Elizabethton High School was among Tennessee nonprofit organizations, libraries and schools from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. The foundation awarded more than $815,000 to Tennessee youth literacy programs, which is part of $3 million awarded across the country. The purpose of the grants is to narrow the gap between learners’ needs and programs’ financial resources by providing books, technology, equipment or materials to youth education programs.
The Tennessee grants are expected to positively impact the lives of approximately 129,500 individuals in the state.
“During this back-to-school season, we are grateful for all of the educators, school officials, librarians, non-profit partners and volunteers who are working hard to help students excel and creating brighter futures for this generation of learners,” said Denine Torr, Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s executive director. “We hope these funds will help provide needed resources, enhance educational programming and position teachers and students for success.”
