Summers County High School (SCHS) recently received a donation from Shawn Ball of L&S Toyota in Beckley. According to an announcement from Al Hudgins, Principal of SCHS, the donation has been given to the area’s Community in Schools program.
The announcement, which was posted to the school’s social media, states that the funds will be used to meet the needs of Summers County’s children. This will be done under the guidance of program coordinators Susie Hudson and Stanley Unroe.
Community in Schools is a national organization that believes, “every student, regardless of race, gender, ability, zip code or socioeconomic background has what they need to realize their full potential in school and beyond.”
After the program proved to be an incredible success in Greenbrier County, where it started in West Virginia, First Lady Cathy Justice began a push to expand the program to other counties in 2018. Summers County is one of the most recent areas to include the program.
Principal Hudgins ended the announcement by thanking “L&S Toyota, Shawn Ball, Superintendent Warvel, Susie Hudson and Stanley Unroe for helping Summers County kids!!”
