Lauren Meier latest HTT winner

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

Meier applied for the Helping Teachers Teach grant to help cover the cost for health science students to attend the Skills USA National Convention this month.

“This convention will help students to connect what they have learned in the classroom to the health science industry,” Meier said. “They will have opportunities to not only compete and showcase what amazing students we have, but also to network with other students and industry leaders throughout the nation.”

Northeast Community Credit Union awards $300 every month to a classroom to be utilized for classroom needs, classroom activities, and academic enrichment.  Helping Teachers Teach is open to teachers within Carter, Johnson, Unicoi, Sullivan and Washington counties who are members of Northeast Community Credit Union. Area teachers may become members online or at any NCCU location and can download the grant application on the credit union’s website:  www.BeMyCU.org.
