Featured Grant Recipient: Glen Edwards Middle School
Cake Decorating, Sugar Work, is offered at Glen Edwards Middle School. It’s an after school extracurricular activity which teaches students how to decorate cakes and cupcakes using fondant. Beginners and advanced students meet once a week on Mondays and Tuesdays.
This year they have been focusing on giving to the community by making toppers for fundraising activities, such as the Art Gallery Student exhibits, LHS Trap Shooting and the LCF Bingo Fundraiser.
The program is funded by grants and does not cost the student any money. Sruti Vadgama, the sugar work instructor, says: "I wanted to offer an opportunity to students where they can learn a skill and later on they can be passionate about and may use it as a potential source of income. I didn’t want any financial restrictions to be an obstacle hence it’s a non-profit, grant-funded after school activity."
