A graduate of Trenton High School and North Central Missouri College, Miss Fox is now seeking a secondary degree in Agriculture Education from NCMC with plans to transfer to Northwest Missouri State University.

Foundation Board Vice-President Chad Boyd announced that the 10th Annual Foundation Charity Golf Tournament raised over $18,000 for the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign. 26 teams from across the region participated in the three-person scramble event held on June 13th at Riverside Country Club. He thanked the sponsors, players and volunteers in making the tournament a success.

Foundation Board Member Cara McClellan reported that plans continue to develop for the third annual Wright Run 5k/10k on Saturday, October 4th. She informed the board that a $25 donation is required per participant, with an extra $10 charge if persons want a long-sleeved event shirt. Mrs. McClellan also shared the race and its activities have been moved to the new facility on Iowa Boulevard, with the route utilizing the lake neighborhood and finishing with participants running or walking the last half-mile of the race on the walking trail when complete. All proceeds from the walk/run will support the “Equipped for the Future” campaign.

WMH Foundation Development Officer Matt Osterthun reported the walking trail construction is going well thanks to favorable weather conditions. He informed the board that once the trail is complete, lighting will be installed, landscaping will be implemented and the three sitting areas will be constructed to complete phase two of the project.

Osterthun also reported on the “Equipped for the Future” Campaign, stating over $92,000 has been committed to the $300,000 project. The campaign is to raise funds for a new OB Centralized Monitoring System and 3D Ultrasound Machine for Wright Memorial Hospital.

The Wright Memorial Hospital Foundation Board will meet again on September 2, 2014.
