Samuel L. Jackson funds Orchard Knob Elementary

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – Actor Samuel L. Jackson grew up, and went to school in Chattanooga.

That’s why he wants to make sure future generations get the help they need in the classroom.

Jackson recently handed out donations to several schools, including Orchard Knob Elementary.

In a video posted earlier this year, the actor talked about his time in the Scenic City.

“I’m doing that because I’m a proud graduate of Riverside High School in Chattanooga.”

“We all graduated on time, nobody dropped out. We supported each other and our teachers supported us. I loved my education in the Chattanooga school system.”
