Classroom gets grant for furniture

HEYWORTH — Anna Hanrahan's third-grade classroom got some unexpected visitors last week and the students will receive some much-needed upgrades because of it.

Hanrahan's class was selected to receive a $1,000 "One Class at a Time" grant from Peoria television station WHOI. The grant is part of the station's "Kids Count" program.

WHOI and CEFCU award $1,000 grants bi-weekly to central Illinois classrooms in a 10-county area that includes McLean County.

Hanrahan applied for the grant almost a year ago. The application asks for an essay of 250 words or less that explains "how the grant would further students' educational advancements and what it would mean to the class if selected."

Hanrahan said the grant is being used to purchase tables and chairs.
