LAURINBURG — The Knights of Columbus of St. Mary Catholic Church in Laurinburg held a recent fish fry with most of the proceeds going to help Scotland County teachers of exceptional children.
Ten teachers assisted in the event that served 935 meals. Participating teachers were Rose Anne Fitzpatrick, Joy Lindley, Nancy Williams, Nikki Bowen, Corinna Wilkins, Marissa Lemmond, Donna Clark, Kesha B. Hood, Cory Cowan and Catherine Pinkston.
Each of the teachers have been given a check for $160 and will receive an additional $40 from the North Carolina Knights of Columbus. St. Mary and the Knights have been assisting our local Exceptional Children teachers with funds for classroom expenses not covered by the school system for many years.
