Jordan Brand, a division of NIKE, Inc. announced that the Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program has honored close to 100 educators nationwide for their outstanding achievements and contributions in the classroom. This year, the Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program has awarded $1 million in total grants for the 2009-2010 school year to aid middle and high school teachers working in underserved communities. These grants provide the resources necessary for instructional creativity and enhance curriculum development.

“We are proud to recognize our nation's educators and their commitment to outstanding teaching through our Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program,” says Howard White, Jordan Brand Vice President. “The opportunities our grant recipients provide to their students help foster students' drive for personal excellence both in and out of the classroom and pave the way for a lifetime of success.”

The Jordan Fundamentals Grant Program acknowledges and provides financial support to teachers who endeavor to overcome challenges and limited resources in order to achieve excellence through instructional creativity, innovative teaching and high learning expectations for students. Since 1999, the Jordan Fundamentals program has presented more than $10 million in financial aid to public secondary school teachers where at least 50 percent of the student body population is eligible for the free or reduced lunch program.

“The grants awarded through Jordan Fundamentals give teachers the support to try new and innovative ideas in the classroom,” said Jennifer Stimpson of Dallas' Yvonne A. Ewell Townview Magnet Center and 2009-2010 Jordan Fundamentals grant recipient. “These grants inspire educators to motivate students to pursue academic excellence by providing access to important resources that previously may not have been available.”
