GHS Art Teacher Wins Little BIG Ideas Grant

Congratulations to GHS Art Teacher Betsy Poling, who was recently awarded a Little BIG Ideas Grant through Vibrant Communities of Elkhart County. The grant, worth $1,000, will allow Betsy to build and install four Little Free Libraries somewhere in the city of Goshen.

Betsy had been thinking about the idea of the Little Free Libraries, and after she heard about the grant opportunity, she decided to fill out the application. Her creative way to reach others in her town caught the eye of the grant committee, and Betsy will soon be making the Little Libraries a reality!
