Lonnie Pruitt and Principal Abbott
Christmas comes early for Crab Orchard Elementary!  

Local business owner and Crab Orchard High School Alum Lonnie Pruitt made a $1,000 donation to the school to be used for providing students with enhanced learning opportunities.  

Mr. Pruitt, owner and operator of Redhead's Redi Mart and longtime COES supporter said that he "just likes to see money go toward helping people and helping kids become better."  On behalf of the entire COES school community, thank you Lonnie!
