Price Receives Generous $100,000 donation from Dawson Family

On Thursday, the Board of Trustees and Dr. Andrews recognized the Dawson family for a generous $100,000 donation to Price Middle School in celebration of the life of Betty C. Moates, who lived near the school and took an interest in its students, teachers and programs. Her brother Johnny Dawson, as well as grandnieces Caylie and Miranda Dawson, attended the meeting to receive thanks from the district. Per the family’s wishes, $80,000 of the donation will be go toward technology upgrades, $15,000 for drama and music programs, and $5,000 for the library. These are areas of significant need for Price as well as areas of particular interest to Ms. Moates. We thank the Dawson family for this wonderful and very generous gift that will benefit Price students for years to come!
