Schools getting roof relief

Relief is finally arriving for Clinton City Schools in the form of much needed roofing repairs as part of another of their planned construction projects for this summer. For the past few year CCS have been in dire need of these repairs, which totaled in the millions for full completion. According to school officials, this was a monumental task as the system is allotted no more than roughly $400,000 yearly for infrastructure repair to use on the schools. That changed this year due to needs-based capital funding becoming available for CCS to access.

Carr to take Rotary’s high helm

The same could be said of her efforts when she became a member of the Clinton-Sampson Rotary Club 15 years ago. With that same giving spirit, Carr dug in, reading to children in the public schools, picking up roadside litter, serving up shrimp and giving back to Rotary through the Paul Harris Fellowship, Polio Plus and the Cart Fund, which supports Alzheimer’s Research.
