“We are representing Graves County Farm Bureau,” said farmer Keith Lowry, accompanied by his grandson, Blain Lowry, while visiting the Graves County Schools central office recently. He continued, “We’re very appreciative of all the educators we have and we want to show our appreciation. So, we brought lunch to the administrators and all 14 schools in the city and county today. I know times are a little bit … awkward, I guess would be an appropriate word. So, it’s time to do something good for the community and we’re glad to do it. We appreciate everybody.”
Graves County Schools Superintendent Matthew Madding responded, “We’re very appreciative of Keith Lowry and the Graves County Farm Bureau. During a time when we don’t have students in our buildings, it can be easy to get a little down because students do a lot to bring us joy and smiles to our faces. A gesture like this reminds us that our community loves and supports us. We’re very thankful for that.”
Graves County Farm Bureau purchased the lunches from A&B BBQ, Café Au Latte, Carr’s Steakhouse, Fristoe’s, Hoskins BBQ, Little Caesar’s, Majestic, Sedalia Restaurant, Snappy Tomato, and Southern Red’s BBQ.
