Flanagan, IL—Flanagan State Bank donated $10,000 to the Roanoke-Benson School District earlier this year with a check presentation during a school board meeting. The donation was made to support the district’s efforts to purchase and install new smart boards in classrooms at Roanoke-Benson Junior High School. “With the generosity of Flanagan State bank, we will be able to finalize the upgrade of all smart boards this school year,” said Superintendent Tom Welsh.

Smart boards hook up to a computer in the classroom and allow teachers to show visuals, create on the screen, and write on the board. The updated technology allows teachers to be more interactive and accommodates different learning styles. “We’re excited to help support the Roanoke-Benson School District’s efforts to enhance learning,” said Audrey Harlan, president of Flanagan State Bank. “We’re happy to know that year after year, multiple classrooms of local students will benefit from the upgraded equipment.”
