Thursday night, September 7, before the O’Neill girls volleyball Varsity match againt Crofton, a special presentation was made at O’Neill Public High School.

Each year the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, a Monsanto Fund program, offers farmers the opportunity to nominate rural public school districts to compete for merit-based grants to help programs in the area of math and science.

The America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program was established in 2011 and awards a total of $2.3 million in grants to schools annually and since 2011 this Monsato Fund program has given over 9 million dollars to rural public school districts.

Thursday night O’Neill School Board Members Jim Wakefield and Ellen Boshart presented O’Neill Junior-Senior High FFA Sponsor Amanda  Horn and Chapter members Tayte  Jussel and Rosie Neson with a $10,000 check and a plaque.

Following the presentation O’Neill High School Principal Corey Fisher asked all area farmers to stand and were thanked for their continued support of our school and educational programs.  Monsanto was also thanked for their continued support of rural public schools.
