Ringling_Brothers_donates.jpgRingling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson visited KIPP WAYS Academy on Wednesday, Feb. 16, to present a donation of $10,000 (average yearly budget excluding teacher salaries) to support the Fine Arts Program at the school.  A fire ravaged this school in December destroying equipment, books and infrastructure. Along with the monetary donation, the Ringmaster also presented tickets to a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show. Kipp Ways Academy now operates at 98 Anderson Ave., N.W.  The circus played  at Philips Arena from Feb. 17-21,  and now goes to the Arena at Gwinnett Center from Feb. 24 – 27.  For ticket information, visit www.ringling.com, call Ticketmaster at 404-249-6400 or visit any Ticketmaster retail location.
