Odessa, TEXAS (Fox 24 News) – The Education Foundation is a nonprofit meant to create opportunities within Ector County ISD. Director Celeste Potter explains some of the programs the Education Foundation offers, like their Bookworms Literacy Program. It helps students in grades Pre-K through first grade to enjoy reading and to keep the habit of reading going when they are at home.
The Education Foundation also has a grant program for teachers to help give students innovative experiences like field trips, building greenhouse for hands-on learning, and other projects.
Potter says volunteers are a critical part of the Education Foundation, but that the pandemic meant they could not help. Foundation members say they are looking for volunteers again, and they welcome donations to keep their programs and grant opportunities going.
