Support a Centura Senior, Buy a Sign!

The Centura Seniors have, no doubt, missed a big part of the celebration of being a Senior. No Senior skip day, instead no days. No awards night, prom, athletic events. They are even missing out on the traditional graduation and the community is going to miss out on celebrating with them.

To show support for our Centura Seniors, double sided yard signs have been created to display in your yards, on main street, in your business windows. Signs are $10 each. Contact Kate Bohling via email to purchase a sign.

Let our Centura Class of 2020 know that even though we can’t be together we are here, proud of their accomplishments, and wish them the best in their next adventures. Let’s show our Centura pride and cover the town with Centura Class of 2020 yard signs!!!!

Calling All Farmers

Last year Centura received at $25,000 America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Grant. This is primarily due to the overwhelming success of farmer nominations within the Centura School District! Centura is eligible to apply for this Grant again. If you nominated Centura last year please do it again! Please share with your friends, family, and neighbors and ask them to nominate Centura. It’s very easy to do. The greater the nominations the greater the chance of success. The grants this year are for $15,000! The deadline for nominations is April 1st! Thank you to Bayer Funds for this amazing opportunity.
