West Point Public Schools band director Cindy Sellhorst was awarded the Helen Pouch Memorial Classroom Fund Grant for $500.

Sellhorst said being awarded this grant gave her access to resources beyond what would normally be in budget for students.

The grant, sponsored by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is awarded to one teacher per state, and is awarded to teachers that provide a detailed plan for what the money will be used for and how they will implement that project.
