Toyota of Sylacauga donates $1,260 to SCS Foundation Monday

SYLACAUGA, Ala. –  Toyota of Sylacauga continues to invest in the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation.

As a committed partner with the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation, Toyota of Sylacauga has been donating $30/new car sold to the foundation since January 2021. Their contributions thus far total $15,820. These contributions directly affect learning across all curriculum areas for all students in Sylacauga City Schools by providing needed equipment, supplies, teaching manipulatives, etc. to enhance learning for our students.

The January 2022 sales check in the amount of $1,260 was presented today at Sylacauga High School in Mrs. Becky Wilson’s science lab. Toyota
contributions helped fund actual sheep brains that her students dissected and studied to learn about the parts of a brain.

“Our local foundation is so grateful to Chris Cain, General Manager at Toyota of Sylacauga, for this valued partnership that has been a major factor in the improvement of education,” the foundation said in a release. “Their commitment and involvement in the educational process of our students provides additional funding that supplements in areas not available otherwise. Help the foundation help our students by supporting Toyota of Sylacauga . . . it is a Win-Win!!”

The Sylacauga City Schools Foundation was created in 1988 by Dr. Joseph B. Morton and was one of the first educational foundations of its type in Alabama and the nation. The Foundation’s role is to support Sylacauga City Schools in the system’s quest for excellence and is dedicated to enhancing the educational needs of students. There are several ways for the community of Sylacauga to make contributions—memorials and honorariums, purchasing a paver/marble through the Aggie Walk Brick Campaign, and supporting a pending or new Chair. Since the Foundation was founded, there have been 61 total Chairs donated, over $1.3 million given to teachers through grants affecting more than 367,000 students. If you are interested in making a difference in the success of the students of Sylacauga City Schools, mail contributions to the attention of Mrs. Carol Sprayberry, Executive Director, 43 North Broadway, Sylacauga, AL 35150.
