DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - The Dothan Education Foundation and Wiregrass Commons Mall presented a $700 check to Cloverdale Elementary Tuesday afternoon.
The donation was collected during the 9th annual Dothan City Schools Education Showcase.
Food vendors in the Mall donated a certain percentage of the money they made that night.
This is the first year that Cloverdale has won.
Brianne Kent, 5th grade teacher at Cloverdale Elementary School says:
"This is a huge honor for Cloverdale to win this, it shines a huge positive spotlight on our school and our kids and as hard as our kids worked as well putting this showcase together and our team members, this is just a huge success for our school this year...we're really excited."
The money will go to upgrade the campus, buy new technology, and update the playground.
