Target is awarding $100,000 grants to fifty schools in the United States, based on nominations of viewers of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." Beth Anderson, the parent of an Asbell student, nominated Asbell to receive one of the grants, and the school was notified of the award yesterday. Ms. Anderson attended the assembly today and was loudly cheered by the students and staff.

Local Target store manager also Casey Beckley attended the assembly and received a warm welcome.

Congratulations, Asbell!
