Mountain America Awards Ten Teacher Grants in Nevada

WEST JORDAN, UT--(Marketwired - May 30, 2016) -   Mountain America Credit Union partnered with Nevada Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to award $300 grants to ten teachers in Nevada. The 2016 Mountain America Credit Union Grants were financial awards based on an essay about the teacher's plans to use the grant money for programs in their K-12 classrooms.

The ten teachers from five Nevada schools were recognized at Nevada PTA's Silver Star Banquet on Saturday, April 30, 2016. According to applicant essays, the money will be used for classroom and lesson enhancements including updated technology, equipment, supplies, and more.

"We all benefit when teachers are better equipped to educate our youth. We appreciate our partnership with Nevada PTA," says Spencer Carver, SEG development manager at Mountain America. "Teachers don't get enough recognition for their hard work and dedication to students."

"Mountain America is a true partner to the Nevada PTA. They are doing the right things in the right places to make a real difference for students, teachers, and parents," says Nevada PTA President Dave Flatt. "With the grants, the teachers are able to implement new and innovative programs in their classrooms that they would otherwise have had to pay for out of their own pockets."

Mountain America is also offering four educator grants of $500 each in partnership with Idaho PTA and is accepting applications through June 17, 2016. Further details and eligibility requirements can be found at https://www.macu.com/scholarships.
