Birthday Fundraiser for Killingly High School Programs Raises $75,000
A Two-Night Affair Supported by the Cigar Industry
“It’s impossible to truly express my gratitude to the numerous individuals who have invested in the successful futures of Killingly’s youth over the years”, said Herklots. “In a time during which every family in the country has been affected by economic distress, people still recognize the importance of a high quality high school education. It is our responsibility to provide today’s youth with the tools that will make them tomorrow’s leaders. ”
Donors to the Learning for Life Fund receive regular newsletters providing updates on the fantastic achievements of the School-to-Career program, as well as a financial breakdown on how money is being used.
School-to-Career Coordinator at Killingly High School Robert Brennan, said, “We are truly grateful for Michael Herklots and his constituents’ benevolence to the School-to-Career Program over the past five years. It has, without a doubt, sustained our exemplary career pathways.”
