Salada's Contribute $9,000
Billy and Kate Salada are the managers of the
Standing Butte Ranch, located in northwestern Stanley County.
Since their arrival three
years ago, the Saladas have been instrumental in supporting the
Stanley County School District application for a Ted Turner
sustainability grant. Each of
the previous two years, the school’s agriculture program has been
awarded a grant from the Turner Foundation.
Together the grants total
$37,000. The money received
has benefited ag programming in the district as well as the local
addition to receiving the two large sustainability grants, the
Salada’s also contributed $9,000 this fall to be used for
student-led initiatives. Shown
here accepting a check from Billy Salada is Terri Mehlhaff,
local student board of high school student directors recommended the
initiative to fund a mobile STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering
and Math) cart for use in the K-5 elementary grades, assure the
continuation of the school’s Trap Shooting Club, support the Fine
Arts department, provide financial assistance to participate in the
Scripps’ Spelling Bee contest and fund a HOSA club (Health
Occupations in Service to America) at the school.

Students from Stanley County School
participated in the school-level competition of the National
Geographic GeoBee on November 29. Eddie Duffy, a 4th
grade student, won first place. The school level competition
is the first round in the annual National Geographic GeoBee, a
geography competition designed to inspire and reward students’
curiosity about the world. Questions cover not only geography,
but also cultures, physical features, history and earth science.
The National Geographic Society developed the GeoBee in 1989 in
response to concern about the lack of geographic knowledge among
young people in the US. Over more than three decades, 120
million students have learned about the world through participation
in the GeoBee. School champions, including Eddie, will take an
online qualifying test; up to 100 of the top test scorers in each
state then become eligible to compete in their State GeoBee.
The winners of the State GeoBees receive an all expenses paid trip
to National Geographic Society headquarters in Washington, D.C.,
next May to participate in the GeoBee national championship,
competing for cash prizes, scholarships and an all-expenses paid
Lindblad expedition to the Galapagos Islands aboard the National
Geographic Endeavor II.
