Luck Companies donates to help rebuild high school hit by tornado damage

Ben Thompson presented the Luck Companies donation to high school principal David Branham.

Luck Companies presented a $15,000 check to North Central High School (NCHS) in Kershaw County School District. The donation will help rebuild the school following the storm damage caused from a tornado in January. The tornado devastated North Central High School causing insurmountable damage leaving students without a place to call home. Currently, NCHS students are finishing out the remainder of the school year at the district’s vocational building but have been left without necessary resources like a functioning library.

“Luck Companies is focused on actively supporting our communities. It’s an honor to give back by collaborating with North Central High School in their efforts to rebuild their library,” said Ben Thompson, Luck Companies greenfield development director, according to the school district’s web site. “The administration, staff, and community are doing great work and Luck is proud to participate in support of this collective effort. The donation will be used to rebuild the school, but also to purchase high quality, shelf-ready books and other media center materials for the school’s library.

“We are extremely grateful for Luck Companies’ outreach and generosity,” said David Branham, North Central High School principal. “They are serving as a great role model for our students on how to make a positive difference in your local community. The Knight family is very appreciative of their support.” Despite the severe damage caused to the school, the community has come together to support the students and faculty during this difficult time.

“We are honored to call Kershaw County home and to be able to join those who are working to rebuild a great learning environment,” Thompson said. “At Luck Companies, we make it our mission to ignite human potential by engaging in support of our local communities.”
