STEWARDSON COMMUNITY FOUNDATION RECEIVES $2,500 MONSANTO AWARD

Published by admin on February 28th, 2011 - in Uncategorized

The Stewardson Community Foundation is the recipient of a $2,500 award by Monsanto’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities program.  Monsanto is committed to investing in the organizations, schools and civic groups that are important to America’s farmers.  Since its inception in January of last year, Monsanto has provided nearly $1.2 million to non-profit community groups.

The program was open to farmers, age 21 and over, who were actively engaged in farming a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton.  The winning farmer from each county had the opportunity to designate the organization of their choice to receive the award.  This year’s award winner in Shelby County was Kent Walden of Stewardson, who designated the Stewardson Community Foundation as his chosen organization.

The Stewardson Community Foundation is a newly founded organization dedicated to a positive future for Stewardson through business development, improved parks and recreation, youth development, and improved housing and beautification of the village.

The check was awarded on Sunday, February 27 at the Stewardson Town Meeting.  Shown here are Shannon Schultz, a representative of Monsanto, along with Jenny and Kent Walden, and Perrie Richards of the Stewardson Community Foundation.
