Sir Winston Churchill grant given to Codicote woman
“WE make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” – Sir Winston Churchill.
It may not be one of the most famous quotes made by the war-time Prime Minister, but it certainly is a poignant one.
And it is something Dr Elizabeth Jordan will keep on her mind as she treks across America and Hong Kong to endeavour into cross-cultural lessons on parental involvement in education, thanks to a grant provided by the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
The Codicote woman, who had to go for an in-depth interview to receive the grant, said: “I applied because I am very active in the local community.
“I work with parents, particularly helping them with their children in regards to schooling,” she said.
