Completed Project of the REPM -The Pine Belt Area
“The whole is greater than the sum of its parts!” Aristotle said so more than two thousand years ago; however, the Retired Education Personnel of Mississippi (REPM), from the Pine Belt area, demonstrated the power of the quote through a collaborative quilt creation.

To apply for the REPM grant, a teacher shall describe the project for which they are seeking funds. The applicant should describe how the students will benefit from the project and how the teacher will measure their progress or success.
