The action on the field at Fulton High School on Friday night was not all about football.
Just before the homecoming game against Boonville, the school received a $25,000 check from the Monsanto Fund as part of its America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program.
Math teacher Cindy Cravens, who wrote the grant application, said she was “super excited” when she was told Fulton had been selected as this year’s recipient.
“I didn’t expect to win, but you always hope for it,” Cravens said.
According to a spokesperson with the Monsanto Fund, grant applicants are judged on three criteria: strength of the application, need and community support.
