During its Tuesday night meeting, the Montgomery Area School Board was presented with a $10,000 check from American Legion Post No. 251 and approved seven varsity coaches for the 2012-13 school year.
Jack Dudek and Glenn Crossley, members of the legion, presented the check. The money will be used to fund an internet cafe.
Superintendent Daphne Ross and several students attended the October meeting of the legion. There, they outlined Montgomery's plan for a new internet cafe.
"They came in and described the idea behind the internet cafe, and outlined the devices that would be needed to make this program successful," Dudek said.
As a result of the presentation, the Legion decided to donate the full $10,000 needed to fund the Internet cafe, which will be an extension of the school's library.
"We're excited that we're in a position where we can donate to such a wonderful cause," Dudek said.
Ross outlined the function of the cafe.
"We want this to be a place where students can work online in a relaxed, coffee shop atmosphere. We're hoping that the cafe will function like a commons area for the students," Ross said.
She added that the school was hoping to sell Montgomery apparel and souvenirs out of the student-run cafe.
The school board also approved the following varsity coaches for the 2012-13 school year:
Craig Weaver, girls basketball: $5,681
Sherry Weaver, assistant girls basketball: $3,055
Junior Parrish, boys basketball: $2,000
Joseph Stover, assistant boys basketball: $2,850
