Two IEA Members Receive $1,000 Athletic Program Grants from California Casualty

May 24, 2024

Two Idaho Education Association members recently received $1,000 grants for their athletic programs thanks to California Casualty, one of the benefit providers for Idaho Education Association Member Benefits.

Kristy Rudan of the Caldwell Education Association.

Kristy Rudan, of the Caldwell Education Association, and Clint Milliron, of Cassia County Education Association, were among 13 public middle and high schools from across seven states to be awarded a Thomas R. Brown Athletic Grant. Rudan’s grant benefits the boys’ basketball program at Syringa Middle School in Caldwell, while Milliron’s grant helps the wrestling program at Burley High School.

Since its inception in 2010, the Thomas R. Brown Athletics Grant Program has helped fund burdened athletic programs in 763 public schools across the nation.

Named in honor of Tom Brown, an ardent sports enthusiast and California Casualty chairman emeritus, the Thomas R. Brown Athletic Grant reflects his conviction that the values cultivated on the field — such as teamwork, trust, communication, and confidence— extend far beyond sports, enriching academic and personal development.
