Frances Ohanenye Attends the Reception for Winning Imagination Grant


The drummers welcomed grant winners into the Education Support Complex (ESC) building.

May 18, 2015, was quite memorable. I won a Katy ISD Imagination Grant titled “Fearless Readers of Life-changing Novels” and was honored last night with the other grant winners.

During the event last night, I was honored to meet the board members and be among several students and teachers who were recognized for amazing feats and outstanding academic achievements.

The day I found out I won the grant! The committee surprised me in the Computer Lab where I was working with students. Apparently, they had gone to my classroom, and finding the notice I left on my door that we are in the lab, they came to the lab with the principal and surprised me. Needless to say, I was pleasantly shocked.

Congratulations to Today’s Grant Recipients
