A $6,000 check was presented to representatives of the ADM Scholarship Foundation Dollars for Scholars organization recently.

Approximately 400 participants ran the 5k run during Adel’s annual Sweet Corn Festival to benefit the local foundation which grants scholarships each year to graduating Adel-DeSoto-Minburn High School students going on to post secondary education.

The ADM Scholarship Foundation, organized 30 years ago, has awarded 394 scholarships, totalling over $370,000 to deserving students.
