Two DeSoto County Schools Receive MRC Grants

MRC Grants

Congratulations to Overpark Elementary and Walls Elementary! These schools were both awarded grants by the Mississippi Recycling Coalition (MRC). The MRC offers $10,000 in grants annually to schools across the state to assist recycling efforts.

Yesterday, Supervisor Jessie Medlin presented a $1,000 award from MRC to Ms. Kinggard and Ms. Cook at Overpark Elementary. The teachers will use the grant funds to teach their Spotlight class about composting and to grow a garden. Then, today, Supervisor Bill Russell visited Walls Elementary to present a $500 check from MRC to Ms. Carrie Lee. She will be using the grant funds to begin promoting a recycling program at the school through her Spotlight class.
