Kiwanis donate $50,000 for technology needs at Highland East Jr. High

MOORE — On May 19, Moore Public Schools hosted a donation ceremony presented by the Kiwanis Clubs’ past Governor for the Texas Oklahoma District. The presentation was a $50,000.00 donation gift for technology needs at Highland East Junior High in Moore.

The junior high school was severely damaged during the May 20 tornado last year. The donation will make Highland East Junior High School the first junior high in the Moore Public Schools District to have an interactive white board projector or smart board in every room.

“In 2013 while Governor for the Texas Oklahoma District of Kiwanis International, I watched with the rest of the world in horror as a devastating tornado changed the lives of the citizens of Moore.

As the news stories circled the world, the Kiwanis clubs of the world responded. Kiwanis clubs from the Texas-Oklahoma District, other North American and International Kiwanis Clubs donated money to make this gift possible. Some clubs sent the money saying it was a payback as the Kiwanis Clubs of Texas-Oklahoma had helped them during their time of need during Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy.

“You see, our motto is that Kiwanis is dedicated to changing the world one child and one community at a time. I think this gift shows that commitment,” Past Governor Anne Wilkins said.
