Morgan – Morgan Education Foundation leaders report the group has surpassed the $400,000 mark in fundraising activities for the Trojan Century Center. The bulk of the donations have come from local sources ranging from $50 to $200,000 cash gifts and in-kind work and services.
“It’s hard for me to express in words how overwhelmed and appreciative we are of those who have given to this project,” reports Superintendent Ken Adams, “People of this community really care about the quality of education and future of our young people.”
The most recent donations come from Kern River Gas Transmission Company and three $1000 donations from local families whose children graduated from Morgan High School. Donations are continuing and the Foundation’s goal is to raise an additional $180,000 towards the completion of the Center.
“Construction costs have increased and we want to make certain the project is entirely completed,” remarked Foundation Past President Scott Deru, “Our committee is confident they can reach their goal.”
On August 17, members of the Foundation along with local leaders and support organizations will gather to announce a new fundraising effort which will help generate the needed funds. The event will open the door to alumni, residents, and friends of the Morgan School District to assist in the project and be recognized for their donations.
“The program we will announce on August 17 is a way for many of us to help,” concluded Foundation member Jerry Peterson, “I’m confident our community and alumni will help us reach our goal.”
