Thank you - 4.7.12

— ON BEHALF of myself, board members, school advisors, chief judges, judges, and students, I wish to thank you for your participation as a financial contributor at our 51st Muskogee Regional Science and Engineering Fair held Feb. 28-29 at the Muskogee Civic Center.

This event provided an invaluable opportunity for students engaged in the Muskogee Regional Science and Engineering Fair to share their skills and scientific abilities.

The students deeply appreciated the interest that you and people from business, industry, educational institutions, and community members showed in their future. They appreciated the time and expertise that the judges personally devoted to judging their student projects.

We all felt good about the excitement that was generated and about the raised expectations of the participants. I’m certain that better teaching and better student performance in the science area will show greater results in the future.

Everyone who was involved appreciated your effort in contributing the funds, especially during this period of severe financial constraints.

Our thanks go to Advance Workzone Services; Holloway Updike & Bellen; Judge Mike and Trude Norman; Ross and Barbara Staggs; Charlie’s Chicken; Ruth Kelly Studio; Love Bottling Company; Muskogee Marble & Granite; Mahylon’s; Advantage Controls; Griffin Holdings; Yaffe Iron & Metal Company; Cheryl Hallum; Karla Rice; D.M.D. Casey G.
