Tiger Education Foundation plans open house

By Macel Monthye

The Tiger Educational Foundation (TEF) board voted to host an open house on Tuesday, July 3, 2012 when they met Feb. 13 at Grace Fellowship Hall of United Congregational Church in Mobridge.

The high school commons area has been reserved for the event, which will include refreshments and tours of the new school from 1 to 3:30 p.m. CJ Glader, Macel Monthye and Nancy Hepper will be in charge of arrangements.

An unintentional error was made when checking terms of office for the TEF board. Doug Heil’s first 3-year term had expired and was not listed for re-election. The matter has since been taken care of and Heil has been re-elected to a second term.

Laurie Bauer, treasurer, presented the gift acceptance policy for approval. The board voted to accept the document and an official copy has been filed along with the newly revised bylaws.

Bauer gave the financial report showing a checkbook balance of $8,227.89, a Paypal account of $100.25, and the investment account of $43,208.45 for a total of $51,536.59. A bill for the TEF’s new corporate seal was allowed in the amount of $36.65 and a bill for $193.20 to cover advertising. She also reported on the annual South Dakota Community Fund statement that provides TEF with information on scholarship monies available for distribution.

A report was given by Travis Svihovec on the Second Chance Raffle, a fundraiser being conducted by TEF for undergrad grants. Tickets are currently available from board members.

The balance of the meeting was spent outlining stories and pages for the spring issue of Tiger Tracks.

The next regular meeting will be held on March 12, 2012, 5 p.m., at the UCC.
