Temple City High School (TCHS) has recently received a donation of over $250,000 from an anonymous alumnus.
These funds will primarily be used to upgrade the technology on campus. This includes installing a brand new computer lab in the school’s Media Center and providing the social science, English, math, and science departments with MacBooks.
“Anything where kids are becoming more fluent in using technology is a good thing,” said Mark Howard, a teacher at TCHS. “Things can only get better.”
Along with this generous donation, the donor has offered to contribute an additional $100,000 to these projects if the high school is able to match the offer by September 30, 2013.
As a result, the community has rallied together in order to meet the deadline. The Temple City Schools Foundation has already donated $37,000 to the effort, thus allowing the high school to reach the halfway point of their goal.
Those who would like to contribute may claim donor envelopes from the office of TCHS. Donations are also accepted via PayPal.
All contributions are tax deductible; the tax ID number is 95-6002989. For more information, visit the high school website.
