I traveled to Pierre this last week to put in sometime relationship building and education for future projects. I visited with a Representative who updated a group of economic development professionals about what is going on in Pierre and he even gave us a look into “behind the scenes” into a few bills.
When we think of back -to-school, we don’t think of Valentine’s Day. Usually, our first thoughts are when summer is about over in August and buying school supplies. 2022 has different plans for Miller School District. This unusual back-to-school season, I want our entire community to pack three school supplies; Patience. Flexibility. Grace. Last week, we got a message from the Miller School District asking to be patient while the school comes up with a plan. Let’s give them that respect.
Since the fall of 2014, Hand County has enjoyed its Community Center. The theme surrounding the Center has been donations and volunteer work. It all began when the Miller School gave the land and the old elementary building complex to On Hand Development Corporation for $1 for the purpose of developing a Community Center. With that gift, the On Hand Board of Directors immediately went to work securing manpower and design teams to turn an old school into a beautiful, functional complex that benefits not only Hand County citizens but surrounding businesses and families.
