Treasurer Lynn Rogers and Learning Quest Present Winners of Giveaway with Check

 

Treasurer Lynn Rogers was at two USD 383 to present prizes from the Choose My School Supply Drive. Ogden Elementary School received $2,500 to use schoolwide for school supplies. Ms. Heidi Peoples at Lee Elementary also received $1,000 to use for her classroom. This giveaway was made possible because of Learning Quest 529 accounts, which allow individuals to save money for post secondary educational expenses.

 

“529 accounts are a great resource for individuals to use for their own educational expenses,” Treasurer Rogers said. “And businesses can set them up to provide funds to employees for continuing education as well.”

 

“Learning Quest is a great program, and I’m excited to be supporting Ogden Elementary and Ms. Peoples with school supplies this year. Having been a school board member, I know how much of an impact we are making with this program.”

 

The two winners were chosen at random for the Choose My School Supply Drive that was run by the Treasurer’s Office. There were over 2,300 nominations total for the giveaway.
