Local foundation encourages youth to spread their wings and consider coming back

As president and valedictorian of the CCS Class of 2018, Kayla Schilke, center, represents the class in receiving a mailbox from Elna Johnson and Lori Pankonin, representatives of the Imperial Community Foundation Fund. Each class member received a personalized mailbox with a red star showing where Imperial is on a Nebraska map. One side shows “Always remember your roots” while the other side states “Your hometown cares.” The message to the students is that the community encourages them to go spread their wings but if they ever want to come back, they’ll be welcomed.
