FAIRFIELD, Ala. (WIAT) — A P.E. teacher in Fairfield has scored a big win.
He just received a $1,000 One Class at a Time Grant.
Anthony Sanders is the P.E. teacher at C.J. Donald Elementary School. He says that what the students learn now, can lead to lifelong fitness.
“Because lifelong fitness makes lifelong learners. Find something you enjoy early, like a sport or something… you play it the rest of your life and it gives you goals to stay healthy,” Sanders said.
However, Sanders said keeping these energetic students in sports gear can be expensive, so he applied for the One Class at a Time Grant with eCo Credit Union. With the grant, he will be able to byt new basketballs for the students and get new sports equipment.
