her students about genealogical research methods, including DNA analysis; and Glen Lawson’s $1,900 grant will allow students to use wired and wireless sensors to detect the motion of objects.

At Cherokee Bluff Middle School, Jacqueline Greene received a $1,860 grant to create a Snoezelen Room, which creates a student-controlled, multi-sensory environment for students with multiple disabilities.

At Gainesville Middle School, Dory Moore won a $1,034 Bright Ideas grant for her “Ukuleles for the Classroom” project.

In 2019, Jackson EMC awarded a total of $61,720 in Bright Ideas grants to 40 teachers in 25 middle schools across its service area.

The Bright Ideas grant program awards up to $2,000 annually to middle school teachers in Jackson EMC’s service area for innovative classroom projects that would go unfunded otherwise.  An independent panel of judges evaluates the applications based on measurable goals and objectives, innovation, student involvement and implementation plans.
