LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Louisville high school is getting a big boost from home improvement giant Lowe’s.

Iroquois High School was awarded a $25,000 grant Tuesday morning. School officials said the money will be used to create learning and recreation spaces for students - including an amphitheater for outdoor learning and a multipurpose field.

“There's no other school in Jefferson County with the capacity to design and create but also construct a facility such as this,” Chris Perkins, Iroquois High School principal, said.

The grant will also go to support the ace program at the school which will support mentoring initiatives for students.

“These programs and projects help students build a cognitive thinking and problem solving ability that prepare them for graduation and beyond,” JCPS superintendent Dr. Donna Hargans said.
