Funds will fuel educational innovation across Kearney schools
Kearney, Mo., July 16, 2021: In addition to keeping Kearney well fed, supplied and served, Cosentino’s Price Chopper also ensures a bright future for the community’s children by supporting schools.
Cosentino’s Price Chopper owners and staff have reaffirmed their commitment as partners in education with the recent donation of $2,000 to the Kearney School District Education Foundation. The donation was officially celebrated during a brief ceremony with Store Director Kevin Norris and Foundation Board Chair Julia Kuhn on Friday morning, July 16, at the store.
“It’s very important to the Cosentino family that we go above and beyond to serve our community,” Mr. Norris said. “We love our schools and we want to support our teachers and students. This donation reflects our core values.”
The mission of the Kearney School District Education Foundation is to bring together area business and community leaders who value education to guide and direct resources outside the district budget, thereby providing opportunities to enrich the educational experience for students and staff of the Kearney School District.
The donation from Cosentino’s Price Chopper will help fund the foundation’s Teacher Innovation Grants, which allow certified classroom staff in KSD to invest in cutting-edge tools and techniques for their students. The foundation also funds and awards college scholarships for Kearney High School graduates.
“We are so deeply grateful to Cosentino’s Price Chopper for making this donation,” Ms. Kuhn said. “These funds help build the future of the entire community.”
