Princeton City School District Wins the Scripps Howard Foundation Grant and is Awarded $100,000.
Princeton City Schools was named the winner of the $100,000 grant for its advancement of the Thomas S. Woods-Tucker Mobile Book Center. The Mobile Book Center will afford children the opportunity to learn all year around.
A few years ago staff started to volunteer their time during the summer to bring books to our neighborhoods. They loaded their trunks with crates of books and went out into the community, it was a big success.
The mobile book center will mitigate summer reading loss in families impacted by poverty and language barriers and bring learning to more neighborhoods throughout the District.
Associate Superintendent Tom Burton accepted the award during a live streaming of the Scripps Howard Awards on Wednesday evening.
A special Thank you to Amy Price, Tricia Roddy and Tom Burton.
