Hutchison Elementary – Joe Gurecky of Gurecky Manufacturing presents a check to Hutchison 4th-grade teacher TiffanyGarcia.

For the 12th year, the Lamar Educational Awards Foundation (L.E.A.F.) delivered pre-holiday surprises that will eventually delight boys and girls around the district.
L.E.A.F. awarded a total of $203,660 November 16 to 105 grant winners. Since 2000, the foundation has given out $1,480,575 to teachers providing innovation in the classrooms.

“This is always my favorite day of the school year,” said L.E.A.F Executive Director Janice Knight. “The teachers are always so grateful and once the kids realize what types of things their teachers can now buy, it really creates some excitement.”

The Lamar Educational Awards Foundation is a non-profit community based organization dedicated to securing and distributing resources to Lamar CISD that will enhance educational programs.

L.E.A.F’s major fundraiser, Men Who Cook, presented by Andy Sanford, Ryan O’Hara and Diana Alexander of RBC Wealth Management, is scheduled for February 18 at Safari Texas.
