Denali Donates Supplies to Elementary Schools

Sept. 21, 2004 – Gifted and talented students at six St. Croix public elementary schools will receive more than $11,000 worth of books, equipment and supplies, thanks to a donation by Denali Asset Management, LLLP, an EDC investment company based on the island.
The schools include Lew Muckle Elementary School, Alexander Henderson Elementary School, Eulalie Rivera Elementary School, Evelyn M. Williams Elementary School, Pearl B. Larsen Elementary School and Richardo Richards Elementary School.
Denali, in conjunction with the St. Croix Foundation, will formally present the items to recipient schools on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 3 p.m. at the foundation's office in Gallows Bay, according to Deanna J. James, foundation associate executive director.
There are many requirements to become a student in the Gifted & Talented Program including test results from Iowa Test of Basic Skills, writing samples and teacher nominations, James said.
Denali's donation serves to encourage students to excel in their studies to become productive members of this community and reinforces the foundation's motto, "Together, We Can Make a Difference," she said.
Denali would like to offer thanks to Roger Kainth Co. for delivery of shipped items.
For more information, contact Denali at 778-7744 or the foundation at 773-9898.
