Dorchester School District Two received a $16,000 donation from Parker’s to support DDTwo teachers and students.
Superintendent Joe Pye and Summerville Elementary School Principal Katie Barker accepted the donation on behalf of the district on April 18 during a check presentation at Summerville Elementary. Parker’s Community Outreach Manager Olivia Parker presented the check, which is part of Parker’s Fueling the Community initiative to donate a portion of every gallon of gas sold on the first Wednesday of each month to area schools in coastal South Carolina and Georgia. Since 2011, Parker’s has donated more than $1.8 million to schools.
“This donation is an investment in Dorchester County and in the students who will serve as the future leaders of tomorrow,” said Olivia Parker.
