Dr. Vicky Karol, Director of Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement, oversees the work of the Foundation. Her goal for the Foundation, she said, is to provide a permanent source of supplemental funding for Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) through donations and community involvement. The resources will be allocated for innovative educational programs that foster creative approaches to teaching and learning. Among other initiatives, teachers will be able to apply to the Foundation for mini-grants for classroom projects. Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “The Foundation has been a goal of mine for a while, and I knew Dr. Karol was the right person to get this off the ground. Thanks to her and to the fine folks at Community Bank of the Chesapeake.”
