Hardaway High accepts $9,300 donation for new LED sign

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - In honor of Hardaway High School's 50th Anniversary, a donation was made for the purchase of a new LED marquee sign.

The Hardaway High Alumni Association announced that a donation of $9,300 was made to the school for the sign.

"The new sign will allow the school to better promote the school's activities and events and provide a better way to communication messages to parents, students and the community," says Board President Billy Kendall.

At a recent meeting at the school, Principal Matt Bell was shown receiving the check from President Billy Kendall.
