C-L-K schools receive two large donations

At the last Calumet-Laurium-Keweenaw School District Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Chris Davidson announced two sizable donations, both over $100,000.

Stephen Danis’ gift will allow for the purchase of “a plasma cutter and a Wazer waterjet cutter for the Industrial Arts Program.” Additionally, Davidson says it will help Calumet High School to transform an unutilized portion of the building into a study lounge for students.

We know that learning doesn’t have to happen within the four walls of a classroom. There are a lot of different spaces, times, and areas in which students can capitalize within their schedule to continue their learning.

A shop will be installed, selling coffee and other small purchase items.

Paul and Barb Horton have continued their support for Horizons Alternative School in Mohawk. The couple have been instrumental in the building’s success, and are now turning to options to aid its students.

Now this was an endowment of a scholarship they created, I want to say it was a year or so ago that they created an annual scholarship. Something that Horizons has been lacking. We have an extremely robust scholarship program at the high school, but not so much at the alternative school.

Davidson says the district is preparing to make an announcement of a gift of roughly $1,000,000 in the days ahead.
