Milford Education Foundation Teacher Mini Grants

Over $5,000 Awarded in Teacher Mini Grants

Earlier this month, The Milford Education Foundation awarded 16 teachers across the Milford Public School District $5,785 in funding through its Teacher Mini-Grant Program.

To date, MEF has distributed over $10,700 in teacher mini-grants and expanded its program to two award periods per academic year.

On January 8th, Augie Harrigan and James Maroney, MEF president and former president respectively, presented the teachers with their checks. Augie and James worked with the school principals to surprise the teachers in their classrooms.
