Our very own Mr. Whiting applied for and was awarded a Nebo Education Foundation grant for classroom resources to assist with assessment in his classes. 

As quoted from Nebo.edu, “Mr. Jerry Whiting, science teacher at Spanish Fork Junior, said, ‘The main purpose for this grant is when using Nearpod on the students’ class Chromebooks. Nearpod has proven invaluable to me as a teacher to have immediate feedback. This allows me to correct misconceptions on the spot and allows me to have a ‘back and forth’ discussion as a class. Thank you for approving the grant! I look forward to working with the foundation in the near future.’”

Nebo Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing resources to enrich student learning. Without headlines and behind the scenes, volunteers and businesses are quietly making major contributions to our community's future by giving their time, money, equipment and supplies to our local schools. In a day when too many are quick to criticize, others are actively helping.
