$79K in Educator Grants Awarded by Klein ISD Education Foundation
Klein ISD Education Foundation (KEF) directors, community members, and our Superintendent, Dr. Jenny McGown, made surprise visits aboard the KEF Celebration Express, delivering $79,134 in innovative classroom grants.
School staff and grant writers from across the district were overwhelmed with excitement as dozens of KEF supporters and volunteers clapped and cheered down the halls with oversized checks for grant recipients.
“Surprising our phenomenal educators with these generously donated funds is always a highlight,” Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “I want to extend my deepest gratitude to the Klein ISD Education Foundation and our generous grant sponsors for making today such an exciting and rewarding day for our Klein Family.”
This fall, the KEF Celebration Express delivered grants for ground-breaking programs that will bring education to life for our learners in various ways. These grants were made possible by the support of numerous loyal community partners.
“My heart is incredibly full of gratitude today for the Klein ISD Education Foundation Directors, our sponsors, and the educators across Klein ISD who go above and beyond to provide the best learning experiences for our students,” KEF Director Christy Spisak said. “Celebration Express Day is always the very best day of the year, and today was no exception!”
