Woodward Career Technical High School was awarded a $101,500 grant from Impact 100 for its transformative project, Constructing a Pathway Out of Poverty, which helps students in grades 7 and 8 apply math skills to construction principles. Focusing on its middle-school academies, Woodward’s program will help prepare students for success in its celebrated Construction Technologies career pathway for high school students.

“We are excited about this program, as it allows us to collaborate with the Greater Cincinnati Construction Foundation and Allied Construction Industries to expand our contextual teaching of mathematics,” said Shauna Murphy, principal of Woodward. “We’re giving our students a chance to master mathematics by applying it to skills they’re really excited about. In the end, they’ll be better positioned for success.”
