LILLY LINDSEY works on a dental technology project as part of Sweet Home High School's health occupations class last year.

Sweet Home High School teachers won two microgrants at the end of 2020 to support projects that reduce barriers to education in STEM and career and technical education.

The grants were provided by Mid-Valley STEM-CTE Hub for local educators and non-profits in Linn and Benton counties to invest in equitable education.

"With ample evidence that COVID-19 is widening the existing systemic education and inequality gaps, our aim is to partner with educators and local non-profits to develop projects that reduce barriers and support students," wrote Director Sarah Whiteside in a press release.
