Albritton dropped off the checks recently at each school, which were three of 13 schools in his district to receive the funds. Four local libraries received checks as well.

Albritton said the money comes from the Community Grant Funds, which allows him to give back to local schools each year.

Albritton said the funds have no strings attached, and that each school can use the money any way the see fit. The amounts aren’t always the same, but this year’s check was much bigger than 2021.
