YUKON – Marti Brown feels as though she’s just been granted a wish.
She opened an email a few days ago to discover that Project SEARCH, the program she directs for students with significant disabilities at Canadian Valley Technology Center, has received a $15,000 federal Carl Perkins Disability Services Project grant.
The funds are earmarked for the purchase and equipping of an accessible van for student transportation.
“I was amazed,” Brown said. “I’m never speechless, but we’re incredibly excited about it.”
