Sierra Frac Sand in Bossier Parish wanted to help Benton Middle School with their technology initiatives. The business donated $30,000 dollars. The money will go towards buying new chromebooks for the school. Benton Middle School Principal Dr. Kyle Machen believes the investment in the chromebooks are a necessity in the classroom. 

“The donation will allow us to provide three chrome carts of thirty six chromebooks in our classroom. It will bring us halfway to our goal of one to one technology,” said Dr. Machen. 

During the prensentation, Benton Middle announced its designation as a “Professional Learning Community” for the second year in a row. Benton Middle is the only school in the state to earn this distinction.
