Alcorn County Educator Awarded Classroom Grant
Alison Wade, a 9th grade biology teacher at Kossuth High School, recently received a classroom grant from the Mississippi Professional Educators (MPE). A resident of Corinth, Alison has been a member of MPE since 2016. She plans to use her grant funding for a project entitled “Onion Cell Lab.” This project will allow students to use a microscope to study and identify the structures and functions of various cell types.
Founded in 1979, MPE is a statewide professional association with approximately 14,000 teachers, administrators and non-certified staff from kindergarten to graduate school level. Our top priority is the education and achievement of students.
