The White House Area Chamber of Commerce’s Education Initiative is a directive that exists to encourage, promote, and support innovative and creative education opportunities and to enhance workforce development within the school systems in the White House Area. Part of this directive is our newly created Educator Innovation and Enhancement Grants that are awarded each year to White House Area K-12 public or private school teachers to use for special projects in their classrooms or school sponsored clubs. Annually, the White House Area Chamber of Commerce conducts the Discover White House Expo Silent Auction, proceeds from this event are earmarked to fund our Educator Grants and student scholarships.
