Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- KFC and YUM! Brands surprised a local teacher with a $5,000 grant Monday.

Brenda Stokes is a teacher at Portland Elementary School and says she'll use the money to run the school's garden and environmental club.

"This is the most fun i could ever have," she said Monday. "Working with children in the outdoors, with the group of supporters we have from Yum!, is my dream job. You couldn't ask for a better job."

The grant money will be used to buy gardening supplies for the Peace Garden at school.

The garden provides a place for each class to plant and harvest a crop each year.
