TEF open house called success
By Macel Monthye
The Tiger Educational Foundation (TEF) met Monday, Sept. 10 in Grace Fellowship Hall of United Congregational Church in Mobridge with all members in attendance.
Routine business matters were discussed with Laurie Bauer, treasurer, presenting the financial report, which included many memorial contributions received over the summer months.
Dr. Herb McClellan gave a report on the updating of the Donor Tree. He was fortunate to locate an engraver who still does the kind of work needed to keep all TEF memorials currently displayed.
Numbers were down at the open house held July 3, however, those who attended were very appreciative of the opportunity to tour the new school and enjoyed the visiting. The board appreciates the time taken by Bingo Kindt to conduct the tours.
Macel Monthye reported on the tall tree with the Mary King Larson memorial stone at its base. According to superintendent Tim Frederick, the root system of the tree was damaged during construction and had to be removed. The memorial stone is to be placed in an area being developed on the southeast corner of the high school campus.
The next meeting will be Monday, Oct. 8 at 5 p.m., at UCC.
