Education Foundation teams with area business
to fund media grant at Falcon Pass Elementary School

Adults from L to R: Carrie Taylor with Griffin Communications Group, Falcon Pass teachers Veronica Walker, Debbie Adams and Mindy Ybarra, 2010 Foundation Board Chair Lisa Holbrook and foundation executive director Doug Frazior along with the cast and crew of FPE TV Ch. 9. League City, Texas – The Clear Creek Education Foundation is seeking community leaders and businesses interested in reading and funding Teacher Innovative Grant applications.  Should any businesses or community members fund a grant via a tax deductible donation, they would be invited to present the grant recipient with a special check during the foundation’s Surprize Patrol. One such grant funded last year was Falcon Pass Elementary's FPE TV Channel 9 which was graciously funded by Griffin Communications Group.

Representatives of Griffin Communications Group and the foundation were able to witness firsthand the grant's impact on the students who participate in this after school activity. The group is led by teachers Veronica Walker, Mindy Ybarra and Debbie Adams. Funds from the grant were used to purchase audio-visual equipment that students use to produce the morning announcements in the format of a newscast complete with writers, camera operators and news anchors. The newscast airs on televisions throughout the school on channel 9.
