DETROIT — The Meemic Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Michigan-based Meemic Insurance Co., announced today that 14 schools across the state have received grants. Recipients include Adrian College, East Detroit High, and St. Charles Borromeo.
The grants will be utilized for a wide variety of programs and purposes across the state. Adrian College received $2,400 to work with Michigan International Speedway to enhance the Track and Explore program with professionally developed tour brochures and trail signage. East Detroit High received $2,400 to repair and replace band instruments and uniforms. St. Charles Borromeo is using their $512.50 to fund an anti-bullying program at their school.
“The goal of Meemic Foundation grants is to provide the resources necessary for teachers to create a dynamic learning environment for students,” said Pam Harlin, spokeswoman for The Meemic Foundation. “Exceptional educators are always looking for new and creative ways to inspire their students. We want to make sure that financial concerns don’t stand in the way of those ideas.”
