Recently, businessman Dwight "Duke" Marshall delivered over 100 backpacks with school supplies to the Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Gaddis on Thursday, September 15. They will be distributed to students within the next few workdays. The Wicomico Rotary Club, the Salisbury Rotary Club and the Sunrise Rotary Club all contributed to this endeavor.
For several years, Sherwin Williams and its employees have donated hundreds of dollars worth of school supplies and materials each year to students and staff. In addition to the several student items, Sherwin Williams donated legal size paper, binders and bulletin boards to the staff this year. Materials will be distributed by the Student Services department within the next few work days. For years, Sherwin Williams Community Outreach Program has gone above and beyond.
