Thanks for helping Earle Jamieson High School

Earle Jamieson High School has a new concrete basketball and volleyball court, and the students at EJ have a new reason to believe their community supports them and cares about them. Our sincerest thanks go out to an incredible group of volunteers – headed up by Mike Bratton and his colleagues from the Twin Cities Church’ congregation – who gave up precious personal time on a cold, wet weekend in January to build more than a sport court for Earle Jamieson. They also helped build productive students and citizens. We thank them for their donations and their labor. Most of all, we thank them for being positive role models for our kids. We extend our deepest appreciation to:

Mike Bratton (State Farm Insurance), David Matson (DMCE), Tim Brady (Tru Line Builders, Inc.), John Olsen (Gold & Green Equipment Rentals & Sales, Inc.), Orson Hansen (Hansen Brothers), Mike Seghezzi (Seghezzi Enterprises), Jeff Heilmann (Twin Cities Church), John King (American Concrete Pumping) and Jim Adams (Ray Morgan).

I also want to share that one of our EJ students, Matt Jennings, gave up his weekend to assist the adult volunteers and was recognized for his hard work with a summer job offer from DMCE. What a great life lesson!
