Rock County Public Schools is in the process of putting in a new track. The new track project includes a complete new track and new lighting for the football field. The Rock County Board of Education has been budgeting for the track for the last few years.
Outside of district funds we are going to replace the football scoreboard and update the watering system. We would also like to start funding for a new crows nest and bleachers to be installed on the east side of the track.
Please consider a donation of $50 $100, $250, $500 or $1,000 toward the cost of the scoreboard. Rock County Growth, Inc. has offered to help so that your donation can be tax deductible. Donors will be recognized on Friday October 21, 2016 during the home football game with Elkhorn Valley, unless you prefer to remain anonymous. Donors who give at the $1,000 level will be recognized on the football scoreboard. The project is scheduled to be complete by October 2016.

ATTENTION COLLEGE STUDENTS
Rock County Foundation scholarship requests can be made to Jan Foster. 2016 graduates need to provide documentation of full-time college enrollment. 2015 and prior graduates need documentation of full-time enrollment and current GPA of at least 2.5%. Either mail the information to PO Box 581, Bassett, NE or call Jan at 684-3861. Information may also be given to Brandi Hollenbeck at Rock County Public Schools.
The RCHS Foundation has been blessed by your continued support of the educational hopes and dreams of Rock County’s students, faculty, and residents. Four new scholarships will be added to the 2016 RCHS senior application, with over $35,000.00 awarded in May. We are in awe that you have generously identified this Foundation as a secure home for enrichment and college funding for our students. THANK YOU!
In 1971, $2000 would come close to covering a year at UNL. Clearly, educational expenses continue to burden our youth and RCHS Foundation is working hard to open opportunities for students. Undergraduate enrichment has always been a goal of ours and we encourage creative ideas from faculty, students and all patrons. Music camps, FFA trips, cultural or leadership experiences are possibilities for individuals and groups who apply for this type of scholarship. Do you have an idea or desire to fund such an experience?
It is never too early to plan for graduation for specific favorite students, even 5th graders. An Adopt-A-Student account can be set up in a student’s name, and you or anyone can contribute to it all through their school years. $10 or $100. Any amount is accepted. This year these accounts earned 5%. What a wonderfully easy and thoughtful gift for a future RCHS grad!
