PAVC donates to playground project

The Fuqua School Lower School SCA received a donation toward their playground renovations from the Piedmont Area Veterans Council, located in Farmville. Each month, the Lower School SCA selects a non-profit group in the area to collect items to donate toward the organization.

For the past few years, the SCA has selected the Piedmont Area Veterans Council. This November, students brought in items for women veterans and those local women who currently serve our country.

As a sign of gratitude to the students for their collections over the years, and to pay it forward, retired officer and co-founder of the Piedmont Area Veterans Council, Edward Dunn, and retired Army officer and 2020 President of the Piedmont Area Veterans Council, Dr. Quincy Handy, presented a check for $200 toward the playground renovations. Accepting the check on behalf of the Lower School was Lower School SCA President, Murphy Witko, Secretary, Kenna Schmidt, and Treasurer, Wyatt Tucker.
