Manager Brian Billings and his Sonic franchise, located at I-35 and Highway 33, gave their most recent generous donation to Guthrie Public Schools.
This year Guthrie Junior High was chosen to receive the donation.
Billings made the presentation on Monday evening’s Board of Education meeting to Junior High Principal Robbie Rainwater.
“We sincerely thank you for your support and all that you do,” Supt. Dr. Mike Simpson said. “Most of us know you that you do so much more than just this.”
Billings has been donating $7,000 each year to the school district since 2007. Each year Billings donates to a different school building at GPS.
“A bunch of little prizes are nice, but one big prize is great. They (schools) all need so much,” Billings said.
In addition, Sonic proudly sponsors Guthrie High School athletics with radio and internet broadcasts.
“It’s very fortunate that we are able to do this and are very excited that we can do it,” Billings said.
