The Life Skills program at Smithfield-Selma High School has received a $2,500 grant from the Walmart Foundation.

The grant will help SSS continue MidWeek Munch, in which the Life Skills program serves lunch to faculty and staff.

“After seven years of support from the tremendous Spartan family for the MidWeek Munch project, it is motivating to have further support from the local community,” said Life Skills teacher Bethany Jones, who wrote the grant proposal.

She thanked the Walmart Foundation for its support.

Trudy Farnell teaches history at SSS. “I love MidWeek Munch because of what it represents to our school, a commitment to teach all of the children who come our way,” she said. “This program of preparing meals for the faculty and staff gives all of us an opportunity to be with students with whom we have little interaction otherwise. The students in our Life Skills program and the wonderful faculty and staff who serve them are one of the many reasons why I’m proud to be a Spartan.”
