Elina Vasquez of the Marybelle McCorkle Academy of Excellence requested headphones with microphones so her students could listen to, and write their own folktales. The Rincon Rotary was pleased to help with this project through it's Rotary LOCAL program. Rotarians Dave Rickert and Jack Heald made the delivery, and Marybelle McCorkle herself was in attendance when the grant was presented.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary Local Program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary Local can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
