GREENFIELD – Larry "Rock" Roosa of the McClain High School class of 1955 presented a $1,000 check to McClain High School Principal Jason Potts during the 2019 Greene Countrie Towne Festival Friday, July 19 at the high school.

Roosa said his annual donations to E.L. McClain High School are in recognition of what Edward Lee and Lulu McClain gave to the people of Greenfield 105 years ago, as well as in appreciation to all current staff, faculty and administration.

Roosa, of Newport, Tenn., also thanked Potts for his efforts to promote the annual Edward Lee McClain Day recognition, which will be 1-4 p.m. Sunday, July 21 at the high school. Roosa also had a banner made that MHS students will carry in this year's grand parade on Sunday.

Potts thanked Roosa and his wife, Linda, for the annual donation. He said the funds will go toward the ongoing art restoration project at the high school.

The Greene Countrie Towne Festival, sponsored by the Greenfield Rotary Club, continues July 20-21 in downtown Greenfield.
