Burke County Public Schools’ art programs recently received donations from The Old School Studio (TOSS), which is part of The Industrial Commons.

Kathryn Ervin, community organizer for TOSS, hand-delivered checks to art teachers and principals at several of our schools. The money donated will go toward advancing and supporting BCPS art programs.

Ervin said, "We are overjoyed to support the BCPS art programs, giving students across the county an opportunity to develop creative, critical thinking skills. An arts education is an indispensable tool in cultivating the next generation of leaders, entrepreneurs, and creatives revitalizing and sustaining the rural South. We are so honored to celebrate the BCPS art teachers for the work they do. A huge thanks is due to all those in the community who made these contributions possible."

The funds were raised by an event hosted by Paul Rosebrock.

BCPS Superintendent Dr. Mike Swan said, “One way our students and teachers grow is when a supportive community surrounds them. That is exactly what TOSS is doing with our art education programs. We are so thankful that they are investing in our students and providing special opportunities to them through art.”
