 mini grants
A total of 49 Hobbs teachers - some of them shown here with Eagle Trust Foundation President Bill Richards (left) and Hobbs School Board President Gary Eidson (right) - received early Christmas presents in the form of educational grants on Monday.

Awarded by the Eagle Trust Foundation, most of the “mini-grants” were in the $500 range and totaled $21,689, according to TJ Parks, Hobbs Municipal Schools superintendent (shown in back).
  The money came from a combination of individual and business donations to the Eagle Trust Foundation. A portion of proceeds from Hobbs High School athletic events is also funneled into the trust foundation. 
   Established in September 2011, the Eagle Trust Foundation’s purpose is to help teachers with classroom needs while giving community members an insight into the operation of the Hobbs Municipal Schools district. A total of $175,000 grants have been awarded to Hobbs teachers during the organizations five-year history.
  The Foundation’s board of directors meets regularly to approve grant requests and receive updates on HMS projects.
This year’s grant opportunity was announced to teachers on all campuses at every grade level earlier in the year.
The grants awarded on Monday will enhance a multitude of classroom projects and/or update software needs. The purchase of books and the supplementing of art, Spanish and literacy materials are among the funded projects. Anyone wishing to make a tax-deductible contribution or wanting more info about the Eagle Trust Foundation may contact Parks at 433-0100.
