T.C. Cherry Elementary receives grant to upgrade playground

BOWLING GREEN Ky.-A local elementary school will be making some upgrades that the students are sure to enjoy.

T.C. Cherry Elementary has received a $20,000 grant from the WHAS Crusade for Children. The money will be used to upgrade the school’s current playground to make equipment handicapped accessible.

The new equipment will ensure that all students can enjoy the playground regardless of situations like being in a wheelchair.

This grant was an effort spearheaded by the school’s counselor Rebecca King, and the district’s exceptional child educator Theresa Meguiar.

As of now, there isn’t a start date for construction. That will depend on factors like weather.
