Fifty-nine Hamilton County teachers were awarded more than $52,000 in grants as part of Unum's Strong Schools Grants program.
Each year, the grants are given to teachers who demonstrate effective and creative ways to engage students and improve their learning and achievement levels. The teachers received the grants during a recognition luncheon at Unum.
Tom White and Steve Zabel of Unum joined Supt. Rick Smith to present the checks.
"It's one of the most unique programs we have, thanks to Unum, and we're very appreciative of that," Supt. Smith said.
Unum has sponsored the program since 2009. The 52 teachers represent 33 Hamilton County schools.
