Clarke receives award from retired teachers

Teacher Valerie Clarke, is shown receiving an Active Teacher Grant check for $500 from the Indiana Retired Teachers Foundation. Presenting the check is Daviess/Martin Retired Teacher Association president Alice Jones. Each year the foundation awards two grants of up to $500 to each of 10 areas in the state of Indiana. No grants were awarded in 2020 due to the Covid, so this year four grants were awarded in each of the 10 areas. A selection committee of retired teachers reviewed all projects submitted in our area and Clarke’s was chosen from the many submitted. Her students will benefit from all her hard work.
