In September 2017, Warren Waugh of Lyon-Waugh Auto Group made a $100,000 donation pledge to the Peabody Education Foundation. On September 12, 2018, Warren presented his second check of $20,000 to our foundation. PEF Chairman, David Gravel was joined by committee members as Warren presented the check.
Warren’s donation will be primarily used to enhance the quality of our Best Bet program. At the beginning of every school year, we offer Peabody Teachers the opportunity to apply for grants for resources or programs that fall outside of the regular school budget. Warrens donation will be going to help fund these grants. During the 2017-2018 school year, we were able to fund 44 out of the 70 grants that we received and with the help of Warrens donation we are hoping to fund even more
Thank you to Warren Waugh and Lyon-Waugh Auto Group for their continued support of Peabody education!
