Logan schools accepts donation
January 23, 2019
The Logan school board on Jan. 14 accepted a $1,000 donation from the American Legion post in Logan to pay for new sports safety equipment.
Schools Superintendent Dennis Roch said in an email the donation will be used to buy and install new custom safety mats in the school’s weight room.
Garnett Duncan, finance director for American Legion Post 77 in Logan, said the money came from the group’s charity account funded by gaming revenue at the Legion Hall. Post 77 previously has used the money for scholarships and donations to local fire and ambulance services, Duncan said.
“When we have excess money, we go to (these groups) and ask, ‘Is there anything we can help you with?’” he said.
The school board also awarded a $40,088.11 contract to Bryan Roach Custom Builders in Logan to construct a new press box at the high-school football field.
Roch said it was the only bid received for the project. Roach, a board member, abstained from voting to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.
