BHS alumni donates $50,000 to Maries R-2 for technology

Posted

Belle High School Alumni J. Michael (Mike) Party and his wife Cathie Party donated $50,000 to the Maries R-2 School District on Sept. 4 to purchase new Chromebooks.

“A huge thank-you to the Party Family Heritage Trust for their donation,” district officials said on the Maries R-2 Schools Facebook page. “We cannot express our gratitude enough for this donation and the huge impact it will have for our students.”

Superintendent Dr. Lenice Basham said on Tuesday that the district plans to pass down the Chromebooks at the high school to Bland Middle School.

“Once we get these ordered in, every classroom in the district will be one-to-one on Chromebooks,” Basham said.

This is the second donation from the Party Trust.
