Handy Mart and H.N. Funkhouser & Co. today presented each of Frederick County’s 21 public schools with a $500 grant to support math and science programs. The grants, which total $10,500, are the result of a partnership between H.N. Funkhouser & Company and the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance. This is the 20th consecutive year that H.N. Funkhouser & Company has provided the grants to support Frederick County Public Schools.

Schools Superintendent David Sovine says, “Community partnerships are critically important to our schools. We are very appreciative of the commitment H.N. Funkhouser & Co. has made to Frederick County Public Schools for two decades. Cultivating strategic, purposeful partnerships with community members, organizations, businesses and families is one of the primary goals in our strategic plan Inspire 2025: A Promise for Progress. The partnership we enjoy with H.N. Funkhouser & Co. exemplifies how such partnerships can benefit our students and help enable us to provide them with meaningful, authentic learning experiences.”

Since 2001-02 when H.N. Funkhouser & Co. began working to secure grants through the ExxonMobil Educational Alliance to benefit Frederick County Public Schools, contributions totaling $184,000 have been made to support math and science instruction.

H.N. Funkhouser & Co. Vice President Rieman Claytor Royston says, “We are honored and privileged to be able to continue supporting Frederick County Public Schools. We take great pride in supporting our community’s children through these grants, particularly during a time that has been so challenging for teachers, students, schools and parents.”
