Sheryl Crow donates 20k to high school
Sheryl Crow has donated $21,600 to her high school.
The 53-year-old singer returned to her hometown of Kennett, Missouri, to surprise the teachers at her alma mater, Kennett High School, with the donation for classroom supplies.
Announcing that she was "adopting" all of the teachers at the school through AdoptAClassroom.org with a $600 donation each, Sheryl - who previously worked as a music teacher - said: "I know first-hand how much hard work goes into being a teacher, but I also know how big of an impact teachers have on the lives and futures of their students. Thanks to AdoptAClassroom.org and the financial support of Farmers Insurance, we were able to make a meaningful difference for the amazing teachers at Kennett High School while also showing viewers of the 'TODAY' show just how easy it can be to do the same for teachers in their own communities."
Sheryl was joined at the school by 'TODAY' show correspondent Jenna Bush Hager, along with Representatives from AdoptAClassroom.org and Farmers Insurance.
