The Sanborn County 4-H Shooting Sports program was the recipient of a grant in 2022 through Mitchell Friends of the NRA. The grant gave the program air pistol and air rifle paper targets, silhouette targets, pellets for the air guns and a 3D archery target for a grant amount total of $900. In addition, they were able to raise another $1,000 to support the program through the Mitchell Friends of NRA raffle fundraiser. 

 The annual Mitchell Friends of NRA Banquet, the major fundraiser for the grant program, will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, at the Corn Palace. All are welcome to attend. For more information on tickets, contact Audrey Kneen at 605.999.6384.

Woonsocket School Board Vice President Lisa Snedeker has begun her year-long term as President of the Associated School Boards of South Dakota.

Snedeker takes charge of the 18-member Board of Directors on which she has represented the Southeast Region’s 265 & Under enrollment category since 2018.

For the past three years Snedeker has served as First Vice President and Second Vice President as part of the Association’s Executive Committee, which comprises the leadership team of the ASBSD Board of Directors.

“Lisa’s dedication to public education and enthusiasm to ensure it succeeds for the students, staff and the communities it serves make her a fantastic leader for ASBSD,” ASBSD Executive Director Wade Pogany said.

Snedeker succeeded Eric Stroeder, who now assumes the role of ASBSD Past President, of the Mobridge-Pollock School District.
