Fund Library Fund Donation by our class ... $1954!
Blackshaw has presented our latest class donation of $1,954 to
Principal Michael Harrington, who is "very grateful for
our support." It will be utilized in much the same manner
as our donation last year ($5400).
The Alumni Association's latest (and perhaps last) issue of the
Scuttlebutt devoted an entire page to the utilization
of our grant. For example, an iPad Reference Bar
was created; some of the funds were designated toward MakerSpace.
