Three Northern Panhandle Middle School Teachers Receive McDonald’s Grants
Three Northern Panhandle middle school teachers were presented with McDonald’s “Make Activities Count Grants” during a special presentation and this week at McDonald’s in Elm Grove.
Now in its 24th consecutive year, the McDonald’s MAC Grants program provides school teachers up to $500 for interesting and educational projects to help learning come alive in their classrooms. To date, regional McDonald’s restaurants have awarded more than $2.75 million to support hands-on learning in middle school classrooms through the MAC Grants program.
Local winners of the MAC Grants were Morgan Allman, of Our Lady of Peace; Lori Healy, of Washington Lands Elementary School; and William Schultz, of Warwood School.
Local McDonald’s Owner/Operators Ross and Carol Stoltz, along with their son, Bob, held the special presentation ceremony for this year’s MAC Grant winners at the Elm Grove restaurant.
This year alone, McDonald’s has awarded more than $25,000 in MAC grants to more than 60 teachers throughout northern and central West Virginia, southeastern Ohio and the greater Pittsburgh area.
“Because McDonald’s recognizes that children benefit from hands-on learning experiences, our MAC Grants program awards funds to local teachers to help them Make Activities Count in their classrooms,” Ross Stoltz said.
McDonald’s of Elm Grove is one of 11 McDonald’s restaurants that are owned and operated by the Stoltz family.
