Our schools need your support in providing our students with the technology they need to compete in a global community. The students we graduate will be the employees of world banks, international businesses, global manufacturing and marketing, and other high tech industries. Schools need to constantly update expensive technology in order to accomplish this monumental task. This is an expensive undertaking and we are asking for your help! Please donate to the future of our children. Remember, all donations are tax-deductable to the extent allowed by the law. The Wilkes County Schools Federal ID number is 56-6001133.
