Anniversary challenge

Anniversary challenge

For the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation (BPSF) 25th anniversary class challenge, the BHS classes of 2013-2019 washed cars at Mills Honda on Washington Street in Brainerd. A success, 54 cars were washed and free-will donations were collected from the public. One hundred percent of all funds will be used in the 4A (Academics, Activities, Arts and Athletics) grant program to Independent School District 181.

The Brainerd Public Schools Foundation would like to thank Mills Honda and their customers, Nikki Harmer and the organizers, the alumni and student volunteers, and all of the community members who participated in this great opportunity! The 25th anniversary challenge funds raised are over $50,000!

The mission of the Brainerd Public Schools Foundation is to support the students and teachers of ISD 181 by connecting alumni and our community. The foundation assists in enhancing learning opportunities in the areas of academics, activities, the arts, and athletics through sustainable scholarships and grants.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
