From press release:

Putnam County, Tenn. – Three Putnam County schools have each received a grant from Utrust in recognition of Dawn Fry, a Putnam County School Board member, for her service on the Utrust Board of Trustees.  The Utrust Trustee Choice Program allows Fry to award $4,000 in projects of her choosing.

Cookeville High School received $2,000 to support its culinary arts program headed by Tiffany Zellner. Upperman High School and Monterey High School each received $1,000 to support their Dietetics and Nutrition Programs directed by Taylor Kee and Hollie Childress.

Fry said, “I love having the opportunity to help these excellent nutrition programs in our high schools. I want every school program to be the best that it can be.  That’s why I’m on the Putnam County School Board.  I also enjoy serving on the Utrust Board of Trustees. They help the schools and students they serve in so many ways.”

Putnam County Superintendent, Corby King, added, “We are grateful to Utrust and especially to Dawn Fry for bringing additional funds to our school district.  We use every such dollar we receive to enrich programs and provide more opportunities to our students. Dawn continues to be dedicated to making our schools better places to work and learn, and these grants move us in that direction.”
