Donors take Logan underwater vehicle for a swim

Judy and Randy Eddy Sr. recently had the chance to take a dip in the pool at Logan High School — well, more accurately, they spent an hour with students demonstrating the Logan Ranger Underwater Remote Operated Vehicle.

As reported July 19 in the La Crosse Tribune, three students proudly showed off the work of the Logan PLTW-Digital Electronics class under the direction of Steve Johnston, Logan technology education teacher.

The project was made possible by a $1,519.65 Classroom Innovation Grant from the La Crosse Public Education Foundation. That grant was underwritten by proceeds from the Judy and Randy Eddy Sr. Fund, with the grant made in memory of Chris Clements.  The Eddy Fund is one of several endowed funds operated by the foundation.

In the 2013-14 school year, the foundation awarded 23 grants for a total of $43,000.
