The Wisconsin State Journal featured an article about John Becker, who teaches music at Sauk Trail and Sunset Ridge elementary schools, using his grant from the Education Foundation. He received a $600 grant last fall to hire professional musicians to host virtual concerts, allowing students to work on percussion, drumming and dance skills using their music supply kits at home.
The Education Foundation is honored to support John’s work and help make his great idea a reality for his students.
His grant was one of six the Education Foundation awarded in 2020, totaling $10,575. Counting the 2020 recipients, the Education Foundation has awarded 110 grants worth more than $115,000 since 2013.
