EVSC Foundation hands out more than $200,000 to schools

Local News

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – We’re less than two weeks away from the first day of school in Vanderburgh County.

And a few schools are getting some help before the start of the year.

The EVSC Foundation handed out a number of checks Friday morning during a welcome back breakfast.

More than $200,000 was given out at the Southern Indiana Career and Technical Center.

Even though the foundation is giving to more than 100 programs each year, there’s still new ideas to help teachers and students every year.

“We’re always learning how to improve. This year, with the opening of teacher locker that’s going to be able to supply our teachers with no cost school supplies to fill gaps will definitely be able to help their classrooms even more.”

The money given out came from donations from people in the community throughout the year.

The first day for class at EVSC schools is Wednesday, August 7th.
