CenturyLink, Inc. recently announced the winners of the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation’s Teachers and Technology grant program. The program, which began in 2008, awards grants of up to $5,000 to schools in CenturyLink’s local service areas on behalf of teachers who have developed plans to implement technology in their classrooms.

Among the schools receiving grants was Roswell ISD’s Sunset Elementary School, which was awarded $4,829.71.

“The grant applications we received this year were creative, innovative and outlined a definite need for technology in the classrooms throughout the state of New Mexico. The teachers requested a variety of resources to help their students learn more effectively and enrich their classroom experience,” said Larry North, CenturyLink vice president of operations in New Mexico. “We are pleased to be able to help these passionate educators expose their students to science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEM) concepts in their daily school lives.”

Across the U.S., more than 2,000 grant applications were submitted and 337 were selected for funding. Grants were awarded based on the impact they will have on students in the classroom and the overall innovation of the project.

In New Mexico, more than $45,000 is being awarded to teachers at 10 schools throughout the state.
