The Doug McCoy Memorial Masonic Teacher Grant is in honor of the late Worshipful Master of Dacula Lodge #433. Past Master McCoy was very invested in public education. His daughter teaches in Gwinnett County Public Schools and he served as a mentor in the GCPS Mentor Program for several years. Dacula Lodge has awarded two $250 grants to deserving teachers at Dacula Elementary School over the past several years.
