Teachers Win Back-to-School Grants

Tom Wilson Agency representatives have been busy traveling to schools to present teachers with $100 Back-to-School Grants from The Meemic Foundation. According to a 2013 survey by the National School Supply and Equipment Association, public school teachers spend $1.6 billion out of pocket each year for supplies and gear for the classrooms. The BtS Grant will help teachers offset those costs.
