Graves County High School agriculture teacher Richard Horn was a leader in the school’s Thursday, Feb. 15, community-wide fundraiser. The career and technical education students and staff prepared, sold, and – in some cases – delivered 500 grilled chicken dinners at $10 each throughout Graves County. That night, students presented a check for $5,000 to Marshall County High School to benefit victims of the recent shooting there.
Horn added details and thanks to several people who helped in various ways with the project. “Pilgrim’s Pride donated the chicken and Crop Production Services of Sedalia sponsored the supplies and the sides,” he said. “Numerous community members helped with the cooking of the chicken and preparation of meals… Audrey Allen, Kent Parm, and the Guthrie Brothers, to name a few. There were several others, too. From the sales of the meals, donations from individuals, and the Graves County FFA, the students raised $5,600. I am extremely proud of our students and the community. We are truly blessed.”
