The MSD of Martinsville is pleased to announce that our district has received a
$448,400 grant from Lilly Endowment Inc. for counseling initiatives in grades K-12.

The funding provided over the next four years will allow for an additional guidance counselor
and social worker to the MSD of Martinsville. In addition, the grant will enable a community
partnership between the MSD of Martinsville and the Barbara Jordan YMCA for programming
and facility access to students.

“We are so grateful to Lilly Endowment for their support through the counseling initiative,” said
Dr. Michele Moore, Superintendent, MSD of Martinsville. “We believe this will be the game
changer for our district as we continue to provide programming to support the socio-emotional
health of our students.”
