To the editor:
There are some very negative consequences that come from a down-turned economy, which are felt both directly and indirectly throughout our community.
Kindergarten through 12th-grade education is no different and has felt the effects from the lack of funding in the last three years.
Although, the funding per pupil is lower for the Moffat County School District, there are some new programs that have been recently initiated by three citizen groups that are supporting our kids here in Craig and Moffat County.
Maximum Commitment to Excellence, The Booster Club and Friends of Moffat County Education have all been developed with certain goals in mind that will benefit our students.
These three groups need to be congratulated for stepping up and recognizing that our kids are our future.
Investment of their time in order to support our local school district is a true testament and example of what getting involved and wanting to make a difference is all about.
We applaud these individuals who have the vision and passion to partner with our schools by helping in different capacities.
The Craig City Council would like to take this opportunity to say thank you and we support your efforts as you continue to be advocates for education.
