MCDONALD'S GRANT AIDS LOCAL SCHOOL PROGRAM

 SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kings Canyon Educational Partnership Foundation (KCEPF) has been awarded a $5,000 grant from Ronald McDonald Childrens Charities, the philanthropic arm of McDonald's Corp.
 The grant will enable the KCEPF -- a special educational program for students challenged in reading, writing and math -- to add a sophisticated graphics computer system and printer, encyclopedia set and other reference books to its resource rooms.
 A check presentation ceremony will be held Wednesday, July 7, at the foundation's district board luncheon meeting at 675 W. Manning Ave., in Reedley. Making the presentation will be local McDonald's owner Mark Ruiz who said, "All of the McDonald's family feels good when we can help a program as worthwhile as this one."
 Kings Canyon School District Resource Specialist Sharyn Brown applied for the grant when she and Resource Development Director Tamoe Nimori observed students challenged by the reading level of the center's outdated encyclopedia set. "This new set is geared to students with learning difficulties," said Brown, "and the computer CD-ROM system will allow kids who are more comfortable with a keyboard and screen to take in the same information and turn in higher-quality reports and papers."
