Francis Bellamy Pre-School Center teacher, Terri Perkins received a grant from Forum Credit Union today in the amount of $2,500.

Perkins was one of only 15 educators to win the award. She was awarded the grant during a special visit to the school on Wednesday.

She will use the funds for character education curriculum. Character education is a precursor for anti-bullying education and is specific to pre-school students.

“Character education will help build respect and friendship among the students,” Perkins said.

We are so excited for the pre-school students at Francis Bellamy as they learn to develop strong character with the help from Forum Credit Union’s grant!
