The check and gifts were presented by Ray Schwartze, Maries County presiding commissioner and MRPC vice chairman, to high school principal Danielle Tuepker. Project Graduation parents Rick Price and Regina Gesellschap, Belle Mayor Stewart Darrah, Belle Marshal Joe Turnbough and MRPC Executive Director Bonnie Prigge were also present for the event.
