The Power to Make a Difference
Katie Klinksick, Rich Hill High School band and music teacher, was selected to receive Osage Valley Electric Cooperative’s Influential Educator Award. In addition to the award, she received a $250 gift card.
Ms. Klinksick was nominated by Rich Hill High School student, Izetta Person. Izetta was selected as one of four finalists in the Osage Valley Youth Tour Essay Contest and will attend the Washington DC Youth Tour in June. Each finalist was asked to name the educator with the most impact on their educational journey.
The Osage Valley Youth Tour Essay Contest program consists of an essay and an interview. The contest not only provides four finalists with a trip to Washington DC or Jefferson City but also strives to build character, confidence, and compassion through the experiences and speakers on the trip. These students are the leaders of tomorrow and Osage Valley wants to acknowledge the educators that encouraged them along the way.
Congratulations Ms. Klinksick and Izetta!

We have applied with the Bates County Commission for American Rescue Plan Funds to help the district start a daycare program. There are several teachers with little ones or expecting that can no longer find childcare in Rich Hill since all providers have closed since the COVID shutdown. We know there will be a few teachers who will have to resign if there is no childcare available. Since this is a COVID caused issue, we have applied for $287,408 to provide a facility, equipment, and first year staffing expenses to help us get up and running at a reasonable daily rate for staff. Open spots after staff would be available to working community members at a reasonable cost. The district would expand its daycare and preschool program according to demand from the community to provide working parents seamless care from birth to 5 years old. We thank the Commission for their work in distributing available funds. We think this would be a huge benefit to many families in the Rich Hill community and would benefit all of the students in the district as we would be able to keep our quality teachers by providing childcare to them.
