ATHENS (WAOW) -- On the first Tuesday of every month, Wake Up Wisconsin selects one lucky teacher as the winner of our tools for schools campaign.
This month's winner of 300 dollars is Patty Riske, the Athens High School Band Director.
The 31-year teaching veteran says some of her instruments have gotten a lot of use over the years. She says, "I have some percussion equipment that is falling apart, so I would like to be able to replace the equipment... either cymbals or snare drums."
Riske says the percussion equipment was replaced about ten years ago, so this money is a welcome surprise.
Tools for Schools is brought to you buy River Valley Bank, Courtesy Motors, and of course Newsline 9.
