Bluffton High School is one of three schools in the nation that have been given the opportunity and funding by the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation to think outside the box.
'Through this funding, we want our students to understand the importance of giving back. ... To find true philanthropy that will make a difference,' said Principal Aretha Rhone-Bush.
In all, the foundation awarded more than $1.5 million in grants to the school and to eight organizations that will work with students at the school for the next three years, helping them make informed decisions on what they will do after graduation -- with an emphasis on continuing their education."
