COLUMBIA, Ky. -- A gift from the Lindsey Wilson College Bonner Leader program will help a local program for schoolchildren stretch its budget.

The Lindsey Wilson Bonner program gave $2,000 to the Camp Casey program at Colonel William Casey Elementary School in Columbia. The Community Service Development Grant was made through the Bonner Foundation of Princeton, N.J.

The money will be used to serve more students at the after-school program, according to Camp Casey Director Dana Harmon.

Camp Casey is an after-school enrichment program provided to students at the Adair County elementary school. The Lindsey Wilson Bonner Leaders have volunteered at the program for the last five years.
