Dow awards more than $12,000 to local schools

"The projects chosen are innovative and outstanding. We are proud to be able to support these educators as they work to build student interest in science and math."St Charles parish teachers and schools receiving the grants include: Roseann Jarrell, Allemands Elementary; Kristen Weber and Jessica Fletcher, Lakewood Elementary; Craig Howat, Luling Elementary; Stephanie Chapman and Becky Barnes, R.K.
