The Kannapolis Education Foundation (KEF) has donated $30,000 to Kannapolis City Schools (KCS). KEF Chairperson, Kristina Cook, presented the $30,000 check to Superintendent, Dr. Chip Buckwell, during the September meeting of the Kannapolis City Board of Education. Most of the $30,000 was raised during the Kannapolis Education Foundation’s annual fundraising breakfast in March. The $30,000 donation also included proceeds from the Spring it On 5K race as well as contributions from local businesses, foundations, and A.L. Brown alumni.

The $30,000 donation from the Kannapolis Education Foundation will be used to provide educational resources for Kannapolis City Schools’ students. The money will help KCS begin an Advanced Manufacturing Lab in 2019 and provide materials for the district’s engineering and robotics programs.


Dr. Chip Buckwell says the $30,000 donation makes a big difference for KCS students. "We really appreciate the support of the Kannapolis Education Foundation. These funds will help so many of our students now and will help our community in the long run. Being able to train our students in advanced manufacturing, robotics, and engineering will help local businesses and will change our students' lives for the better. Everyone in KCS is extremely grateful to the Kannapolis Education Foundation, and we thank all of the generous donors that made this gift possible." 

The Kannapolis Education Foundation has now given more than $800,000 to KCS to provide educational resources for students and teachers.
