CHS Hotspots Funded

Local Company & Foundations Fund 35 Hotspots for Students

Green Hills Telephone and Lambert, Litton, and Jenkins Foundations Support Virtual Learning Efforts

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! On behalf of Chillicothe High School and the Chillicothe R-2 School District, I would like to formally thank the following companies and foundations for working with us during our virtual learning deployment to fund 20 hotspots for CHS, 15 hotspots for CMS, and three months of data for students to complete work online.

Our District is tremendously blessed to have the unyielding support of our community, and these companies and foundations have gone above and beyond to assist us in providing wifi connectivity to our students. Thank you to Green Hills Telephone Company, Lambert Foundation, Litton Foundation, and Jenkins Foundations for your generous support!

I wanted to extend a special thank you to Green Hills Telephone Company, specifically David Adams and Tony Figg, for working with me and Melissa Young from the first day of our virtual learning deployment to connect as many students as possible through Green Hills wifi. When they realized that we had needs outside of their coverage area, they went above and beyond---they donated money to our high school so that we could purchase additional hotspots and data to cover the needs of more students and then worked with other foundations to accrue additional donations to fund the remaining needed hotspots and data.

We are truly humbled by the generous support of Green Hills Telephone, Lambert Foundation, Litton Foundation, and the Jenkins Foundation. In addition, I would like to thank Zito Media for connecting as many families as possible through their service to assist in home wifi connectivity for students.

I am honored to work with a community who works tirelessly to provide equitable educational opportunities for all of our students.

With great respect,

Dr. Jill Watkins
