Evonik Industries donated $10,000 to help students at Southwestern Middle and Mintonye Elementary Schools on Friday.

The schools were damaged by tornadoes last November.

Members of Evonik presented the check to the Tippecanoe School Corporation Friday morning. The money will help administrators get better technology for classrooms.

Evonik employs about 500 people in the area, some of whom have children attending Southwestern and Mintonye One of those employees is Stephanie Whitmore, who has a daughter attending Mintonye. Whitmore said the donation means a lot to her.

“It’s just been very special to see that leaders at Evonik care so much,” said Whitmore.

Since November’s tornado and relocation, TSC has received more than $50,000 in tornado relief donations.
