A big thank you to Lowes! The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $15,934 grant to the Wilkesboro Elementary School for replacing the media center’s bookshelves. The center’s current shelves were dried out, splintered, and too high for students to reach. The grant will fund 25 new bookshelves to replace the existing ones. When the new bookcases were delivered this summer, several workers from Lowes came to Wilkesboro Elementary and helped move books, bookshelves and rearranged furniture so the library would be ready for students in August. Thank you to the following workers: Beth Coolay, Andy Martin, Jason Pilkington, Lance Nievaard and Terry Strickland for all your hard work from us at Wilkesboro Elementary School.
