Unum presented 52 Hamilton County school teachers with more than $50,000 in mini-grants.
It's part of a multi-year partnership between Unum and the Hamilton County Department of Education.
The grants will help pay for education materials and programs that engage students and improve their achievement levels.
One of those grants goes to Jennifer Brownlee of Red Bank Elementary School.
Jennifer is a literacy coach who created the program Growing Families through Literacy.
The goal of the program to provide support outside of the classroom for students.
The grant from Unum will be used to purchase books for the students to use at evening book clubs hosted by their teachers.
Families are welcome to join the club.
