North Kirkwood Middle School Family and PTO Group Partner on Donation to Complete Outdoor Pavilion
Over the past few years, the North Kirkwood Middle School (NKMS) PTO was working toward fundraising to construct an outdoor pavilion on the campus of NKMS. The PTO raised $25,000 toward the project but was several thousand dollars short of their fundraising goal. The Whitson family stepped in and made a $10,000 donation to the NKMS PTO to offset the monies needed to complete the project. With assistance from the District facilities department, the “Bulldog Pavilion” is now complete, and NKMS students and classes enjoy the additional space year-round.
