ROXBURY, NJ - A $1,000 grant awarded to Roxbury's Eisenhower Middle School (EMS) will be used to buy some excersise and archery equipment, said school officials.

EMS Health and Physical Education Teacher Joe Gangemi recently accepted the $1,000 award on behalf of California Casualty. The company has partnered with education associations for more than 65 years.
The California Casualty Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant was established to provide support to public middle and high schools sports programs negatively impacted by reduced

“Joe submitted for the $1,000 scholarship with Bonnie Harper, a California Casualty insurance representative who comes twice a year to the school to offer different types of insurance and encourages teachers to apply as they give out grants for schools they work with,” said EMS Principal Elizabeth Omegna.

Gangemi said the money will help him “enhance and add exercise equipment" to the EMS Physical Education Department's fitness center. "We will also try and purchase more archery equipment to enhance our new archery program here at EMS,” he said.

Awards must be used to help subsidize school sports programs in ways such as purchasing new equipment or paying for competition travel costs. The grant cannot be used for individual student awards.
