NHTC recently presented four Northern Alabama elementary schools each with a $2,500 technology grant to be used to assist the schools with technology needs.
Schools that received the donation include: KDS DAR Elementary School in Grant, Alabama (Marshall County); Goldsmith-Schiffman Elementary School in Owens Cross Roads/Hampton Cove, Alabama (Huntsville City); New Hope Elementary School in New Hope, Alabama (Madison County), and Owens Cross Roads Elementary School in Owens Cross Roads, Alabama (Madison County).
NHTC was founded by the community more than seventy years ago and is strongly invested in the communities served. In addition to these technology grants, NHTC annually offers $3,000 in academic scholarships and $15,000 for high school athletic sponsorships, as well as many events and sponsorships that are supported throughout the year.
NHTC wanted to give back to the community and what better way to give back than to help one of the foundational pillars of local communities – the elementary schools. “Elementary schools are the foundation of our children’s education, and I can’t think of a better place to invest in our communities’ future”, says Daniel Martin, NHTC General Manager.
In attendance were NHTC Board President, Garland Elders; NHTC General Manager, Daniel Martin; NHTC Marketing Manager, Christy Barecky; and administration from each school.
