For the second year in a row, the Murrells Inlet Elks’ Lodge #2797 awarded the Robotics Team of The Georgetown School with a $1500 Anniversary Grant from the Elks National Foundation. 

Secretary Larry Cook, CEO David Dailey, grants coordinator Bill Carman, and Exalted Ruler Dave Hanson of Elks’ Lodge #2797 presented the check to the Angry Nerds in a short ceremony on February 13.  “We saw a need and wanted to help out,” said Secretary Cook as he handed over the check to Lane Crosby, sponsor of the team.  As the students and faculty applauded, Crosby expressed her deep appreciation.  “This grant means so much in a small school like ours,” she said.  “I don’t know how we could have participated in First Lego League without the support of the Elks.”

The Elks grant will be used to buy equipment and pay for competitions.  Go Nerds!
