Geneva Co. School Grant

This week, one of the most cash strapped school districts in the state received good news from Montgomery.

Geneva County Schools Superintend, David Snell, has gotten word that Geneva County is in line for a little more than $59,000.

The money comes from an account set up by governor riley to help the state's poorer counties with infrastructure needs.

Snell oversees a total of six schools in Slocomb, Hartford, and Samson.

He's not sure how the funds will be spent at this time.

“This is intent by the governors’ office to help Geneva County and other financially strapped counties. This is really a great thing for us,” said Snell.

Before the $59,000 can be allocated locally, the State Department of Education must first approve the plan.
