Matt Wilson, English and speech teacher at Happy Valley High School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teacher’s Teach grant winner.
Wilson is using the grant to help pay the entry fees for the HVHS Warrior Troupe Speech & Debate team to the district speech/debate tournament in April.
“This club prepares students to be confident communicators at the college level and in future business careers,” Wilson said.
