Exeter-Milligan FCCLA was presented with a
check for $2500 during halftime at the Men's basketball game last week on
behalf of the Monsanto Fund.
Brad Hogan, a representative from Monsanto, presented the donation to Tom Vossler who was selected as the Fillmore County winner for the Monsanto Fund's America's Farmers Grow Communities.
All eligible farmers in the county could enter to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit of their choice. Monasanto has donated more than $3.1 million into rural American through the program. Vossler chose to make the FCCLA program the recipient of his winnings.
Also on hand to present the donation was local Channel seed dealer Travis Due. Receiving the funds were Exeter-Milligan FCCLA Chapter President Erica Yound along with District FCCLA President Rebecca Vossler. Both ladies spoke expressing their gratitude both to Monsanto for the generous donation and especially to Vossler for choosing their program as the recipient of the donation.
Exeter-Milligan Cheerleaders spent Friday afternoon working with elementary students and teaching them several cheers along with some dance moves. The cheer camp participants each got a t-shirt and performed with the Exeter-Milligan cheerleaders at half-time.
Exeter-Milligan graduate Talisa Krejci knew she
had chosen the right career when she recently took a mission trip to
Jamaica to do occupational therapy.
Krejci, a graduate student at the College of St. Mary’s, is working toward her certification in occupational therapy and found this trip was the perfect opportunity to test her skills and gain some experience.
She and seven other occupational therapy students traveled to Kingston, Jamaica to work in five different shelters and an orphanage in the heart of the ghetto of Kingston. Their group was part of a mission trip to assist the work of the Missionaries of the Poor, a monastic order of Brothers.
