FAQS
QEF Thoughts

Amory has always enjoyed a reputation for having outstanding schools, but we cannot be content with accomplishments of the past. Our students must be ready to meet the challenges of a global society.

With your help, we will continue to accomplish our mission by raising private funds and giving teachers access to those funds through our “Grants to Teachers” program. This is often the only way a teacher can get the extra funds needed to make a real difference in the classroom.

Mrs. Dee Allison
President and Retired Educator

“Our annual ‘Grants to Teachers’ program allows teachers to apply for funds that address the extra needs, projects and programs of their classroom when no other monies are available.”

“Community involvement is a key ingredient in the comprehensive education of our young people, and the quality of that education has a direct impact on the present and future economic development of our community.”
