H & R Block Budget Challenge Grant Recipient
Several high school students at the Sheldon R-8 School participated in the H & R Block Budget Challenge. Those students participating were: Nic Pitcock, Zoey Bray, Logan Lamb, Amy Brzuchoski, Camie Ford, Kash Rook, Brooke Tripp, Bailee Tripp, Marissa Rector, and Devin Jacobs. They chose “Sheldon First Class” for their Team Name.
The students and their teacher, Mrs. Christy Lockard, worked hard and put together a team win for Sheldon. On Tuesday, June 7, 2016, Ms. Blanche Williams, the H & R Block Agent from Nevada, Missouri, presented a H & R Block Challenge Grant to Mrs. Lockard for her and her students hard work. The combined scores for their team were high enough to place them 12th in their group of 2,430 teams throughout the nation. For this great accomplishment H & R Block presented Mrs. Christy Lockard with a $5,000 grant check to be used to continue and enhance the financial literacy curriculum, education materials, workshops, equipment, academic programming, and any other efforts that enhance the betterment and success of your students.
