Education Exchange

tuition hike

A local business has begun a new reward program that will benefit teachers and school organizations.

XPress Lane stores in the Meridian area are distributing education exchange cards. With every $10 minimum purchase, the card will be stamped. Ten stamps will mean a $1.00 donation for your favorite teacher or school.

"XPress Lane's always been community-minded," said general manager, Allan Tolleson. "I've always tried to emphasize things and what we do to benefit either needy organizations or schools in general. This was just a program we came up with the help benefit directly the classroom."

Tolleson said undirected funds would be divided among participating teachers.
