NRA School Shield Program Awards Grants

posted on June 25, 2018

The NRA National School Shield program has earmarked a series of grants to help Carter County schools improve their security.

Several schools will each get money. Hampton Elementary School received $9,995; Hunter Elementary received $9,595; Unaka Elementary received $5,995; Happy Valley High received $4,010; Little Milligan Elementary received $3,200; and Unaka High received $3,000.

The money will help the schools purchase security cameras, reflective glass and other products, as needed. The school system has until May to buy and install the security devices.

School Shield funding comes primarily from the NRA Foundation, which holds banquets and auctions throughout the year to raise money to protect our Second Amendment right.
