Jimmy Fal­lon do­nates $100K to high school art pro­gram

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Jimmy Fal­lon has do­nated $100,000 to help fund the art pro­gram at the high school he at­tended, with some of the money go­ing to­ward the school’s TV stu­dio. The host of NBC’s “Tonight Show” is a 1992 grad­u­ate of Sauger­ties High School in up­state New York. Fal­lon tells The As­so­ci­ated Press in a state­ment that he’s glad to be able to give some­thing back. He adds: “And if any­one there wants to re­turn the favour with a statue of me or some­thing, I’m to­tally cool with that, too.” While there’s no word on a statue, dis­trict Su­per­in­ten­dent Seth Turner thanked Fal­lon for the gift and joked that he’s will­ing to com­pletely elim­i­nate Fal­lon’s dis­ci­plinary record in re­turn.
