Believe Scholarship Challenge completed

A good crowd was on hand at the Stekl Shop near Letcher on Saturday night, March 5, in support of the Tanna Kingsbury Believe Scholarship Challenge Supper and Bean Bag Tournament. An estimated 350 pork loin meals were served.
The Bean Bag Tournament had 64 teams. Winning first place were Cote Hinker and Eric Denning. Second place went to Sarah Morgan and Wyatt Feistner, and third place winners were Tatem Kingsbury and Nathan Effling.
The crowd enthusiastically participated in several other activities, including Bingo, silent and bucket auctions, GoPro raffle, chuck-a-duck competition, 50/50, a game of Heads-or-Tails that was won by Kevin Kingsbury, a roll-over auction of Tanna’s steer, which raised a total of over $9,000 alone, live auctions of two donated hogs and a Coke cooler, a photo booth and a bouncy house.
Students and staff at Sanborn Central submitted entries for the name-the-steer contest, with the second grade class name of “Big Mac” winning with the most votes.
Not surprisingly, the generosity of our extended community was shown. A total of $21,875 was raised during the evening. The matching funds challenge of $50,000 by the Boyd and Dody Hopkins families has now been met. The challenge is complete and all funds will become a permanent part of the Believe Scholarship.
The Believe Scholarship will be administered the same as the Dennis Ross “Get On and Learn” Scholarship in that any graduating senior from Sanborn Central will be granted a scholarship if they wish to further their education.
All in all, it was a very successful evening.
