HTRS Foundation Donates $200K to North Addition Project

 

(Humboldt, Neb.) - At its July 2014 quarterly meeting, the HTRS Foundation Board of Directors unanimously approved a $200,000 contribution toward the school’s north addition building project.  The board’s decision came following considerable discussion on the $5,095,000 million dollar project for which ground was broken in October.

 

Board president Ron Eis was pleased with the Board’s decision.  Eis stated, “The decision to contribute this amount of money was not an easy one for the Board as we strive hard to be good stewards of the money the Foundation has for its use.  However, it was determined that giving to this project would show our desire to help the school district to grow and expand in a positive manner.” 

 

The Foundation Board has been in operation since 1991 and since that time has provided funding for scholarships, teacher mini-grants, and other school-related projects such as the new gym bleachers in 2007.  In May of 2014, the Foundation awarded $15,900 in scholarships to 15 graduating seniors.  In addition, the Foundation provided over $13,000 toward the teacher mini-grant program.

 

HTRS and its Foundation serve the former Humboldt, Table Rock-Steinauer, Dawson-Verdon, and Southeast Consolidated school districts.  The HTRS Public School Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt foundation.  It is a community-based nonprofit organization exclusively for the benefit of or to carry out the purposes of the HTRS schools.

Sapp Bros Donates $4848.45 & HTRS Public Schools Foundation matches funding to total $10,000 towards HTRS Track & Field runway improvements in Humboldt.

 

 

At the HTRS Public Schools Foundation Quarterly meeting held on Jan. 15th , Virgil Jobman presented the Sapp Bros check of $4848.45 to Sandy Stalder in recognition of Sapp Bros donation of 3 cents per gallon from their Humboldt Operations over a 3 month period last fall.  The HTRS Public Schools Foundation approved matching funds to a total $10,000 towards much needed Track and Field runway improvements at the Humboldt site.

 

To quote Keith Crandall of Sapp Bros Operations – “Sapp Bros Inc. is proud to donate to the HTRS School for the track upgrades. Sapp Bros Inc. is only as good as our customers and our employees and we are thankful to be in the Humboldt area. I personally have interest in track as I held the 880 yd. run record in state of Iowa for a few years. Sapp Bros Inc. is always interested in giving back to the communities we are in business with.”

 

Alumni Please Note - This donation request was initiated by Ruth Drake, Humboldt resident and mother of three Alumni, sending a letter to Lee Sapp requesting a donation to upgrade the HTRS track.  She stated that her Grandson, Will Drake, was a freshman in track and our school was in need of upgrades to be able to skillfully participate in meets.  The Foundation and students wish Ruth a big Thank You for her recommendation.

Philanthropy at work: Local farmer supports Richardson County through America’s Farmers Grow CommunitiesSM

Drought stricken farmers and rural communities receive double funding

 

HUMBOLDT, Neb. (Jan. 15, 2013) - HTRS Public Schools Foundation will be able to expand the numbers of scholarships provided for HTRS seniors thanks to the support of local farmer, Ron Eis, and America’s Farmers Grow Communities.

Sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, which is the philanthropic arm of Monsanto Company, Grow Communities provides farmers in eligible counties the chance to win a $2,500 donation for a local nonprofit organization of their choice.  To further support counties declared natural disaster areas by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) due to drought this year; winning farmers in these counties are able to direct double donations, a total of $5,000.

Richardson County was declared a disaster area by the USDA, giving Ron Eis the opportunity to choose two organizations to receive $2,500 donations. Eis selected the HTRS Public Schools Foundation to receive both donations. The foundation will use the funds to offer scholarships to HTRS seniors who plan to study agriculture or business at the college or university levels.

            “I am happy to donate the money to a cause that will benefit the students and future farmers in our community,” said Eis, who is also president of the board for the foundation.

            This year, the Monsanto Fund will invest nearly $6 million in rural America through Grow Communities, which includes double donations for counties impacted by the historic drought.

In Nebraska, $390,000 is being given across 78 counties.

            America’s Farmers Grow Communities is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund to partner with farmers in helping them positively impact their communities. This program is part of the Monsanto Fund’s overall effort to strengthen rural America.
