Garland-based manufacturer Ecolab has supported Garland ISD for decades. The organization partnered with the Garland ISD Education Foundation (GEF) 31 years ago, providing more than 530 grants to champion innovative teaching and learning. Surpassing the $1 million mark this year, Ecolab continued its long-standing tradition by awarding $50,986 to district teachers at a reception Sept. 13.
“A 31-year partnership is remarkable and rare,” said GEF President Lisa Cox. “We are so appreciative of Ecolab’s support. Without strong community partners like them, we would not be able to sponsor our educators and impact classrooms districtwide.”
This year’s grant winners will enhance education through a range of mediums, including movie-based lessons, IV injection arm models and yoga.
