School PTOs receive funds raised from drag racing event

The recent drag racing event at the Lake Cumberland Dragway brought thousands of spectators to Russell County, and the event also raised a notable amount of money for Russell County Schools.

Tourism Director Danielle Wilson was at the Russell County Fiscal Court meeting yesterday and said around 3,500 people attended the event. A portion of the money received from admission to the event was given to PTOs at each Russell County School.

Each school’s parent-teacher organization received $1,000 yesterday as representatives from each school were at the meeting to accept the donation.
