$10,000 grant

Carolyn Thomas, a science teacher at Wildwood Middle School in Shenandoah Junction, has won a $10,000 grant from the Dominion Educational Partnership. The money will support her exSTREAM Makeover, which engages 7th and 8th grade students in the study of brook trout and stream restoration. Bob Orndorff, Dominion Resource’s managing director of state and local government affairs, presented the check to Thomas at her school on Sept. 13. Only five other proposals in West Virginia won such grants. The exSTREAM Makeover builds on the experiences and challenges of a brook trout project that began in 2011. Through classroom study, collaborative research and field experiences students will address the question “Can Flowing Springs in Ranson be restored to support brook trout?” For more on the project, go to boe.jeffk12.wv.us/thomas.
