Second Chance Raffle funds grants, scholarships
By Macel Monthye
Firming up plans for a Second Chance Raffle was the main focus of the Monday, Feb. 11, business meeting of the Tiger Educational Foundation (TEF) at the fellowship hall of United Church of Christ.
Doug Heil, Travis Svihovec and Laurie Bauer presented the discussion points from their Jan. 23 commitee meeting to the full TEF board. Members agreed to hold this fundraiser for the second year in order to increase opportunities for undergraduate grants and scholarships. Herb and Joyce McClellan will be in charge of printing the tickets.
Further information and date of the event is forthcoming.
A correction was made in regard to TEF scholarship applications. Entries are due to Jolaine Bain, school guidance counselor, no later than Feb. 22 (not March 22).
Laurie Bauer, treasurer, presented the fiscal year and supplemental financial reports, as well as the monthly report. The checking account has a balance of $9,911.81, the Paypal account is at $7,677.05, and the investment account is $45,633.19, for a total of $63,222.05. Membership in the South Dakota Community Fund is at $159,079.24.
Members discussed whether or not to have an open house in the commons area of the high school during Fourth of July activities. Since the holiday falls in the middle of the week this year, it was decided to only have tours of the new school. Bingo Kindt of the Mobridge School Board will oversee tours from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 2 and 3. Alumni are invited to take the tours, especially those who are returning to Mobridge for the first time since the school was completed.
The remainder of the meeting was spent going over an outline for the spring issue of Tiger Tracks and some assignments were made for articles.
The next regular meeting will be held Monday, March 11, at 5 p.m., at UCC.
