This week, the Killeen Independent School District received its largest donation ever, a donation the district said will “greatly impact the lives of local students," according to a news release.

MacKenzie Scott, an Amazon stakeholder and ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, cited the “incredible work” the district does when she made her $18 million donation.

What a nice gift from an woman who obviously wants to give back to communities. It's a shame her $18M is going to end up in KISD's strategic facility fund. Anyone want to bet football stadium upgrades won't be on the agenda soon?
