Washington Teacher Awarded Grant by Local Media

October 2, 2018 - Congratulations to Jonathan Freehling, Physical Education Teacher at Washington Middle School, on being selected as this month’s recipient of KBAK TV’s One Classroom at a Time grant.  Freehling was surprised during one of his classes by KBAK News and Weather Anchor, Aaron Perlman. 

Perlman, along with program sponsor, Mor Furniture for Less, presented a check to Freehling for $1,000. He plans to use the money to purchase heart rate monitors for students so they are able to track their endurance abilities and heart rate as well.
