Foundation: Community Foundation of Fayette County

Students at Laurel Highlands Middle School in rural Kentucky are now able to get their hands on some free books thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Fayette County.

The nonprofit awarded the school a $12,855 grant, which was used to install a Bookworm Vending Machine, the Lexington Herald-Leader reports.

The machine, which students can use to retrieve coins that will be awarded to them for good behavior, grades, attendance, and other achievements, was designed by Inchy's.

"The first coins were distributed to students that completed the school's February/March reading incentive," says the school's assistant principal. "We look forward to an increase in reading and positive behaviors in the near future."
