School wins $25,000


ROCHESTER, Minn. — Students at one area school got quite the surprise this morning.
GGP, the owner of Apache Mall announced that St. John the Evangelist school in Rochester won $25,000.
The school was randomly chosen from more than 30,000 entries as part of the companies “Celebrate Schools! Program.”
School leaders tell us receiving a gift, like this one, helps improve the educational opportunities for students.
“Huge,’ Interim Principal Erin Widman said. “Huge. Being a non-public, our finances are really dependent on parents and gifts and donations. So, to have this opportunity is just amazing.”
She says they will use the gift to make their campuses wireless and bring in iPads to help implement a new science program.
