$2,000 award will go toward improving middle school library.
A dozen Solano County music teachers have received a total of $20,800 in music grants made available this year by Donald and Rose Marie Wong through their endowment fund at Solano Community Foundation, said Stephanie Wolf, the foundation’s chief executive officer.
Among the recipients is Glenn Walp, who teaches music at Benicia Middle School and who has received several grants from Solano Community Foundation through its Education Plus! Mini-Grant Program.
Walp received $2,000 to improve the school’s music library, Wolf said.
The largest grant, $2,800, was awarded to Kristen Goree, for a vocal ensemble at Buckingham Charter Magnet High School in Vacaville.
