"We are privileged to work with many outstanding teachers through our Bright Ideas education grant program. Amy Rae Foss consistently goes above and beyond to make a difference for her students," said Monica Speight, Communications Specialist for Edgecombe-Martin EMC. "It is an honor to recognize her for her hard work and to be able to thank her for the positive contribution she makes in our community."
