Dr. Lianna Zhao and Vicki Harris attended the 2018 Innovative Grants Program Awards Reception on February 26, 2018. The Irvine Public Schools Foundation awards grants to elementary, middle and high school applicants for projects crafted to enhance learning skills, critical thinking skills, leadership and communication and cultural skills to name a few. Many very worthy projects are submitted and it is a difficult task to determine the winners.
The Exchange Club of Irvine participates in the selection of one project and provides a grant of $1,200 towards the implementation of the program. This year the club voted on an initiative from Rancho San Joaquin Middle School "Be Nice to People."
It is an annual honor for the Exchange Club of Irvine to participate in this grant program with the IPSF.
