Cliffs at Glassy Fundraiser Aims for $90,000 for Schools
Representatives from Heritage Elementary and Tigerville Elementary, along with Deputy Superintendent Dr. Mason Gary, and Cliffs of Glassy residents gathered atop Glassy Mountain for a back-to-school picnic to celebrate and recognize the Cliffs’ financial contributions and volunteer involvement in both schools. The Cliffs Resident Outreach (CRO) plans to raise $90,000 to fund two key initiatives – education and human services. The CRO’s mission is to provide resources to school children that promote opportunities for lifelong success.
"Donations from the Cliffs at Glassy CRO have supported literacy for Heritage students and their families throughout the school year and into the summer,” said Heritage Principal Heather Hester. “Funding for Family Literacy Night, as well as Summer Reading Camp, makes a difference in the lives of our students and their families and we are so grateful for this partnership."
Diane Jackson, principal of Tigerville Elementary, said, “Tigerville Elementary is fortunate to partner with the Cliffs at Glassy. Many Cliffs residents participate in our primary tutorial program and provide resources for our instructional program.”
