Much Obliged-June 10
Thanks to businesses
The Brainerd Area Education Center “Tools for Tomorrow, Technology for Today” class would like to thank all the area businesses that made our Semester of Service possible. Funded by a grant from Youth Service America and State Farm, the class processed electronic waste at Hughes Technology, toured the Crow Wing County Landfill and Brainerd Waste Water Treatment Facility, assisted with the Crow Wing County Soil and Water Conservation District plant sale, worked on a service learning project for JKR Recycling, and helped with a clean-up project at the Habitat ReStore. Throughout the semester, the class processed 600 pounds of e-waste, and donated 120 hours of service to area businesses and projects, while learning about waste, e-waste, and the role waste plays in our community. Special thanks to Elizabeth Hughes (Hughes Technology), Doug Morris (CWC Landfill), Greg Kropp (BPU), Scott Hall (Habitat ReStore) and Jesse LeDoux (JKR Recycling), as well as our local State Farm Agents, Jake Brandt, Paul Gazelka and Laurie Hall. We also wish to thank Christa Miller’s kindergarten class at Lowell and Mrs. Ingebrigtson’s first- through third graders at Discovery Woods Montessori for allowing us to come and talk to them about our project.
