School district gets $50K for West Middle School improvements
By Jim Hagerty
Rockford Public School District 205 was awarded a $50,000 grant to improve West Middle School’s auditorium.
The grant will come from Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation. Funds will be used to purchase paint, a new stage curtain and make audio and visual improvements.
The Lowes Charitable and Education Foundation donates to charities and schools in communities where its home improvement stores are located.
The improvements to the 1,000-seat auditorium are the finishing touches on the school’s renovation project started last year by Rockford Sharefest. The project is slated to be completed this summer.
The renovations are the first in the building’s 70-year history.
