Donors Choose recently awarded a grant to the EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technology) program at Robert Morehead Middle School in the Dollarway School District.


The grant paid for red sports coats for 10 EAST students to wear during special events and when making presentations about their projects, according to a news release.


Coach James Jones, the EAST facilitator, is grateful to Donors Choose. The students will wear their sport coats at the upcoming EAST spring conference at Hot Springs, he said.


“EAST is an educational model focusing on student-driven service projects accomplished by using teamwork and cutting-edge technology,” according to the release. “Donors Choose is an organization that connects teachers in high-need communities, with donors who want to help.”
