Edmond district receives anti-bullying grant
The $50,000 grant will be used for a program called Rachel's Challenge
“It's going to work best at the high school level even though it has been fabulous at the middle school, and honestly has a lot of elements that work at the elementary level as well,” Brown said.
Tiffani Bruton, spokeswoman for Cox, said the employee foundation was started in 2005 and typically spends $1,000 to $10,000 annually on local schools.
Edmond was chosen from 170 applicants, she said.
“It came down to a lot of discussion in what was the best, and Rachel's Challenge, in terms of impact — we are going to have the ability, through this program, to save lives,” she said.
