Exeter-Milligan traveled to Weeping Water Friday night to meet the Indians on their home turf.  The Indians got on the board first with 9:41 left in the first quarter but that was the only time they got anywhere close to their end zone.
With two more Timberwolves back on the healthy side of the roster, the sidelines weren't as empty for the team this week. 
Spencer Pribyl found Jackson Beethe wide open and sent him a perfect pass that Beethe carried halfway down the field untouched into the end zone. Next to put up points was Colton Bossaller with six before Pribyl kept the ball for six more.  The board was sitting at 20-6 when Pribyl headed into the end zone again.
Joey Bartu had a turn for six at the end zone along with Seth Maxson and Max Zeleny before Trever Zelenka capped off the scoreboard with six more and Maxson add the two points on a pass from Pribyl.  The final score - 58-6.  The Timberwolves will play Parkview Christian Friday night for Homecoming in Milligan.

Exeter-Milligan Update: FCCLA Training

Exeter-Milligan FCCLA students gain valuable training at Fall Leadership Workshop

Kearney, Nebraska-   7 FCCLA Officers and student leaders from the Exeter-Milligan FCCLA Chapter recently attended the Nebraska Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America Fall Leadership Workshop.  This annual event was held this year at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds in Kearney, Nebraska and featured over 470 students from all corners of Nebraska.  Attending the workshop were: Jaiden Papik, Kaitlyn Vavra, Katie Mounce, Daisy Kanode, Caitlin Murphy, Tara Mueller and Hannah Horne.

All students at this event heard from members of the State Officer Team, the State Peer Officer Team, and other chapter leaders about state and national programs, leadership development, and chapter management.  This year’s conference took on a new task of providing more specialized training options for a variety of FCCLA members focusing on National Programs ranging from Financial Fitness to Career Connections.  Three Tracks, Chapter Leader, Next Level Leader, and New Member were offered to welcome, lead, and challenge members.

A highlight for students was hearing from keynote speaker Hunter Radenslaben.  A 2017 graduate of Waverly High School, Hunter has already been recognized as a professional speaker and Twitter guru. As a 12-year-old, Hunter created the successful Twitter account turned media company, Athlete Nation, that now has over 70,000 followers. His passion for sharing how young people can leverage their power on social media to change the world for the better and developing positive family relationships were evident in his presentation. He emphasized that student’s involvement in Career and Technical Student Organizations, like FCCLA or other student activities encourage them to grow their future potential. This message was at the heart of the leadership training provided as well. 

As members of the chapter bring this information and training home, they are looking forward to implementing it in a variety of ways. Members are excited to try some of the fundraising and community service projects suggested.

FCCLA is a dynamic and effective national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through Family and Consumer Sciences education.  Nebraska FCCLA has more than 3,000 members in 100 chapters across the state.  For more information about FCCLA, please visit

First Grade Happenings at Exeter-Milligan

Sara Lincoln’s first graders have been busy learning about laws and leaders and holidays.  Earlier this month they were able to invite their grandparents in to visit their classroom and spend the afternoon working on activities together.  Grandparents Day was created to celebrate the special people we have in our lives.  There was a great turn out and we were so thankful everyone could make it.  Our next topic in Social Studies has been laws and leaders.  A State Trooper was able to come into the classroom and speak to the First Graders about the laws we have and why they are important.  The students loved being able to ask question and learn more about the people who keep us safe.

Rain Halts Harvest

Many area farmers have started harvesting beans and corn with the seed corn harvest nearly complete.  The overnight rain we had has put a halt to that progress.  Once things dry out toward the end of the week please be extra careful and aware of large equipment and trucks traveling on our highways and byways.
