Rotarians donate to Schools Foundation

The Demopolis Rotary Club presented Amanda Barnes, Director of the Demopolis City Schools Foundation, with a donation during a club meeting in July. The Demopolis City Schools Foundation is celebrating 25 years of service to the community this year.

The Demopolis City Schools Foundation’s mission is to “encourage excellence, continued investment, and good stewardship of resources in support of students and all those who benefit from a successful Demopolis City School System.”

Several Rotarians serve as board members for the Demopolis City School Foundation. According to the foundation website,,  “Foundation grants impact every student in the system, sometimes more than once a day.” That’s an impact of 3,247 students.
