The Business and Education Committee resumed after a few months’ hiatus during the summer months. The committee spent time discussing goals and ideas for 2023/2024 and their continued support for the Reverse Job Fair, Hard Hats and Hotdogs, businesses supporting education awards, and educators’ thank you celebration. The committee has some good ideas on how to support our school district and will send out a survey to our local businesses to explore some new options. Do you know of a local business that supports our education, teachers, and/or schools please contact Christina Petit at to have them recognized.
