U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), along with a representative from the Department of Education, will present a check for $300,000 to five Baltimore City School on Jan. 14. The money is from a grant called Project Serv and is designed to help schools recover from traumatic events. Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings, Baltimore City Councilman Nick Mosby, and Dr. Gregory Thornton, CEO, Baltimore City Schools, are scheduled to give remarks.

The ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m. at Matthew A. Henson Elementary School, one of the five recipients.
