PAMS grant

PAMS Coach Michelle Tureau, student Michael Johnson, former Port Allen Mayor Lynn Robertson, student Jarius Wright and Jeff Howard, ExxonMobil Port Allen Lubricants Plant Operations Manager, view equipment purchased with a grant from the WBR Foundation for Academic Excellence.

The West Baton Rouge Foundation for Academic Excellence granted WBR Schools $17,415 for the 2018-19 school year. Recently, PAMS used some funds to purchase audio and video equipment for Port Allen Middle School. 

The foundation annually awards competitive grants to full-time classroom teachers in WBR public schools to use for academic projects. 

Since 2011, the WBR Foundation for Academic Excellence has awarded teachers $480,996, funding 371 projects.

Grants are made possible through the financial support of individual and business partners and an annual spring golf tournament.
