The Newspapers in Education Program of The Herald-News was a recent recipient of funds from the Middle Tennessee Natural Gas Project Hometown Help Program. The funds will be used to provide copies of The Herald News to Rhea County, Dayton City and Adult Education classrooms which will be used in learning activities.
Project Hometown Help is funded by the customers of Middle Tennessee Natural Gas who allow the utility to round their bill up to the next dollar. The money collected in this fashion is distributed to local organizations and charities. These customers have given more than $1,600,000 to their communities since 2005.
The NIE Program helps teachers discover interactive ways to use the daily newspaper as an effective and timely teaching tool in their classrooms.
