Tracie Shelton Powers latest HTT winner

Tracie Shelton Powers, English teacher at Hampton High School, is the latest Northeast Community Credit Union Helping Teachers Teach grant winner.

Powers applied for the grant to update the teacher workroom/lounge and meeting area. The revamped workspace will also be dedicated in honor of a long-time aide at HHS – a future surprise for that employee.

“Teachers put so much of their own money into their classrooms, their students, and their school,” Powers said. “This time, we are applying for this grant to fix our workroom/teacher’s lounge and lunch area. This is also a surprise for one of our aides. We want to honor her and all she’s done for the students, faculty and Hampton High through the years.”

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.
