Chase County Schools received $22,856 in January for use on the CCS track and football field complex from the Imperial Community Foundation, an affiliated fund of the Nebraska Community Foundation.
A campaign was established in 2001 that encouraged donors to show support by purchasing a meter of track. Monies held in a track fund saw positive returns over the years and were recently put to use at the complex.
Superintendent Matt Fisher accepted a plaque to be hung in the school at the Longhorn pep rally held at the outdoor sports complex last Thursday evening. Presented by Lori Pankonin on behalf of ICF, the plaque acknowledges the donors to the fund.
Pankonin emphasized to the students that people of the community care about them and they get behind projects that make a difference.
The following names engraved on the plaque were read:
Gold level: Edward and Sylvia Burke.
Silver level: Adams Bank & Trust and Farmers & Merchants Bank.
Bronze level: John Buckner, Imperial Country Ford, Gerald Yaw.
