Lake Wales, Florida – On March 23, 2022, Victory Ridge Academy (VRA) was awarded funding from Mountain Lake Community Service (MLCS). All funding received from Mountain Lake Community Service will go towards supporting Victory Ridge’s Transportation Safety Program.
In order to protect our students from the danger of oncoming traffic, Victory Ridge Academy will purchase Safe Fleet’s Predictive Stop Arm Systems for our buses. This advanced technology will alert students in the case that any speeding vehicles are nearby while they are entering and exiting our school buses.
Both staff and students at Victory Ridge Academy would like to thank Mountain Lake Community Service, Inc. for their generous donation and continued support over the years!
The mission of Mountain Lake Community Service (MLCS) is “to help make a difference in the lives of people in the Lake Wales community.” The MLCS Board in turn performs due diligence regarding each grant request received from non-profit organizations before awarding funds. MLCS, through the generous involvement of Mountain Lake members, annually provides grants to over 20 local non-profits to help improve health care, education, literacy, the arts, childcare and more.
