Happy birthday, Anna Maria Oyster Bars… Volume 8
I was never very good at paying attention in school… but if you have been paying attention to my monthly 12 Cheers messages over the last eight months (and I hope you have!)… then you know how important Education is to me and my family… and as a result, to the entire Anna Maria Oyster Bar family.
And, if you have followed local newspapers over the last 5 or so years, you will also know that the School District has been extremely hard at work ensuring that our schools are well-funded and well-maintained… so that each school is a happy, healthy learning environment for students to succeed.
Unfortunately, funding for special programs and products to enhance educational initiatives runs out. That’s where Manatee Education Foundation steps in, to financially support opportunities for Manatee County Public School teachers and students to educate and learn in innovative ways… beyond the allocated state dollars.
This organization does a wonderful job of collaborating with community and business leaders to develop funding for tools and projects that actually EXCITE these kids and motivate them to dig deeper.
Check out this great video below that shows the impact Manatee Education Foundation’s supplemental grants on students and teachers. MEF also facilitates dozens of scholarships for local students to further their education.
