Business deserves recognition
Roxann Edwards sends out a cheer to Kokomo Metal Fabricators for their service and generosity:
“Kokomo Metal Fabricators has helped us out numerous times welding our kitchen chairs so that we did not have to buy new ones.
They always charged very little, but the last time we had a chair welded, the owner suggested instead of paying him we should be especially generous to our hard working server the next time we ate out.
We feel that this was such a nice thing for him to say and we followed through on our promise to him. When you find a business person who is really caring about others we feel they should receive recognition.”
Science fair at IU Kokomo a success
Emily Bargerhuff sends out this cheer to everyone who helped with this year’s Howard County Science Fair:
“The 50th annual Howard County Science Fair was held at IU Kokomo on Feb. 15. Students, teachers, parents, judges, benefactors, and everyone else who was involved should be commended for the difference they helped make in the lives of the students who participated.
There were 21 Senior Division exhibits and 69 students in the Junior Division from elementary and middle schools throughout Howard County. Volunteer judges listened to each student explain the logical, cognitive, scientific theory they used to guide them through their projects as they proved or disproved their original theories.
Hopefully, this feedback helped the students prepare for future science fairs (regional, state, and international).
Due to the generosity of the sponsors, $4,400 was awarded in prize money to the top 10 junior and top 10 senior division winners. A big thank you to the sponsors: Haynes International, Inc., Janet and Mark Comerford, Bucheri McCarty & Metz LLP Certified Public Accountants, Erik’s Chevrolet, Inc., Newlon Metals, Inc., Rotary Club of Kokomo, Stan and Jody Ortman, The Windmill Grill, The Wyman Group, Charles and Sandy Sponaugle, Emily Bargerhuff, Bob and Marcia Gillette, IU Kokomo Chancellor, Sue Sciame-Giesecke, IU Kokomo School of Sciences faculty, staff, and students, and the IU Kokomo Physical Plant staff.”
