After a successful round of fundraising last year, the South Butler County School District's Knoch Knights Legacies Foundation is ready to expand its service.

The foundation aims to acquire alternative revenue sources to enhance and complement district programs by soliciting businesses, alumni and residents.

The school board is also seeking a part-time person to serve as foundation manager.

The position will pay $250 per day, not to exceed $25,000 per year.

Last year, an informal committee raised about $100,000 to pay for a new school marquee along in front of the high school along Dinnerbell Road and a new scoreboard for the football season.

The school board formally launched the program on Wednesday night, appointing school president Nelda Burd and Directors James Jones and Linda Rieck to the nine-person foundation.

The new foundation will seek six more members.

The foundation will seek private funding to benefit students in areas such as technology upgrades, athletic and activity programming and facility enhancements.

“This will be an ongoing effort to supplement activities,” said Superintendent Dale Lumley. “We're finally going to get a foundation in place, and we're confident the early successes will translate into sustained sources of alternative revenue.”
