Mary Sapp has been selected to receive a Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) Promoting Innovation in Science and Mathematics (PRISM) grant in the amount of $2,708.00.  The grant will be awarded to East Yancey Middle School on her behalf for her project titled "Light Up Life- Macro to Micro." 

Through these PRISM grants, the Burroughs Wellcome Fund seeks to support K-12 teachers in their efforts to promote excitement for science and mathematics by providing grants for materials, equipment, and supplies related to the implementation of high quality, hands-on science and/or mathematics curriculum or activities in the classroom.

Thank you, Ms. Sapp for all that you do for the students at East Yancey!
