McGlothlin Foundation to finance new playgrounds at Bristol Virginia schools
Students at a new intermediate school in Bristol, Virginia will also be awarded at recess with new exercise and play equipment.
Superintendent of Schools Keith Perrigan announced a sizeable donation from the Jim and Fran McGlothlin Foundation will help finance the installation of inclusive playgrounds at the new facility and at Van Pelt Elementary.
McGlothlin, a real estate magnate and co-founder of Bristol’s Hard Rock Casino, has made several donations to academic institutions over the past decade.
