THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Crivitz, Coleman High Schools Each Receives $2500 Checks
Crivitz High School and Coleman High School will now be able to better serve the community thanks to the support of local farmer, Patricia Kaufman, and America's Farmers Grow Communities.
Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice. To further support counties declared natural disaster areas by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) due to the drought this year, winning farmers in these counties are able to direct double donations, a total of $5,000.
Marinette County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Kaufman the opportunity to choose two organizations to receive $2,500 donations. She selected Crivitz High School and Coleman High School.
I'm pleased to support programs in both of these high schools in our community. They work hard to provide students with a quality education and programs, said Kaufman.
Crivitz High School Principal Jeff Baumann explained the donation will be used to enhance reading enrichment programs. We plan to purchase computerized reading assistance hardware and software to help students develop better reading skills, he said.
This money will be used to purchase new equipment in our weight and fitness room, which both our student body and the community use daily, said Coleman High School Principal Kelly Casper.
