On the creative front, Learning Center principal Quinn Haas and art instructor Kim Aritonivich applied for a competitive grant through the Youth Philanthropy Initiative arm of The Community Foundation of Mount Vernon and Knox County. The high school students on the grant committee liked what they heard, and the Learning Center received about $1,400 to purchase much-needed art supplies.

“It is awesome,” said Aritonivich. “Now we have supply money so we can do projects the students wouldn’t be able to do otherwise.”
