Madison Elementary School is awarded a $4,000 Think Green Grant,
as part of the effort by Waste Management West Virginia and Keep America Beautiful for an educational garden.
Waste Management improves community environments through education, recycling, clean-ups and beautification programs.
WMWV Public Affairs Coordinator Amanda Marks-Cunningham says Madison Elementary is one of 20 nationwide recipients of this grant, so it's a big honor.
"It's always good to get outside, be in the sunlight, be in nature...learn about the surroundings that you live in and learn how you can keep our communities green and thriving," she says.
She says over the years repairs to the roof of the school damaged the site.
So it's a prime opportunity to give back to the community and let them restore this space with the grant money.
