The Senior Girls Tea is an annual event that has taken place in the Lutheran-Methodist church for over 60 years. Each year, the girls in the senior class at Woonsocket High School are invited to the church for some inspiration to help them remember the importance of Christ in their lives as they prepare to go out on their own after high school. This was the first time the senior tea was held in the newly constructed church.

Madison Moody of Sanborn Central was one of the nine recipients to receive the fourth annual Legends for Kids Scholarship. The $5,000 scholarship is awarded to high school student-athletes who show leadership in sports, school and community.

Each year, Central Electric Cooperative sponsors up to eight area high school juniors to attend the National Rural Electric Youth Tour in Washington, D.C in June.

Among this year’s recipients is Megan Linke of Woonsocket, daughter of Henry and Paula Linke. 

The representatives will join more than 1,500 students from across the country to tour Washington, D.C. They will meet with South Dakota’s Congressional Delegation and have the opportunity to watch history come alive as they explore the museums, memorials and monuments.

Central Electric sponsors the trip to support our local youth as tomorrow’s leaders and community members. One recipient from each director district may be selected based on an essay submission.
