Thousands of dollars have been donated to two local school districts to help improve science, technology, engineering and math education. The Sesser-Valier School district has received a $10,000 grant while Galatia High School was awarded $25,000. The grants were given through the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Program. The districts were nominated by the Southern Illinois Farmers and then teachers developed their submissions for the grant based on what their schools needed.
