The Krystal Foundation awarded a $2,500 grant to the Dickerson Middle School Orchestra program to promote science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). The school orchestra will use the funds to help integrate music and science.
The Krystal Foundation selected the orchestra for the award based on the application that the school submitted last fall outlining how the teachers planned to incorporate science and music in lesson plans.
Alice Crowder, a Krystal representative and Dickerson parent, presented the grant check to the school following a performance by the seventh grade orchestra.
Krystal also donated 250 combo meal coupons for the seventh grade orchestra students who performed.
