Harrison Public Schools Foundation Awards Grants


The Harrison Public Schools Foundation has awarded over 300 grants to teachers in every HPS campus since its origination in 1998.  These grants, designed to improve educational opportunities for students, have totaled over $350,000.00.  Educators annually write project proposals which are submitted to the foundation committee for consideration.
