Our club continues our support of the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation.
Mesquite Rotary Club president Jones Doughton presented a $7,500 donation check to the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation at their meeting on February 13th. Foundation executive director Randy Lewallyn accepted the check.
The Mesquite ISD Education Foundation provides funds for projects outside the regular school district budget through a grant application process. Funds donated by the greater community enhance innovative programs that benefit students and support teacher initiatives and growth.  Speaking for the group, Lewallyn thanked the club for its support, and noted that the funds would do much to assist many teachers and MISD students.
The foundation will present its major fundraiser, the annual Lone Star Legacy Gala and Concert, at Mesquite Arena on Saturday evening, February 24th.  It will feature an evening with county music artist Scotty McCreery.
