CW Boosters get donation

Waste Management Vice President for Ohio and Kentucky, Rob Smith, presented a $30,000 check to Canal Winchester Athletic Boosters President Chris Jones and Vice President Dave Mainella at halftime at the Canal Winchester vs. Bloom-Carroll varsity basketball game.

The check represents Waste Management’s commitment to funding the upgrade of the weight training and fitness room at Canal Winchester High School through the Athletic Boosters organization. These improved facilities will be used by all of the student athletes at CWHS and this private donation means that the improvements can be made without using tax dollars.
