Atlanta, GA-Multi-awarded Filipino-American teacher Dr. Joel Aquino received a $500 grant to conduct a pilot Science workshop in early June for high school teachers in Mindanao.  The grant award is to support Aquino's initiative in bringing valuable educational volunteer service to benefit the Indigenous Cultural Communities (ICCs) in Mindanao in line with the foundation's Library Development and Educational Resource Assistance program.  The grant was made possible through the generosity of Cross of Life Lutheran Church, Galing Foundation friends and Combined Federal Campaign donors

Aquino teaches cross disciplines in Physics, Physical Science, Earth Systems and Geology in high school, college and graduate-level programs.  He teaches at Hall County Schools/University of North GA/Piedmont College and has received local, state and national awards. 

The workshop in Mindanao will be a project hosted in partnership with the Provincial Government of Sarangani thru the Sulong Karunungan Program of Governor Steve Solon, the Schools Division of Sarangani Province and Galing Foundation, Inc. Mindanao Outreach.
