NJH JAG students receive Weyerhaeuser grant

Natchitoches Junior High School JAG received a $2500.00 grant from the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund to support with the costs associated with for various projects such the Pennies for Patients Program, The Kindness Rock Project, Stem Program, and incentive rewards for students’ academic accomplishments. We are slated to attend the education in motion program in Hot Springs, Arkansas. The education in motion program (STEM) provides students with a greater understanding of the basics of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a fun and interactive setting. 

In both rural and urban settings, the Weyerhaeuser Giving Fund supports hundreds of important organizations and programs in the communities where they operate with funding, time, expertise and resources. Weyerhaeuser made its first charitable donation in 1903 and has provided more than $260 million in grants through its formal giving program, which was established in 1948.
