Local Business to Donate $20,000 to Park Crossing High School
Donation is the first in a five-year $100,000 challenge for two schools
Montgomery, Alabama. May 5, 2016. – Jim Wilson and Associates presented a fundraising challenge to Park Crossing High School – agreeing to match funds raised during the school year up to $20,000. The school accepted the challenge and, through a series of events, raised more than $45,000. Representatives from the Wilson company will present a check to the school on Friday, May 6, 2016, during Senior Honor Day at the school.
“We are thrilled,” said Park Crossing Principal Tracy Hubbert. “Even though we are a new school, we have so many things that need attention. This donation will go a long way to help us provide more services to our students. We are so very grateful to the Wilsons.”
Hubbert says the funds will be used, in part, for much needed portable laptop cart that will include 25 to 30 laptops and can be used by all students and teachers in the classroom.
The $20,000 donation is the first in a five year, $100,000 challenge to Park Crossing High School. The Wilson company has also offered the same challenge to James W. Wilson Elementary School and has already presented a check in the amount of $20,000 in May 2015.
Will Wilson, President of Jim Wilson & Associates believes business partnerships are critical to the success of our schools.
“Anytime we can encourage education and the physical well-being of our students we should do so, and this commitment and contribution to Wilson Elementary is a great way to do both,” said Wilson. The ultimate goal is to enhance education and bring together children, parents and the community to make an outstanding school even better.”
The company will present a check for the $20,000 donation on Senior Honor Day May 6th at the school at 9:00 a.m. Media representatives are asked to sign in at the school’s office.
