A recent AFA grant recipient was recognized in her local paper last month for her hard work and dedication to advancing the educational experiences of her students. Teacher Carla Woodward chose to spend the money on a high-tech device that would help give her students hands-on learning. The Gen. Brian K. Holloway Chapter 367 of AFA was able to present Woodard with a check for $1,300 in person.
