CBA teachers Sister Suzanne Dunn, Kathleen Hanson, and Gretchen Pledger have each been awarded the 2011 McDonalds MAC Grant that gives deserving teachers $500 to spend on creative and fun activities that help students learn with a hands on approach in the classroom.
All three educators come from CBAs Junior High. Sister Sue teaches Spanish, Gretchen Pledger teaches English and Kathleen Hanson serves as the Assistant Principal for the Junior High School.
Because of the outstanding number of applicants, the McDonalds MAC Grant noted the difficulty in selecting a very small number of dedicated teachers to which the grant would be awarded. We are proud to not have one, but three recipients of the grant, and we commend the teachers for their creative outreach.
