Jessica Hayes latest HTT winner

Jessica Hayes, science teacher at Elizabethton High School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.

Hayes applied for the grant to help cover the cost for students competing in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Science Bowl. While at the Science Bowl, students will participate in the competition, attend a dinner and meet scientists that work in and around the lab.

“Besides the competition, students will get a learning experience,” Hayes said. “It is an enriching experience.”
