Ridgedale Local Schools received a grant through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources for $7500 with Mid Ohio Energy Cooperative supplying some matching funds of $2000. Mrs. Guthrie organized, wrote the grants, and worked with ODNR to provide the training for the instructors to become certified in August. The money arrived in December 2017 and was up and running in the Ridgedale AgriScience program and the Physical Education classes in February and March with their local competitions in the respective areas. Instructors trained were Kris Guthrie, Cherie Leach, Kyle Hamrick, Lynetter Thiel, Kacie Ballenger along with 2 seniors Cole Brown and Madalyne Geyer. Ridgedale Local Schools received 3 different Archery sets for the AgriScience program, the Elementary, and the Jr/ Sr High School Physical Education classes. Thank you to Ohio Department of Natural Resources and Mid Ohio Energy Cooperative for providing our students this opportunity to expand our students experiences.
