Opinion Letters Academic Foundation fundraiser nets $8,000+

On behalf of the students and teachers of Macon County, I would like to thank all of the businesses who donated goods to the Academic Foundation's annual fundraiser and all those who came out to the Cartoogechaye Elementary gym on April 6 to bid, eat, and have a good time with us. I am pleased to announce this year's auction raised over $8,000 for classroom projects and field trips for all students in Macon County.

The Academic Foundation is a non-profit, all-volunteer board that grants financial aid to teachers upon request in order to purchase materials for interesting classroom projects and field trips. The board is comprised of teachers, administrators, as well as members from the private-sector.  The board meets once a month in the Macon County Schools Central Office and are open to the public.
