Central High School math teacher Ms. Lyn Johnson-Cole was awarded a $1,000 Carroll EMC Bright Ideas Grant! Ms. Cole has been awarded numerous grants in the past. 

Her grant was written for the purchase of a Hovercam Ultra 8 DOC camera HDMI 13 VGA Connectivity which will provide the necessary medium to allow students to see clearly and understand the graphing calculator usage. The Hovercam will be used to see calculations and graphing characteristics which are important in the honors algebra 2 curriculum. Ms. Cole said, “It’s important for student to have a complete understanding of calculations and graphs to continue learning more progressively difficult math.” 

Carroll EMC awards Bright Ideas grants to local teachers funding innovative and creative educational projects for their students. Grants of up to $1,000 are presented to public school educators, teaching grades pre-K through 12, for classroom-based projects in a variety of subjects. The Carroll EMC Foundation is funded by “round-up” change from members paying their monthly power bills.
