Community education program in Martin awarded grants
INEZ — The Martin County Community Education program was recently awarded three grants to use in its after-school initiative with Inez First Baptist Church and Inez Elementary Family Resource Center.

A "Teaching Tolerance" grant of $1,000 was awarded by the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery, Ala. These resources will be used to educate students about other cultural and racial backgrounds. They will also be used to help students directly communicate with their peers from diverse areas around North America.

An "AT&T CARES Youth Service Action" grant of $500 was awarded by the Youth Service America in Washington, D.C. These funds will be used April 11-13 as part of the "Taking Our County Back From Drugs" initiative. During this weekend, students will lead a concerted drug awareness/education effort across the community.

A $500 grant was also awarded by Mountain Comprehensive Care through its local KY-ASAP Board. This money will also be used as part of the "Taking Our Community Back From Drugs" initiative.
