As a way to support communities and local schools, the Dollar General corporation selects the top producing stores and provides a donation to area schools. Out of over 17,000 stores, Dollar General #461 in Star City was selected as a top producer. Dollar General #461 selected Star City Middle School as the recipient of the $10,000 grant. Dollar General Regional Director, Chris Bartholomew and District Manager, Kelly Smith, came to SCMS along with Casey Montgomery, sales associate, and Heather Rice, local Dollar General manager to present the check.
