District and state basketball competition is underway and many wrestlers have had their tickets punched to participate at the state wrestling meets. And again this month several senior students are being recognized by the faculty at Adel DeSoto Minburn High School for outstanding achievement in specific areas. Businesses in our local area then make a contribution to the ADM Scholarship Foundation to honor these students.


The following students have attained this recognition for February.

Kiwanis: Amber Gehring and Katerina Meadowcroft


Fine Arts: Seth Entriken and Emily Ahrens (Academic Decathalon) — Lincoln Savings Bank

All the contributions given to the Foundation are invested and the income is used to provide scholarships to graduating seniors of the ADM School District going on to post-secondary education. Over $650,000 has been given in scholarships since the Foundation’s inception in 1985.
