The Polk Education Foundation would like to the honor the Progress Energy Science Grant school recipients for the 2012-2013 school year. These schools, all located in the Progress Energy service area, were recognized at the 2012 Progress Energy Science grant reception held on Nov. 13 at the First Baptist Church of Lake Wales. Each selected school received up to $3,000 to purchase science materials to enhance energy-based curriculum and increase student achievement on state standardized tests. This grant program, now in its seventh year, is sponsored by Progress Energy and is administered by the Polk Education Foundation. It has returned over $220,000 to the classrooms of the Progress Energy service area. As a result of Progress Energy’s commitment to education, these schools are making great strides to increase students’ scores and enrich the learning process in grades Kindergarten through 12th.
