We've been enjoying a series on Ranch heroes via our Facebook page throughout May.
5/29 This week's hero: Suzanne Hartley and Robbin Adams, high school staff
As the school year comes to a close, we want to recognize our outstanding school staff who have worked tirelessly to create and teach specialized curriculum catered to the needs of our students. The love and attentiveness these two are able to pour in day in and day out with a low student-teacher ratio is what transforms the classroom experience for our students, enabling many to experience academic success, often for the first time.
5/15 This week's hero: Olivia Crissman, residential volunteer & Liberty University online student
Though Olivia had come on as a residential volunteer primarily in the Food Service department, she ended up getting a lot more than she had bargained for. When our previous Food Service Manager stepped down, Olivia willingly stepped in, ensuring that food was procured and menus planned. Thanks, Olivia, for your cheerful service!
5/8 This week's hero: Chris Bierwagen
Last year after Zard Excavating came out and leveled our athletic field, we hit a number of setbacks in proceeding with this project. Once we received the all clear, Chris, retired 4th gen commercial farmer, was at the ready to see the project through. Chris has come out with his equipment multiple times this week to cultivate and seed the field. Now we wait and watch the grass grow!
5/1 This week's hero: Adrian Cummings
In response to his pastor's exhortation (Crossroads Church) to serve the local community this week, Adrian took a couple of days off work to come and do some specialized maintenance work on our property (at a safe distance). Adrian has also ridden in the Agony Ride four times!
