Barbara R. Crevling was a third grade teacher at Cornwall-on-Hudson for about twenty years. Barbara's keen sense of awareness, and her unusual concern for her students, left a permanent mark on her classes and her community. One of Barbara's abilities was encouraging her students to know themselves better and to pursue their creative interests. Constant personal encouragement was the means by which Barbara was able to promote and foster each student's self-awareness and growth.
In order to perpetuate this unique attribute of Barbara's the Cornwall Central Teachers' Association has established the Crevling Grant in her memory. This endowment allows Barbara Crevling's spirit to live on in each participant. With the award winners, there is hope that their underdeveloped talent will blossom and grow. It is our hope that by participating in this event, each student will gain a greater appreciation for the unique talents of us all.

Grant are required to have a sponsor. The sponsor must complete and
