Students at seven elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school will have better technology resources in the coming year thanks to generous donations from the Greater Crofton Council.
The Council recently handed out checks totaling $258,000 to Arundel High School; Arundel and Crofton middle schools; and Crofton, Crofton Meadows, Crofton Woods, Four Seasons, Millersville, Nantucket, and Waugh Chapel elementary schools. The money was set aside eight years ago as part of an agreement on a housing project in the Crofton area.
“The Greater Crofton Council is very happy to be able to support the public schools in our area,” GCC Vice President Torrey Jacobsen said.
Arundel High School was given $45,000 by the council. Arundel and Crofton middle schools received $30,000 each, and each of the elementary schools received $25,000 except Millersville, which was given a $3,000 donation.
“We talk a lot about the fact that no school system can be great by itself and that we need the involvement of business and community partners,” Superintendent Kevin Maxwell said. “This is a great example of a group of community-minded individuals realizing the value of the schools in their area and stepping up to the plate to help make us great.”
