Posted by Community Relations on 9/10/2015

The South Mountain Reading department received a $5000 grant through the Donate to Educate program from the Arizona Cardinals and University of Phoenix. Reading teacher Evan Tiras applied for the grant, and has ordered $4,000 worth of novels for four classrooms, and $1,000 in 3E-books to update their Nook Library. South’s classroom libraries will grow over 430 books.

The University of Phoenix has invited Tiras and a guest to next Sunday’s Arizona Cardinals against the New Orleans Saints, where a group of grant recipients will take part in a pre-game ceremony to recognize the recipients.
