David Jones recognizes citizen support for schools

'Ask not what your school district can do for you. Ask what you can do for Adair County Schools' - To paraphrase President John F. Kennedy.
The full school board report for April 21, 2016 is now being prepared for posted. Several photo outtakes are already online.
David Jones, Adair County Schools Maintenance Director, recognized an unselfish and generous act at last night's meeting of the Adair County Fiscal Court. "I just can't let this go by," he said. "When our tractor tore up," he said, "Charles Giles, the Mahindra dealer, insisted on sending us a loaner." He said that his crews now have some 100 acres to mow, and with end-of-school activities reaching a peak in April and May, keeping the grounds looking good is of highest importance.

Jones said that when he asked what the District would owe, Mr. Giles told him he wouldn't accept any payment for it. "It's the least I can do for the schools," Mr. Jones reported the benefactor saying. The recognition came at the April 21, 2016 regular session of the board. - EW
