Some good news heading to North Vermillion schools, a $50,000 dollar grant was awarded through the International Paper Newport Mill. The money is going towards building a greenhouse, something that would be considered a first for schools in the county.

"It's one of the main reasons why we wanted to support this because we are in a rural community and this is a farming community, This is an agriculture community and so if we can help give back to what the community truly is all about then that's what we want to do," said Newport Mill Communication Specialist, Danielle Verhaak.

Each year... International Paper gives millions of dollars towards grants. This year, they're introducing a new grant called 'Capital Campaign.' It's a multi-year grant used for projects. Over 2 years, $25,000 dollars will be given in increments, totaling a $50,000 dollar grant.
