Saginaw School Receives Meemic Grant!

Charlie Gentner of Gentner Insurance Agency in Mayville presented teacher Barry Wittig of Valley Lutheran High School with a Meemic Foundation Grant. Barry’s grant will be used to buy materials (metal detector, shaker screens, shovels, etc.) for an Archaeological Research and Dig project with his History classes. He and his students plan on researching the property at Valley Lutheran using the metal detector, and once they locate a spot, will start to dig and discover what might be on the property. His classes are also using the history of Saginaw County to help understand what else may have been located on the property before the high school was built to gain a better insight as to what they may find when digging.
 
Congratulations, Barry!
