OTTAWA, KS – SparkWheel is thrilled to announce that it has been awarded a generous grant of $6,000 from BMO Harris Bank N.A. to support its programming at Ottawa Middle and High School.

"This grant will enable us to continue providing vital resources and support services to Ottawa students, empowering them to overcome challenges and thrive academically."

The $6,000 grant from BMO Harris Bank will directly contribute to SparkWheel's efforts in Ottawa, ensuring that students have access to the resources and support they need to succeed both inside and outside the classroom.
