Rotary Club Donates $15,000 to IEKHS Music Department

Kirk Callwood, the president of Rotary Club of St. Thomas II, and fellow members presented a check from a Rotary International matching grant for $15,000 to Monet Davis and colleagues on behalf of Ivanna Eudora Kean High School (IEKHS). The donation money will help replace band equipment and supplies that were lost or destroyed as a result of hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017.

The presentation was held Saturday, Dec. 8, at IEKHS during the annual Breakfast with Santa, which was coordinated by Rotary St. Thomas East.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
