Lawton-Fort Sill's Class Project

Leadership Lawton-Fort Sill’s class project to install playground equipment suitable for disabled students at B.C. Swinney Elementary got a big boost today when representatives of two groups visited the school during the morning assembly. Mel Grimes, commander of American Legion Post 29, presented a check for $4,000 that was raised recently through a benefit concert, while Swinney teacher Deborah Harwell presented a check for $200 from her sorority, Xi Delta Beta. accepting the checks were Swinney principal Traci Newell and Brandi Whatley, the spokesperson for LLFS Class XXIV. Newell is also a part of that class.
These donations, combined with other fundraisers conducted by the leadership group, bring money collected for the project to approximately $15,000, with more events planned. The class has already started the process of designing the playground and hopes to have the new equipment installed this summer.
