Teacher Grants

The Tuscaloosa City Schools and the Tuscaloosa County Schools were both represented recently with the presentation of grants for classroom teachers.  In the past 5 years the CFWA has given $1 million to education in the form of teacher grants, scholarships, gifts to higher ed, etc.  We are very thankful for our classroom teachers.

Druid City Garden Project


The CFWA has partnered with the Druid City Garden Project several times to bring this wonderful experience to some of our local elementary schools.  Here is a picture of the students from Cresmont Elementary in Northport receiving instruction prior to harvesting and preparing their vegetables.

Wilford Calhoun demonstrates making cedar shingles with old tools for the 4th grade students in Northport Elementary schools.  The students were able to visit many stations and learn about the way of life of their ancestors.  The project was partially funded by the CFWA.
