Centennial Education Foundation (CEF) announced it awarded two grants to boost

a grant from the W. Atlee Burpee Foundation for 10,650 dollars for an
environmental program at Willow Dale Elementary School. The CEF has awarded
approximately 400,000 dollars in grants since the organization’s founding in

provide programs that promote enriched activities for our students and to be a
part of the EITC program,” said Robert Phillips, President of the CEF.
