The Judy Dudley Memorial GIFT (Giving to First-time Teachers) Grant is awarded to AISD employees who are teaching for the first time. Grant funds are for additional classroom materials to enhance those provided by the school district. Judy was a teacher at Fannin Elementary who loved her students and understood the importance of creating an inviting classroom for children to learn and grow. GIFT Grants are funded by Mike Dudley and The Martha Scott Carlson Endowment Fund held at Community Foundation of Abilene. Martha Scott Carlson, a retired teacher, provided the first donation to begin the GIFT Grant Program.

Thanks for supporting the students and teachers of AISD!
