Foundation Launches New Brand

We are pleased to share that the Foundation has recently completed a branding initiative to help us better tell our story to the community.  After more than 27 years in operation, we determined that it was critical to create simplified messaging and visual brand components to differentiate the Foundation and communicate our mission to support student success by joining together with the community.

We’re excited to share our new logo with you!

With our diverse and growing population, our students need ongoing support from this community. The Foundation believes that as a unified network of resources, together, we are joined to help all students succeed.

We will continue to utilize innovative partnerships and proven effective programs to connect students and teachers with the tools and opportunities they need to support students success.

CenturyLink Awards Teacher & Technology Grants

CenturyLink awarded almost $10,000 to the Foundation for two teachers.
Graciela Arnold at Winter Park High School received $4,627 for The Lyrical Miracle project serving students in grades 10-12. Learning vocabulary through song and context makes learning more meaningful and students are able to recall the words easier, thus building literacy. Funds are to purchase a MacBook that will allow her to make new and improved beats and videos to help with music creation for the classroom and iPad minis to help students review the vocabulary songs.
Allyson Prince at Wheatley Elementary School received $5,000 for the iPad iSucceed Enrichment Program targeting 3rd and 4th graders for enrichment in math, science and reading. Students will use STEM apps, design challenges, and write and publish books with iBooks, iAuthor or iPad Literacy Circle.
The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation’s Teachers and Technology grant program, which has been offered since 2008, awards grants to schools in CenturyLink’s local service areas on behalf of teachers who have developed specific plans to innovatively implement technology in their classrooms.
Across the country, more than 1,000 grant applications were received. In Florida, 96 teachers applied through their school district-wide education foundation, with 25 winning schools selected by a review committee comprised of community members and a CenturyLink representative.
