University of Phoenix donates book bags to Killian Elementary School


Now that school is starting again, University of Phoenix -  Columbia employees wanted to do something special for teachers who were just entering the education field in the community. Employees pooled their money, bought eight book bags, and filled them with school supplies. They contacted Eric Brown, the Killian Elementary principal, and inquired about first- year teachers who could use additional classroom supplies. Killian Elementary has two new teachers.
