Rob and Patti Newman of Newman Construction made $500 donations at the Oct. 9th school board meeting to Mentone Elementary School Special Education (Cathy Olson’s class) and the TVHS Building Trades class.
For the last couple years, Cathy Olson (primary special education teacher at Mentone Elementary School) has taken her students to Magical Meadows. While at Magical Meadows, students have the opportunity to ride horses. Magical Meadows specializes in therapeutic horseback riding and the Mentone students get to enjoy this experience. Mr. and Mrs. Newman’s donation of $500 will go to offset the cost of this program.
Mr. and Mrs. Newman are also donating $500 to the Tippecanoe Valley High School Building Trades class for the purchase of construction equipment.
Mrs. Newman has served the Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation for many years. People who donate to causes such as these care deeply about our school corporation and the lives of children we serve. We are grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Newman for their generous support of Tippecanoe Valley students.
