The United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC) has been consistently supportive of the literacy needs of students throughout Mercer County for several years through a variety of initiatives. The organization has specifically had a strong impact at the Gregory School by partnering with the Center for Child & Family Achievement (CCFA) for the past four years.

Most recently UWGMC and CCFA teamed up to host a school wide door decorating contest in honor of Black History month. This contest inspired Trenton elementary students at the Gregory School to come up with designs for their respective classroom doors that would honor and celebrate Black History month.

Three winners were selected and each winner received a donation of 50 books for their classroom libraries courtesy of UWGMC and CCFA. Each student also was able to select a free book for their personal home libraries.

The winners included Ms. Gary and her second grade students , Ms. Cabel‘s second graders, and Ms. Spencer’s class. The winners are pictured below along with Ms. Wanda Stansberry, Executive Director of the Center for Child & Family Achievement.
