Shaw High School receives Sam's Club donation after burglary

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. - At a ceremony Friday morning, Shaw High School got a generous donation after a recent burglary at the school. Sam's Club donated 7 brand new televisions to the Mass Communications Academy, four 55 inch smart televisions and three 32 inch smart televisions.

Principal Michael Barden said he is grateful for the donation and said the equipment is actually an upgrade from the items that were stolen. The students were also excited to start working on their projects again.

"We know that we're going to leave an incredible legacy. With the televisions donated by Sam's Club, we are just so happy and glad to have such incredible partners in our community," said senior Patricia Duffy.

The televisions will be used to show weekly comedic skits performed by the student, upcoming events, and they will also be used in the writing lab. Barden told the students, "When bad things happen there's always a silver lining."
