BRYAN -- A Bryan Rudder High School teacher was honored in front of one of his classes today.
Construction management teacher, Don Brown, was awarded the Lowe's toolbox for education and skills USA grant..
He's one of only 33 winners across the US and the only teacher in the state of Texas to be awarded the grant.
Members from Lowe's presented brown and his class with a check today for more than six thousand dollars to put toward construction materials.
"With all the financial problems we're all having, we actually get less materials to work with so we don't get a lot of money for materials and things of that nature so this is a good opportunity for them to be able to build something and give back to their community," said Brown.
Brown's class tells us they're going to use the money to build a gazebo to give back to Rudder.
