Recycling program to benefit Moffat County schools

Axis Steel Inc. Fabrication & Recycling is sponsoring a PAC fundraiser for Moffat County School District. Starting April 22, Earth Day, parents can bring recyclable metal materials to local schools both to get rid of them and to contribute to the cause, with Axis donating the value of any collected goods back to the schools. The school that brings in the most will receive a $500 bonus.

The program runs through May 9.

Acceptable items range from small aluminum cans and bits of scrap metal to appliances, lawnmowers, exercise equipment, trampolines and more. Items such as junk cars and batteries can be brought to Axis at 802 E. Second Place.

Hazardous materials like explosives, oil filters, items containing gasoline or diesel fuel, sealed barrels will not be accepted. Consult with a professional on how to dispose with things like these.

For more information, contact your child’s school or Axis Steel at 970-824-3256.

High school FBLA team to attend state competition

Moffat County High School will send six of its Future Business Leaders of America members to the state level. Bob Meyers, Aubrey Campbell, Elisa Teeter, Conner Kopsa, Katelyn Peroulis and Landon Weis first qualified for the competition at districts in Grand Junction in February, demonstrating knowledge in accounting, business law cyber security and other relevant subjects.

The state tournament will take place April 27 to 29 in Vail. Winners will move on to the national level in Nashville this summer.

“The fact that these students made it to a state event speaks about the success of our business program as a whole,” said Teeter, the president for MCHS’ DECA and FBLA groups. “Qualifying for a state competition reflects on all of the members’ growth and skills.”
