Local farmer directs America’s Farmers Grow Communities donation to Wild Rose Schools

Waushara County farmer Chris Sorenson recently won the opportunity to direct a $2,500 donation from the America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, spon-sored by the Monsanto Fund, to the School District of Wild Rose.

The School District of Wild Rose will use the funds to purchase a sander to incorporate into the Technology Engineering Education program.

“I would like to personally thank Mr. Chris Sorenson for nominating the School District of Wild for this award,” said Wild Rose District Administrator Craig Hayes. “We are really look-ing forward to adding the additional piece of equipment to our Technology Engineering Education program. Students will be able to use and enjoy this for many years. This is a great addition to our School District.” 

The Grow Communities program’s purpose is to make a positive impact in farm communities by partnering with farmers to support the causes that are important to them in their communities. Each year, farmers enter for a chance to win a $2,500 donation that they direct to a local nonprofit.
