Students feel like "real scientists" while using microscopes Willard City Schools purchased through a Fisher-Titus Medical Center grant, curriculum director Laurie Czaplicki told local school leaders during a luncheon.

Czaplicki was one of several administrators present during the annual luncheon. Each year during the event, educators request grant money from the hospital to implement health and science related programs in their district.

Former Norwalk City Schools Superintendent Virginia Poling said throughout the grant program's 18 years, FTMC has given out more than $741,000 in grants to the schools. "We hope this program may spark interest in our students in medicine," she said.
