Educational center receives major donation


The Crossing Educational Centers received quite a gift Friday. The center was give $10,000 from AT&T Indiana.

Chief Executive at The Crossing, Rob Staley said the money is a huge help because the students need the money to help run their own businesses. Some of the businesses include tree cutting and palette making. Making a profit can be a challenge though he said.

"Well $10,000  is terrific for us because if you can imagine running these businesses it's about $450,000 and so our students have to make $450,000," said Staley

ATT&T Indiana said they made the donation as part of an effort to help high school students get job training.

George Fleetwood, President Of AT&T Indiana said, "We are an employer of over 5,000 people in the state of Indiana and we're always looking for good employees and those people need to have an education and be prepared for the workforce.  "

The money will help students reduce their business deficit by purchasing equipment they need.
