    $1 million raised by Sonic Drive-In’s 10th annual Fall Voting campaign will be donated to several classrooms in the Fort Worth Independent School District.

    The campaign was completed through Sonic’s Limeades for Learning program which has been a longtime supporter of public school teachers.

    "Through Limeades for Learning, teachers from all over the country can submit project requests to philanthropic partner DonorsChoose.org for the classroom resources they need to create an inspiring learning environment for their students," said Christi Woodworth, vice president for public relations for Sonic. "Sonic is proud to support public school teachers like those in the Fort Worth Independent School District, who make a positive impact in their students' lives and in their communities every day."

    The Fall Voting campaign, which took place from Oct. 1-28, allowed Sonic fans to vote daily for inspiring teacher projects at LimeadesForLearning.com. The project that earned the most votes received a piece of Sonic’s $1 million donation.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
