Mesquite Rotary Club President Dr. Jones Doughton presented a $10,000 donation check to the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation during the club’s meeting on December 6th. Foundation Executive Director Randy Lewallyn accepted the check.
The Mesquite ISD Education Foundation provides funds for projects outside the regular school district budget through a grant application process. Funds donated by the greater community enhance innovative programs that benefit students and support teacher initiatives and growth. Lewallyn thanked the club for its long history of support, and noted that the funds would do much to assist many teachers and MISD students.
The funds which allow the club to make these donations come from the proceeds of their past Mesquite Rotary “Rodeo Road Rally” bike ride fundraisers.  Next year’s ride is already being planned for Saturday, June 10th at Mesquite High School.
