From STAFF REPORTS
The David Crockett High School baseball team received a grant to continue work on the team’s facilities in Washington County.
The Pioneer baseball team was awarded a Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant for $5,000. The grant funds will be used for baseball field house upgrades. Improvements have already been underway at Crockett within the field house and on baseball field at Crockett.
To secure the grant, the team had to apply a project for either technology upgrades, tools for STEM programs, facility renovations or safety improvements.
Lowe’s will donate $5 million to K-12 public/charter schools and parent teacher groups throughout the country this year.
Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant program started in 2006 and is funded by the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation.
The program is designed to support community and school projects in the communities near which a Lowe’s is located.
