Kelly Sockman, District Manager of the US Bank, presented a check from the US Bank Director’s Fund to Logan Elm art teacher, Heath Bennett and high school principal, Nate Smith. This grant will be used to buy iPads for the art department which will assist the “student population by exposing them to the world of visual arts through history, studio production and technology” according to Heath Bennett.
