The Roanoke Rapids Rotary Club donated $500 to the William R Davie Middle Stem Academy to help launch their Student Incentive Program.
Brian Biles, principal, and Nakilah Edmonds, parent liaison at the school, recently made a presentation to the local club concerning the initiative.
The school hopes to launch the program once a month. Under the program, students will have the opportunity to receive an incentive for going above and beyond what is asked of them. Teachers will be able to submit names of scholars.
From there a winner each month per grade level will be announced and each student will be able to select an incentive provided by the school.
“The donation by the Roanoke Rapids Rotary Club will allow us to offer a wide range of incentives such as gift cards that will appeal to every grade level,” Biles said.
Kysha Gary, president of the Roanoke Rapids Rotary Club and Ervin V. Griffin Sr., past president, presented the check to the students, staff, and administration Monday.
“Our club supports a number of projects in the Roanoke Valley and we were elated to have the opportunity to help principal Biles and his staff launch the Student Incentive Program for deserving students,” Gary said.
