St. George’s Episcopal School Endowment Fund
Children in Lamar County are staying one step ahead of the technology curve thanks to many donors who have given to the St. George’s Episcopal School Endowment Fund of the Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation
The annual distribution from the fund to the school can be used for equipment and classroom resources, special events, facilities improvements and other areas. The most important of these, said Head of School Larry Collins, is improved access to technology.
“Our kids have technology around them everywhere and so we’re trying to stay on an even par, or a little ahead,” he said. “We want to give them the tech skills they’ll need, and the funding from our endowment allows us stay competitive with our technology in the classroom.”
Collins said the fund is a win-win for the community, because it is a way residents can charitably give, and the children in their county will reap the benefits.
“Students gain skills and experience through technology, which will better serve them not only in middle and high school, but also in college and in life,” he said.
