KISD: Hudson Foundation Funds 19 Transformational Campus Projects

KISD: Hudson Foundation Funds 19 Transformational Campus Projects

The M.R. and Evelyn Hudson Foundation has awarded $60,000 to fund 19 different transformational projects across Keller ISD.

The Keller ISD-Hudson Transformation Projects program returned for 2019 looking for projects that would have a positive impact on KISD schools. After receiving more than 130 applications for project funding, employees had the opportunity to cast votes for their favorite projects. Those voting results, combined with input from educators across the country, provided the selection committee with insight to select this year’s winners.
