Lowe's grant to Elba teacher

Phillip Smith, science teacher at Elba High School, recently was awarded a $5,000 grant from Lowe’s to renovate his classroom. Smith said he plans to bring it up-to-date with flat screen TV’s, Chromebooks, flexible seating, and a fresh coat of paint. When students return in the Fall they will walk into a modernized classroom setting just right for an educational experience in science. Smith and Elba City Schools are very appreciative of Lowe’s for its commitment to schools and education!
