Presbyterian preschool awarded prestigious grant


First Presbyterian Church of Eustis Preschool was awarded one of the most prestigious grants for charitable organizations in the Mount Dora area. The Mount Dora Community Trust is a nonprofit organization begun in 1972 due to the generosity of Charles and Mary McLin.

The charity awarded $2,500 for the new Eustis preschool to purchase materials to teach the Florida Pre-K standards in math, science, basic skills, stem activities, literacy, art, creative imagination, and physical education.

“We are honored to receive this grant and humbled by the generosity of the Mount Dora Community Trust and the McLin Foundation,” says Preschool Director Shawnie Cheatham. “Our desire is to provide a high quality preschool program and this will go a long way in helping us achieve those goals.”

First Presbyterian Church of Eustis Preschool will open August at their campus at 117 South Center Street, Eustis. For more information, visit
