Aanika Anderson (Ashby/Brandon-Evansville Girls Track and Field)
By Craig Olson - Ashby, MN
Junior Aanika Anderson of the Ashby/Brandon-Evansville girls track and field team is the Olson Oil Company Athlete of the Week.
Anderson won the 100 meter dash (13.56), 200 meter dash (27.94) and 400 meter dash (1:02.20) at the Pheasant Conference Meet in Ortonville on Thursday. Anderson is now the school record holder in the 400.
With the end of the school year fast approaching, Ashby juniors and seniors are setting
goals and making plans for the future. For many of them, that means heading off to college. To
help set those goals in motion, several students took to the phones recently for the 33 nd Annual
Ashby Education Foundation Scholarship Phone-a- thon.
Part of the scholarship application process requires students to step outside their comfort
zones and call local residents requesting donations. Several juniors and seniors spent evenings
calling residents and preparing mailings to be distributed in an effort to reach our set goal of
$12,000 for this year’s graduating class. There were several households the students were unable
to connect with, so letters were sent. Please watch your mailbox for the AEF letter along with a
self-addressed envelope for you to use if you wish to make a donation. Donations by check can
be made payable to AEF. You also have the opportunity to make your donation using your credit
card by clicking on the AEF logo at the lower left corner of the Ashby School website home
page for the credit card submission form.
The Ashby Education Foundation and students sincerely appreciate all who contribute
and support our young people in their future educational plans. Please be assured that your
donation will be a worthwhile investment in our students, our school, and our community.
To celebrate I love to read month....staff & students dressed up as characters from their favorite books!
