On November 8th, Emily Ogg of the Webbers Falls Chamber of Commerce presented high school English teacher Lisa Ward with a $200 check to help fund a high school field trip to see A Christmas Carol, a play to be performed at the Muskogee Little Theatre the first week in December.
Mrs. Ward likes to expose her classes to the arts by taking field trips to local plays. Last year she took her English II class to The Diary of Anne Frank at the Muskogee Little Theatre. Because schools do not have funds for these types of activities, last year the students had to pay for their ticket and meal. This year, Mrs. Ward began early trying to secure donations for this event. Besides the $200 donation from the Chamber of Commerce, Armstrong Bank has donated $350.
These two local organizations have helped Mrs. Ward’s classes in other ways as well. Last year, the Chamber of Commerce donated $200 and Armstrong Bank donated $300 to purchase novel sets for her English classroom.
Ralph and Patricia Carter donate $100 to help cover meals on upcoming theatre trip.
Mrs. Ward and her students are extremely grateful for these generous donations, and they are excited and eager to attend A Christmas Carol in the coming weeks.
