Laurel Kiwanis Club donates flashcards to Laurel third graders
Each year when thousands of patrons pass through the lines of the annual Pancake Day, the Laurel Kiwanis Club is raising funds to help area students succeed. Through those funds over a dozen scholarships are awarded annually and for the fourth year, the Laurel Kiwanis Club donated a set of multiplication and division flashcards to every third grade student in both the Laurel and Jones County school districts. To facilitate the giving, members of the club visited every elementary school in the area to personally give each student their gift. Pictured with third graders at Maddox Elementary School are Kiwanis member Barbara Johnson, Superintendent Dr. Toy L. Watts, Kiwanis members Tim Dudley and Michael Cudworth and Principal Tammy Griffith.
