Lawton Public Schools staff recently held its 2019 United Way Campaign. After collecting pledges and donations, Interim Superintendent Dr. Tom Thomas and Media Operations Director Dave McDermott presented a check in the amount of $60,691.10 to the United Way of Southwest Oklahoma board.
“We reached 101% of the district’s goal, with 12 schools having 100% participation and nine of them exceeding their goals,” McDermott said.
Congratulations to Tomlinson Middle School for smashing their contribution goal by 217% and Almor West Elementary by increasing their donation amount 66% over last year. Donations to United Way go directly back into local programs in our area. For more information, please visit https://www.uwswok.org/
