Nearly 400 Los Angeles County teachers received $279,000 in grant money to promote history and social science education in K-12 classrooms.
The grant, sponsored by Azusa Pacific University, Canyon City Foundation, Helen and Will Webster Foundation, and the Los Angeles County Office of Education, was part of Keeping History Alive, a program advocating for the advancement of history curriculum in classrooms.
Azusa Pacific University will host a program and reception for the 390 recipients Saturday, Feb. 9 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the Upper Turner Campus Center, 901 E. Alosta Ave. in Azusa.
KHA has awarded $1,065,241 in grants since 2004, when APU history professor Thomas Andrews founded the program. The grants range from $250 to $850 each to fund classroom activities, resources, field trips, presentations and professional development.
