    Teammates Grant

    This was in today's Garthbox...thanks Ziggy.

    Grant writing down to an art

    By: Phil Brown, Staff Writer
    October 21, 2002

    Enid teacher's skill benefits students, others.

    Thanks to Gretchen Lade and her students at Enid High School, hundreds of hospitalized children throughout the world, as well as hundreds of U.S. veterans, have received greeting cards made by her art class.

    Lade teaches art, math and English to disabled students at EHS. And, as it is with many classrooms, there never seems to be enough money available to do the really special projects that benefit both students and people outside the school.

    But the lack of funds has not been much of a deterrent to Lade and her class. In just a short time, she has obtained more than $7,000 in cash and equipment through grants she has written, along with a fundraiser she conducted with the help of Enid High School Alumni Association.

    *clipped*

    Her largest single cash grant came from the Garth Brooks Foundation. It was for $2,000.

    So, again. I want to be clear about this: Teammates for Kids and The Garth Brooks Foundation are actually the same organization?
