Four local teachers awarded grants for classroom projects that help students understand vital role of water in community

Four teachers across Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s (EVMWD) service area have been awarded grants for classroom projects that help students understand the vital role of water in the community.

The 2022 winners include Elda Conaway, William Collier Elementary School; Jennifer Hamm, Railroad Canyon Elementary School; Kevin Mobley, Elsinore High School; and Natalie Boggs, Shivela Middle School/Murrieta Mesa High School Collaboration

The Lois B. Krieger Water Project Grants for Educators, provided through Western Municipal Water District, help teachers incorporate hands-on water education into their curriculum.

The program is named after Lois Krieger, a local water pioneer who served on the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board of Directors for 25 years. She served as the first female chairperson of Metropolitan and first female President of the Association of California Water Agencies.

“Lois Krieger left a legacy that continues today,” EVMWD President Darcy Burke said. “Hands-on water education grants provide local students an increased understanding of water, its importance and empowers them to become exceptional water resource stewards. Through this program, EVMWD proudly continues honoring this long-time legacy and the woman that started it all.”

The latest grant-funded projects include several gardening ventures, irrigation improvements, and composting materials to reduce food waste at a school-wide level.
