Centennial Middle School honors donor whose $100 gift helped win $20,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket

On Give to the Max Day 2014, Marjorie Pehl Wood donated $100 to Centennial Middle School in Lino Lakes, giving what she could to help support young people in her community. Later that day, her donation was randomly selected by GiveMN to receive a $20,000 Super-Sized Golden Ticket, sponsored by the Bush Foundation, a shock to both Wood and Centennial Middle School Principal Bob Stevens.

In January, nearly 14 months after winning the Golden Ticket, Centennial Middle School held a grand opening for their new Learning Commons, named in Wood’s honor. North Metro TV was on hand to catch Wood’s reaction when she saw the new space for the first time.
