The PSJA Education Foundation awarded three of our teachers a mini grant. The award went to law enforcement educators Leticia Garza, Robert Contreras, and John Lucio.

The Foundation was founded in 2013, and this non-profit organization promotes excellence in education. They believe education is the key to a bright future. Their goal is to provide scholarships for students and grants for teachers to encourage excellence among students.

“I’m super excited and very proud of them getting the grant because I know that the students will receive many benefits for their future,” Raquel Garcia, Early College Director, said.

Students will be directly impacted by the award.

“Getting this grant is so beneficial because it will really help,” senior Stephanie Gonzalez, security cadet, said.

Our teachers were awarded $500 and  plan on buying new equipment, such as radios, walkie-talkies, and they will be able to pay for a two-day field-trip that will expose them to the law-enforcement profession.

“I hope that with the purchase of the radios, the teachers will utilize it to give students the hands on real-life experience that our officers from the community utilize,” Bobbie Sue Gonzalez, assistant principal, said.

Garza began the application and included the other to law enforcement teachers. Lucio and Contreras’s students will also benefit.

“I had to write a 250 word summary, an objective, project timeline, and community collaboration,” Garza said.
