Victory Ridge Academy receives a grant from Mountain Lake Community Service, Inc.


Lake Wales, Florida – On March 23, 2022, Victory Ridge Academy (VRA) received funding from the Mountain Lake Community Service (MLCS). All funds received from Mountain Lake Community Service will be used to support the Victory Ridge Transportation Safety Program.

In order to protect our students from the danger of oncoming traffic, Victory Ridge Academy will purchase Safe Fleet’s predictive stop arm systems for our buses. This state-of-the-art technology will alert students in the event that speeding vehicles are nearby as they enter and exit our school buses.

The staff and students of Victory Ridge Academy would like to thank Mountain Lake Community Service, Inc. for their generous donation and continued support over the years!

MLCS, through the generous involvement of Mountain Lake members, annually awards grants to more than 20 local nonprofit organizations to help improve health care, education, literacy, the arts, child care children and more.
