Now Accepting A.O. Smith Teacher Grant Applications

If you're a teacher who works for the Cheatham County School District, you're eligible to apply for an A.O. Smith Teacher Grant of up to $500 for the 2015-16 school year. Grant applications are due by 2 p.m. on Monday, July 20, and grant recipients will be announced in early August. Please be sure to complete the application in its original format. All award recipients are required to submit a project summary within 30 days of the completion of the work proposed in the grant.

During the 2014-15 grant cycle, we awarded over $13,000 to deserving Cheatham County teachers thanks to the generosity of our county's largest employer, A.O. Smith.
