The Boonville R-1 Education Foundation held their second annual Donor Campaign Dinner on Thursday evening.

Held at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 1515 Radio Hill Road, the event featured a keynote address from Sarah Reesman, MU's executive associate athletic director.

Also a native of Boonvile and graduate of Boonville High School, Reesman serves as the administrative liaison for men's and women's basketball, swimming, diving, wrestling and volleyball. She also oversees the department's equity, diversity and inclusion efforts.

Formed in 2010, the Boonville R-1 Education Foundation was organized to raise funds to support, foster and promote the growth and well-being of the Boonville R-1 School District.

"The event was very successful," said Skip Jaeger, chairman of the development committee for the foundation board. "We had about 172 people there."

He praised Reesman for her excellent speech, which outlined the experiences she had with her father, who was once on the school board, and the struggles they had.

President of the foundation Bruce Quinlan presented seven grants at the dinner, and the teachers who assisted the students in filling out the grants were honored.

Ken Hirlinger served as emcee for the event.
