ELM GROVE, W.Va. (WTRF) – Several local middle school teachers were presented with McDonald’s Make Activities Count (MAC) Grants on Monday.
The 14 MAC Grants winners were honored at the McDonald’s in Elm Grove.
Educators will receive up to $500 for interesting and educational projects to help learning come alive in their classrooms.
“It’s just giving me a chance to get a little extra money, and I want to try something new and different,” said Sheryl Sonk, a language arts teacher at Union Local Middle School.
Since its inception, the McDonald’s MAC Grants program has provided more than $75,000 to teachers in the Ohio Valley.
“We’re just very excited, very happy to get this,” said Bellaire Middle school math teacher Kellie Cusick. “It makes a world of difference in the classroom. We feel blessed.”
Nationwide, the “MAC Grants” program has provided more than $3 million to assist middle school teachers, just like the ones honored at the Elm Grove McDonald’s.
