Lewis S. Mills High School Students Benefit from Grant

The weight room at Lewis S. Mills High School will be getting a lift to benefit the student-athletes. That project got a boost when the Burlington Community Fund at Main Street Community Foundation awarded the high school a $1,000 grant. Specifically, the grant will be used to purchase and install new mirrors to enhance the student-athletes’ training.

The grant was awarded during a small ceremony in late June at Lewis S. Mills High School. Janet Schwartz of the Burlington Community Fund Advisory Council, along with Jarre Betts, Vice President of Programs at the Community Foundation, presented the grant to Christopher Rau, Principal of Lewis S. Mills High School, and David Francalangia, Athletic Director of Regional School District 10.

The Burlington Community Fund was founded in 2011 by a group of committed community leaders in Burlington to create an endowment fund to support charitable projects and programs that will enhance the quality of life for their neighbors. The Fund regularly assesses community needs and awards grants accordingly. In addition, the Fund holds an annual grant cycle. Applications will be made available July 15 and are due September 15.
