The Bellefonte Chapter of North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NA-YGN) held its first annual School Supply Drive during the month of August to benefit schools in the Jackson County (Alabama) area. Thanks to our Vector NA-YGN members in the Chattanooga and Knoxville locations, we were able to expand the donations collected for the Bellefonte supply drive to benefit local students.
The school supplies were presented to the staff of Hollywood Elementary School on Thursday August 11th, 2011. Supplies include, but are not limited to: three-ring binders, copy paper, folders, color pencils, markers, pens, and USB flash drives that will be used for eight grade projects. Electric pencil sharpeners and large desk calendars were also donated for each classroom. Principal Paul Kennamer stated that “getting all of these supplies is like Christmas” and looked forward to the jobs that Bellefonte will be creating for the area.
I would like to thank the entire Bellefonte Team for their contributions towards our first school supply drive, and offer a special thanks to Burns & McDonnell and Partners in Education (PIE) for their generosity in this effort.
