On Jan. 24, Executive Director Bob Kennedy and board members of the Lincoln-Way Foundation presented the Lincoln-Way Superintendent R. Scott Tingley with a check in the amount of $100,000. In addition to Wednesday’s donation, the Foundation raised over $5,000 for the Lincoln-Way Transition Program, bringing the grand total donation to $105,670.

The funds were raised through various products and events hosted by the Foundation. Sales of Lincoln-Way school calendars and commemorative bricks, local business support through the Foundation Partner Program, as well as the Lincoln-Way Half Marathon and Gala Dinner events all contributed to the grand total.

The donation will provide Lincoln-Way students with accessibility to a more digital experience. With the addition of ten carts and 332 new laptops, over 1500 students will benefit from the gift. Teachers at each of the Lincoln-Way campuses will be implementing new technology into their classrooms nearly every day.

Additionally, the $5,670 donation will provide students of the Transition Program with equipment to create a “Chat and Break” area, individual study/computer carrels, student-centered work stations, and seminar tables to create post-secondary learning environments.
