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.
