District grant writer, Jeff Bennett said, “We are pleased to help Kinder Morgan Foundation further its mission in Cheatham County by providing the resources to strengthen student proficiencies in reading and language arts.”
Bennett said this funding would offset the cost of narrative writing curriculum for the Cheatham Achievers after school program. “One of our goals in Cheatham Achievers is to enrich student achievement in reading and language arts. This narrative writing curriculum will be a fun way for students to develop critical thinking skills and build personal confidence.”
According to program organizers, the narrative writing project will guide students through the process of authoring her/his own storybook. Upon completion, students will receive a soft-cover, published copy of their individually authored book.
Kinder Morgan Foundation funds programs that promote the academic and artistic interests of young people in the many cities and towns across North America where Kinder Morgan operates.
In 2013, the Kinder Morgan Foundation donated more than $1 million to youth programs.
