It's the season of giving back to those who help with the education system.

Jeff Kuntz, chairperson of the Community Focus Committee, presented checks to eight individuals, who accepted them on behalf of the organizations they represent.

Checks are distributed through the Punxsutawney Education System several times a year and give money to organizations from which students benefit.
