On Wednesday, September 9, 2020, the McCarthy/Vogt family donated $25,000 to Dr. William H. Horton Elementary School in memory of their fourteen year old daughter, Virginia McCarthy.

As per the family’s request, the donation will be used to purchase $20,000 of technology equipment (chromebooks, smart boards, and a robotics table), and $5,000 will be utilized for robotics supplies, school uniforms, and backpacks.

Virginia’s parents described her as one who deeply cared about others and believed in providing equitable opportunities to those in need. Newark Public Schools would like to sincerely thank the McCarthy/Vogt family for their generous donation to the students of Dr. William H. Horton Elementary School.
