Piedmont Cluster recognized in United Way campaign
The Piedmont Cluster was recognized during a recent principalsâ€™ meeting as contributing the â€œhighest per capitaâ€ in this yearâ€™s United Way Campaign.
The Piedmont Cluster was one of several recognized for its contributions to United Way. Union County Public School employees pledged $151,385.66 this year, an increase from last year's pledge of $136,698.93.
"I am very pleased with the dramatic increase in giving over last year given these tough economic times,â€ said UCPS Director of Employee Relations Ken Roess, who spearheaded the United Way drive. â€œI feel that our employees saw the increased needs of our community and rose to the occasion with an outpouring of financial support.â€
