LPS Foundation raises over $24,000 for teachers

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The Lawton Public Schools Foundation raised $24,700 for teachers on Friday.

The foundation held a breakfast event at Golden Corral where 100-percent of the proceeds went to supporting teachers.

Anyone who took part in the breakfast could also nominate their favorite teacher. Two teachers were randomly drawn from those nominations and won $250 each.

Officials with the foundation say the money raised at the event will be used for teacher grants and to help give additional resources to the district for things that funding doesn’t cover.
