Withrow Students Learn Work and Social Skills Through Tiger Diner

Your donations to the Withrow Alumni Assn help support Tiger Diner, an innovative program with two praiseworthy goals: first, to show appreciation to faculty and staff; and second, to provide 16 students with multiple disabilities the opportunity for job training and preparation.

Once a month, students prepare and serve a delicious lunch. During the week before, all students cook the food and bake the desserts.

Well-fed Tiger Athletes Perform Better
A few years ago, Alumni Assn. Board of Trustees Vice President, Carol Mitchell Lawrence ’84, started a program called Fuel Our Tigers to raise money to provide game day meals for our football players. At the beginning of this school year, the Board voted to expand this program to include home and away game day meals for all student athletes. Before, the pandemic school closing, the program was projected to provide over 7,000 meals to 475 student athletes for the school year at a cost of around $21,000. Withrow’s student athletes and coaches thank the alumni for their generous donations, which help fund this program. If you would like to help this program, please Donate Now by clicking HERE and select Help Fuel Withrow Tigers Before Sporting Events.
