Scott County Community Foundation board member Ryan Payne presents a check for $85 to Austin Elementary School teacher Leslie Fox. The grant was awarded from the Gladys A. Berna Education Fund at the Community Foundation, and will be used for a “Lava Lamps and Volcanoes” project. Students will get to do hands-on experiments in their STEM classes.

The Gladys A. Berna Education Fund was established to honor the legacy of “Miss Gladys,” who taught in Scott County for 38 years. To donate to the Gladys A. Berna Education Fund, you may mail your tax-deductible contribution to the Scott County Community Foundation at PO Box 25; Scottsburg, IN 47170. You may also stop in the office at 60 N.
