A recent donation to Windy River Elementary will help feed a student and honor a former Boardman student.
Starr Caswell recently contacted the school’s principal, Brandon Hammond, because she wanted to donate some money in the name of her friend, Pamela Kuhn. Kuhn attended Boardman schools while growing up there and is now a well-known opera singer, radio talk show host and music director/conductor who lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Caswell donated about $300 in Kuhn’s name to honor her. The funds will be used to pay for lunch for a student for the entire school year. In her letter to the school, Caswell said, “To give this gift in Pam’s name is an honor and privilege. Through all her accomplishments, Pam has never forgotten her roots and often speaks of her beloved home town, Boardman!”
Principal Hammond said the gift truly represents the meaning of the holidays and he is grateful for what the donation means to a family. “Boardman is a special place to raise a family, and to see the lasting effect that the area has had on Pamela (Kuhn) is a testament to this town,” Hammond said.
