In November, Mr. Campbell and Ms. Carmichael, the supervising teachers of the BlueXpress, applied for a grant from FCEF and received more than $1500.
The duo were most concerned about having adequate equipment for the expanded On Location Broadcasting segment. They made a list of necessary items, the cost of which came up to about $2500. Though they did not receive their full amount, Mr. Campbell and Ms. Carmichael are very thankful to FCEF, or Frederick County Educational Foundation, for the total award of $1523.27. Mr. Campbell described the foundation as a very important organization that provides money for school projects that the county cannot.
