Congratulations to our most recent Lockwood Foundation Grant recipients! These grants, provided by funds which are so generously donated by the Lockwood Foundation, are one of the Foundation’s signature programs. Awarding these funds is one of the highlights of our year.

In May 2024, the BC Foundation awarded three worthy projects with $15,000 total in Lockwood Foundation BC Faculty Excellence and Innovation Grants. Please join us in congratulating the recipients.

Parent Education will expand the current and small DEI Library that will serve our students; parents and children, ages 0-7. The new books will focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion for the whole family, offering books for the adult reader and older children.

The funds provided with the Lockwood Grant will be used to continue the Counseling Center’s initiative to provide no-cost psychological assessments to students with suspected Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), ADHD, and ASD. Students who do not have insurance, other financial means to pay for such assessments, or who cannot utilize their health insurance will be given priority.
