District 186 Board Member Visits Lawrence Education Center

March 16, 2012

Lisa Funderburg, District 186 Board Member, visited Lawrence Education Center in order to participate in SEWING workshops offered by the Learn & Serve America grant. S.E.W.I .N.G. (Sewing Encourages Wonder, Intelligence, Nurture & Giving) workshops are made available to students by a collaborative Learn & Serve America grant which is provided by the Illinois State Board of Education.
The students appreciated Mrs. Funderburg's involvement with them, and they had a great time showing her the projects that they were working on. She appeared to really enjoy being involved with the students at a grass-roots level. Kudos to Mrs. Funderburg for taking time from her busy day to spend time with the students.
