The Choctawhatchee Electric Cooperative has recently made a generous donation on behalf of their members to the Walton County School District via the Walton Education Foundation. The funds will be matched $1 for $1 from the State of Florida through the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations, and will be used for classroom grants. The grant applications will be taken during the month of September, and awarded the first of November.
WCSD is grateful for the partnership with CHELCO, and for their dedication to the families and children of Walton County. This collaboration will enable our teachers the opportunity to provide experiences and instruction to our students in an EPIC way. Special thanks is also extended to the Walton Education Foundation for the grant support they provide for our teachers and students.
