West Marion Elementary (Marion County) teacher Stacy Bartley is the winner of the February iPad giveaway by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA).

The contest was open to Kentucky residents who “liked” the KHEAA Facebook page, online at www.facebook.com/KHEAA, and answered a question about college.

Bartley was presented with the iPad at the Washington County Public Library in Springfield on March 6. She is a 2nd-grade teacher at West Marion Elementary.

“I was very surprised to have won out of 5,000 entries” Bartley said. “I plan to use the different apps for small-group settings in the classroom, so it will really help with my teaching.”

KHEAA plans to hold more iPad giveaways during the upcoming fiscal year.

A state agency, KHEAA also administers Kentucky’s student financial aid programs, including the Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship.
