Montrose Area Jr-Sr High School’s Carey Williams received an educational support grant from the Susquehanna Chapter of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR) at the MASD school board meeting on November 13. PASR Education Support Chairman Ellen Holdredge and Chapter President, John Manchester made the presentation.
A number of years ago a grant was created by PASR to make possible a program or activity that might not have been possible due to budget constraints. The Susquehanna Chapter is happy to continue to award those grants.
Williams is a “crafter” and has items at the Slanted Art Gallery. Using her crafting background, she plans to institute an afterschool craft club for students in grades 7-12. The club will meet once a week after school and participants will be able to ride the late bus home. In addition to doing crafts, as the certified school nurse, she hopes to incorporate informal chats about healthy lifestyle choices.
The Susquehanna Chapter of PASR is proud to have a small part in enhancing the education and life of students in the county.
