5/15/2013 Spring for Scholars raises funds for Ridge View graduates
The 4th annual Spring for Scholars Ridge View student scholarship fund-raising event was held May 1 with 130 students, preschool through 12th grade, participating.
Due to the weather, the event was held at the Lohff-Schumann Memorial Community Center. Biking and walking the trail were planned but cancelled due to weather. Instead, students participated in carnival and sporting games.
The Galva-Holstein Scholarship Fund organized the event to help promote and encourage students to pursue their educational dreams after high school graduation
Spring for Scholars began with students asking for sponsorship before the event. Students who turned in a packet by the deadline also received a t-shirt. The event and t-shirts were sponsored by area businesses:
$250 level: Community Bank, Holstein Ida-Grove Veterinary Clinic, United Bank of Iowa Galva and Holstein, Prism Marketing, Goettsch Trucking
