skaggs grants

Reeds Spring Middle School students and Gibson Tech EMT students will benefit from Skaggs Legacy Endowment Grants.

The EMT program received $5,000 to cover the student membership fees for HOSA, an organization for future healthcare professionals. The grant also allowed ten students to attend the Missouri HOSA leadership conference in Columbia, where they received training on professionalism, soft skills, and teamwork.

“Receiving this type of support is monumental,” said EMT instructor Lacey Williams. “I believe this will help equip and empower our students to spread their wings and fly into their calling as healthcare professionals.” 

RSMS received $5,000 for its Wolves Den Store. Students earn points for good behavior and can redeem those points in the store for hygiene products, school spirit wear, school supplies, Christmas presents, and crafts. 

“I am so grateful to the Skaggs Foundation for the wonderful gift of $5,000 that we will use to help meet our students' needs,” said Wolves Den Store sponsor Cheryl Gibson.
