Mesquite Rotary Club president John Taylor presented a $7,500 donation check to the Mesquite ISD Education Foundation at their meeting on January 28th. 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.  Speaking for the group, Lewallyn thanked the club for its 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.  The group is already preparing for this year’s ride, which will be held at Mesquite’s John Horn High School on Saturday, June 6th.
