Dumas High School’s Apping Up Dumas project was among 15 schools to receive a “Beyond the Bell” grant recently from the EAST Initiative, in partnership with the Arkansas Department of Education.

EAST is a project-based, service-learning oriented program that provides students with high-end technology.

The project awarded more than $94,000 in funding to EAST schools for educational STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) projects that will serve their communities outside normal classroom hours in the summer and fall.
