Pulaski Rugby wins State back-to-back Garden of Heroes On every Memorial Day there
By Emily Smithback Memorial Day is one day out of the year, set aside to honor Americans sacrifices for freedom. One attendee said it best, Memorial Day gives people who havent served an opportunity to honor people because freedom isnt free. However, the reverence Americans show for their honored deceased should be a never-ending display.

VOLUME LXXI, NO. 12

are thousands of ceremonies held in communities around this country to honor fallen heroes in their own special way. The people of Green Bay are no different. One such ceremony takes place on the east side of Green Bay at the beautiful Nicolet Memorial Gardens. The Pulaski High School Choir set the mood of the ceremony singing a beautiful rendition of God Bless America.

The Roos A and B team both won State. The team members are Gavin Henn, Warren Nordgren, Cam Lambert, Brett Smith, Brian Sullivan, Matt Salewski, Josh Sandra, Spencer Corpus, Charlie Koehler, Griffin Cleereman, Ethan Steeno, Nevada Skenandore, Sam Caldwell, Andrew Teresinski, Zach Webster, Taylor Hamlin, Ryan Neerdaels, Jacob Vanderloop, Tyler Hirn, Sharon Pendleton, Tyler Bartz, Ben Oliver, Andrew Baumann, Christian Krueter, Devin Hynes, Jordan Butcher, Matt Vesco, Taylor Jantz, Race Noeldner, Ben Thiem, Joe Hames, Shane Butcher, Elliot Thiem, Alex Hicks, Derrick Dombrowski, and Tanner Ruechel.

By Griffin Cleereman and Parker Christiansen For the second year in a row, the Pulaski Roos have won first place in the Wisconsin State Rugby Tournament. This year, the event was held in Fond du Lac, May 22. Being part of the team and the championship was well worth it, said Pulaski senior Sam Caldwell, lets just say back-toback. The Roos went into the tournament with a record of 13-1, taking third place in the Midwest National Rugby Tournament and being undefeated in the conference. All season, we knew that we would be in tough games, so we practiced really hard and had the mindset that we were going to dominate every team. Nothing we did could have been done if we didnt have the coaching we had from Fran, J.J., Travis, and a few old boys, said team captain, Charles Koehler. The Roos first game on Saturday was played against Nicolet, a team theyve played in the cham-

pionship for the last two years and defeated for the title last year. We played a very good team; they were strong in all of their positions. I enjoyed the time I spent playing for the Roos and playing for our coaches, said senior Jordan Butcher. The Roos ended up winning 29-10, guaranteeing a spot in the championship game against Muskego, a team no one on the Roos team had played before. The Roos knew the next game they played, which was the last game some would ever play, would be their hardest. I was nervous, but I knew we would win. Our team was too good to lose, said Ben Thiem. The team was determined they would win; no team was more conditioned or prepared for this game. We put so much hard work and dedication into the season that taking anything less than first place would have been a disappointment. We werent the biggest-sized team in the tournament, but we played the most as a team, and we played with a lot

Honoring the fallen


world right now fighting for the freedoms we love. On this years Memorial Day, a tribute was given to soldiers in the Ripley Performing Arts Center at Pulaski High School on May 31. The service started off with the Red Raider Band playing our national anthem. When the band was finished, the days speaker, LeRoy Holl, started things off by recognizing the Pulaski Area Veterans Organizations in attendance that day. Holl then began thanking the men and woman that died in our nations armed forces, men and woman like Major Charles Lorings. Lorings was a pilot in the Korean War who was shot down and gave his life to save other pilots and soldiers and was awarded the Congressional Medal

of heart, said captain Race Noeldner. Pulaski played a hard game and, only being down once in the first half, came away with the win of 25-12. It felt absolutely amazing to go out there and win a second state title. We knew we had the talent and experience to do it, and we just went out there and got the job done, said Nevada Skenandore. Pulaski Roos were State Champions once again, and even better, the Pulaski B team took first in the N.E.W. Tournament. Having never played rugby in my life and to come in and help win the state championship is now my greatest accomplishment. I wouldnt have been able to get there if it wasnt for the hard work that my teammates and coaches put in over the season, said senior Zach Webster. Pulaski Rugby couldnt have asked for a better day with both the A and the B teams taking first in their tournaments. The Roos owe their wins to the hard work they put in at practice and to a dedicated coaching staff. of Honor for the sacrifice he gave. Sadly, the one million men and woman who died in service to this nation in wars and conflicts since 1775 cant be replaced. All thats left is a nation in their debt. We are reminded that they died so we could live and continue to cherish the things they loved: God, country, and family, said Holl. Holl concluded his speech by thanking the men and woman serving in todays armed forces serving in Iraq, Afghanistan, North Africa, and over 130 foreign lands around the world. After his speech, Auxiliary President Sue Winter read the names of 13 men from our local community who were killed in action along with the placing of the wreaths.

while the Pulaski High School Choir sang our National Anthem. Just as in years past at this service, several honorary speakers were present; John Mino and Major Rich Heidel Army (Retired) were given this privilege this year. Mino spoke of the importance of Memorial Day and also shared a few of the conversations he has had with veterans. Heidel addressed the value of our freedom and the high price we as an American people pay for it. The fallen soldiers were honored with a ceremonial lying of wreaths and a silent tribute displaying the changing of the guard. Wreaths were given in honor of POW/MIA soldiers, in honor of Gold Star Families who have lost a family member in combat, and in recognition of veterans from All Wars that Americans have fought in. The Navy Sea Cadets, Dave and Donna Opicka, and Sgt Maj. Ed Prucha and his son 1st Sgt Mark Prucha had the honor of laying the wreaths. The silent changing of the guard consisted of a flawless gun routine performed by Sgt William Knies, Sgt Mark Weier, and SP/4 Ken Jerabek. Silence during this significant routine was mandatory out of respect to fallen soldiers. A rifle salute presented by members of the United States Marine Corps, broke the silence set by the climax of the ceremony. Next, Taps was beautifully performed by a Navy Sea Cadet as the crowd sat and listened respectfully. Leander Danforth took over the stage one more time with the benediction, once again stated in the Oneida Language. Jim Gallagher gave the closing of the ceremony, and Ken Jerabek retired the colors, officially ending the ceremony. Memorial Day to some is another day to vacation, but to most it is a day to honor and respect the work of fellow citizens who are no longer with us. Ken Jerabek said, Remember all the fallen soldiers because thats what Memorial Day is all about.

Front/Garden of Heroes

The ceremony continued on with an introduction speech given by Master of Ceremonies Ken Jerabek. The introduction was followed with the invocation spoken in the Oneida Language by Army veteran Leander Danforth. Fol-

lowing his incantation, Danforth read a prayer to formally start the proceedings. The United States Navy Color Guard, Oneida Nation Color Guard, and the United States Marine Corps Firing Detail marched into position following the invocation to present our nations colors. Then the Navy Sea Cadets raised the American Flag

Community
Positively Pulaski website begins
From now on, citizens of the Pulaski Community School District have a place they can go to find out about all the events and happenings in the Pulaski Community School District. Its a website called Positively Pulaski. Citizens can Google Positively Pulaski or type in the address www.positivelyPulaski.org and they will see a community calendar that lists events and happenings in the Pulaski community. Several months ago, PACE Director Mark Heck, was saddened by the fact that he didnt know about the American Legion Smelt Fry. He said Wouldnt it be great if there was one place that people could go to see all the great events that are happening in our community. The idea was born and with the help of Ken Westphal, the districts website developer, the Positively Pulaski website was created. Groups and organizations from throughout the community who want to publicize their events can submit their events to the website. Events will be sent to the school district and be reviewed by Trudy Wied who will then post the events on the calendar. Citizens from the district are encouraged to view the calendar often to see the many great events and happenings in the community. The Positively Pulaski website links with many other websites from groups, organizations, local churches in our community and municipalities including the new Village of Pulaski website. In essence, the Positively Pulaski website can become a one-stop shop for all of the Pulaski area information. Citizens are encouraged when they are looking for special events in our community to visit www. positivelyPulaski.org

A community is like a ship; everyone ought to be prepared to take the helm. ~Henrik Ibsen

NorthStar reveals findings from the Pulaski area Economic Opportunity Study
By Sara Brown and Alexandria Schmidt On May 24, Dr. David Ward of NorthStar Economics, Inc., presented the findings of the Economic Opportunity Study. After touring, interviewing, and analyzing the district, he and his associate created a roadmap for the Pulaski community. He has created an economic opportunity list in order to stimulate the process. He states that all of the opportunities could not be taken on all at once so he has created a priority list in order to succeed. Village president Keith Chambers said, This is an important step to help move the entire area forward, and we will take advantage of changing and bettering economic conditions. Priority one, which would take place in one to two years, consists of growing the Pulaski area economic development organizational structure and its capacity to work at economic development and to develop business opportunities around the concept of a local food cluster. The cluster would include agricultural producers, food processors, food markets, and retailers. The Pulaski Area Economic Development Corporation has been resurrected. Local businesses and community leaders will serve on the Board of Directors. The Economic Developing Corporation will actively and aggressively work on developing our local economy. They will use the Economic Opportunity study as a roadmap for economic development. Food clusters are a great way to bring in people to the city of Pulaski. It is an opportunity for growth of existing and attraction of new agricultural processors. Local sourcing of food could be used as well. Priority two, which would take place in two to four years, consists of developing middle and high end housing, working on building a regional identity, retaining and growing existing businesses, and developing tourism and destination programs and activities. Pulaski has a high quality of life, small town appeal, high quality schools, and generally favorable housing prices, which will continue to attract residence. Part of the growth should be aimed at high-end residential housing; higher-priced housing will help build the tax base of the community. Although Polka days is a great tourist attraction, more attractions need to be utilized, such as the Mountain Bay Trail and other sporting events. Priority three, which would take place in the intermediate and long term, consists of developing retail, restaurant, hotel businesses, and international businesses. Economic development in the village could be started off by encouraging new businesses such as hotels, banquet facilities, retail stores, restaurants, and entertainment options to locate in Pulaski. It is also important to retain and grow existing businesses while using government programs (incentives) to aid existing businesses and recruitment of new businesses. The entire economic opportunity study can be found at the school districts website, www. connect.pulaski.k12.wi.us, and the new village of Pulaski website, www.thevillageofpulaski.org.

Sunnyside fifth graders tour the historic Chase Stone Barn

Sunnyside fifth graders learn about field stone construction.

Submitted by the Town of Chase On May 27 fifth grade students from Sunnyside Elementary School experienced a piece of Wisconsins rich agricultural history when they toured the 1903 Chase Stone Barn in the Town of Chase, Pulaski. The Stone Barn is on the State and National Reg-

ister of Historic Places and is one of the last surviving all-fieldstone barns in the country. The students began their tour at the site of the old farm house, which was built in 1887. The house burned down around 1940, and all that remained over the years was a pile of rocks and debris in a barely visible hole. The town hired Archaeologist Bob Fay last fall to excavate the hole to identify and document the parameters of the house foundation and look for artifacts. Fay was able to expose the entire house cellar and is now working on finding the remaining stone foundation walls, which were part of the L-shaped house. When the students were asked what they thought the hole was, they had no idea since it doesnt resemble anything like todays modern basement. One student thought it was for swimming in. Needless to say, the students were very fascinated with the archaeology. The children then made their own history by being the first group of students to ever tour the stone barn. They were so excited and full of questions, said Kristin Kolkowski from the Stone Barn Committee. They wanted to know every detail about the barn. Before the students departed, Kolkowski asked them if they thought it was a good idea to preserve such an old barn, and they all agreed it was a really good thing to do. When asked what they all thought about the stone barn, they said, This is cool! This is awesome! It is so rewarding to see how excited the kids were about preserving a piece of Wisconsins history, Kolkowski said. They are the main reason we are doing this.

School Updates
Common School funds sent to District
By Ciara Richardson and Erika Lambert Pulaski Community School district receives $128,948 from Common School Fund payments. Common School Fund payments to public school districts throughout the state totaled $32 million in aid for the purchase of books, media materials, and computer equipment for school libraries. The library aid payments are $25.85 per student for the 1,236,756 children between the ages of 4 and 20 living in each school district. Aid is from Common School Fund proceeds and represents the only state aid specifically designated for the purchase of materials for school libraries. The aid payment from the Common School Fund went to districts on April 26 and must be used by June 30 for items cited in statue. School libraries support student learning, said State Superintendent Tony Evers. Our students need a rich supply of resources in the school library to augment classroom activities. Thee Common School Fund Aid payments are welcome investment in our student education. The Common School Fund is made up of revenues from civil and criminal fees, fines and forfeitures, timber revenue from public trust lands, and revenues from the states Unclaimed Property Program. This principal is used to make loans to local governments and school districts for building, roads, sewer and water facilities, equipment, recreational facilities, economic development, and other public purposes under the State Trust6 Fund Loan Program. Some of the principal also is invested in state and local bonds. Funds not committed to loans or bonds are deposited in the State Investment Fund.

The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows. ~Sydney J. Harris

Wingra Woodwind Quintet visits PHS


By Kevin Ripley Having a professional music group come to Pulaski is an infrequent occasion. However, the Wingra Woodwind Quintet came to Pulaski High School, and not only performed for an audience of music students, but also taught them about how finely-tuned ensembles work. It so happened that the quartet had planned to pass near Pulaski during their travels, so they contacted the director of bands at PHS, Tom Busch, and asked if hed like them to pay a visit. An opportunity such as this could not be turned down. The Wingra Woodwind Quintet is ensemble-in-residence at the University of WisconsinMadison School of Music. Members include Linda Bartley, clarinet; Marc Fink, oboe; Linda Kimball, horn; Dawn Lawler, flute; and Marc Vallon, bassoon. PHS band students greatly enjoyed listening to the Wingra Quintet play and learning about the functions of a professional ensemble. Senior band member Jake Leigh said, I loved listening to the quintet. They played beautifully, and they had a lot of knowledge to share with the band students.

Lisa Cumber, Sue Schuettpelz, Mona Kornaus, Gary Carter, and Pete Liss are drivers who had perfect attendance this year. The Pulaski School District thanks them for their dedication and service.

Bukos Trees and Spading gets on the web


Pulaski High School students help get site up and running
Students at Pulaski High School in the webpage design course worked to provide a local business with a personalized website to make the business more accessible to the community. The class broke up into groups to make their own website for the Bukos Trees and Spading business. It then became a competition between the groups to provide the best website for Bukos business. In order for the groups to make the websites, Ron Bukowiec, the owner, came in and presented information to the class about his business and what he wanted on his site. It was up to the students to take that information and turn it into a well-organized and professional webpage. In addition, the students were responsible for providing original pictures of the Bukos Trees and Spading business. Students earned extra credit for driving on their own time to Bukos business to take select pictures for each page of their websites. Many hours of the class, students spent their time building original and creative webpages in the interest to provide Ron Bukowiec with satisfaction. Eventually, as the groups finished the websites, they presented them to Ron Bukowiec. He was then able to choose which group, in his opinion, made the best professional website for his business. With the help of Harley Griesbach, the course teacher, they were able to piece together an up-and-running website. Even so, one issue that needed to be solved was finding the best local host site to use. MyPC is a local business that was ultimately the choice that Mr. and Mrs. Bukowiec thought was the best option for their website to be easily accessible. Bukos Trees and Spading is now a running website through the efforts of Harley Griesbach and his webpage design class. To check out the website, visit www. bukostrees.com.

Student Engineering achieves Night a success top ACT score


Jordyn Anklam, daughter of Jeffrey and Kelly Anklam and a junior at Pulaski High School, earned a top composite score of 36 on a recent ACT test. Nationally, while the actual number of students earning a composite score of 36 varies from year to year, roughly one-tenth of one percent receive a top score. Among test takers in the high school graduating class of 2009, only 638 of nearly 1.5 million students earned a composite score of 36. The ACT consists of tests in English, mathematics, reading and science. Each test is scored on a scale of 1-36, and a students composite score is the average of the four test scores. Some students also take ACTs optional Writing Test, but the score for that test is reported separately and is not included within the ACT composite score. In a letter recognizing this exceptional achievement, ACT Chairman and CEO Richard L. Ferguson said, While test scores are just one of the many criteria that most colleges consider when making admission decisions, your exceptional ACT composite score should prove helpful as you pursue your education and career goals. ACT test scores are accepted by all major U.S. colleges, and exceptional scores of 36 provide colleges with evidence of student readiness for the academic rigors that lie ahead.

By Steven Schlender The Pulaski Technology Education Department held its first annual Engineering Night on May 19. It was a night used to highlight the Project Lead the Way pre-engineering students and their work over the course of the year. Students from the Intro to Engineering Design, Civil Engineering and Architecture, and Engineering Design and Development were all present with their accomplishments. The main focus of the evening, however, was on the eight senior Engineering Design and Development students and their projects. Over the course of the year, the three groups of students, two groups of three and one group of two, had worked on a project to solve a real world problem. The students used all of their cumulative engineering knowledge to produce prototypes to solve their respective problems. The Clean Cash group of Marlo Vercauteren, Chris Shaw, and Tim Stone created a bill cleaning device utilizing a printer mechanism and ultraviolet lighting. The Hand Free Hydration group of Steven Schlender and Jacob Vanderloop created a completely hands free drinking fountain with the ability to adjust the amount of flow coming out of the nozzle. The

Secure Elevation group of Ethan Archambault, David Nooyen and Ethan Steeno created a working platform attachable to an extension ladder for a safe working environment on top of the ladder. These students were given the opportunity to present their projects before a board of judges from the Pulaski community. The judges assessed the students of their presentation skills, communication skills and overall projects. Overall, the night was a great success, the students were able to wonderfully display all of their hard work from the year, and everyone did very well in their presentations. The department is looking forward to future success with this venue.

The compacted 8/9 team placed third in the nation in the ninth grade general science category at the National Science League Contest. This is a tribute to those students independent learning skills as well as the K-8 curriculum. The top student score was one point away from being tied nationally for first place. Participants were Brett Zahn, Cody Caelwarts, Ryan Dooley, Zach Nelson, Masoudae Rezvani, Advisor Pat Hermans, Chaz Kestly, Hunter Vannieuwenhoven, Josh Frederick, Cory Cotter, Macallum Brabender, and Advisor Benjamin Wolf.

songs: Get Your Lemonade, The Worst Day All Day Long, Recipe for Joy, A Change of Heart, Make Lemonade, Humpty Dumpty, Hey Diddle Diddle, Little Boy Blue, Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe, and Itsy-Bitsy Spider. The children all used hand gestures and dance moves while singing the songs. They also used sign language during A Change of Heart. In between songs, a short skit would take place with mul-

tiple nursery rhyme characters acted out by the children. About half-way through the play, blacklights were turned on in place of regular lighting. The children all wore white gloves and also had other props such as scarves that they would wave in the air. The participants and audience all enjoyed this musical. After the show was finished, all of the audience was invited to enjoy a glass of lemonade in honor of the musical.

checking accounts and went through the process of making mortgage, car, and utility bill payments. They then determined, based on the amount of money left in the accounts, the students had to make the financial decision on whether or not they would purchase cable, internet or other amenities. This simulation gives students a realistic look at the difficulties of setting a budget as an adult, said Ted Sarosiek, a social studies teacher. For some students it was a struggle to complete the simulation while others found it easy. Some students were forced to look for part-time jobs after realizing their type of lifestyle could not be afforded and more money was needed. Some students had other problems such as taxes, hospital bills, and other unexpected costs. After completion of the simulation, students were supposed to have about $50 to $200 dollars left in their checking accounts. I thought this was really fun, and it teaches us how hard it is to manage money in real life situations, said middle school student Caleb Abegglen.

Sunnyside students shine


Sunnyside Elementary School held its Fine Arts Night April 22. The Star Spangled Banner was performed by the fourth and fifth grade choir. The night consisted of an art show and performances in the gym. Around forty young artists took part in the art portion of Fine Arts Night. They created pieces of artwork which were displayed throughout the school. The performance part of the night consisted of about fortyfive children participants singing, dancing, playing instruments, performing skits, and displaying karate skills. Students would have short performances and the choirs would also sing in between them. Many parents, grandparents, siblings, and others gathered together at this huge production. The students all enjoyed taking part in and attending this event. Mary King, principal of Sunnyside Elementary School, commented on the show saying, Fine Arts Night at Sunnyside is a great family evet that gives the children a chance to shine! Families are amazed at the courage and poise that their children show as they perform dance, musical numbers, or gymnastics in front of a huge audience. Many of the students choreograph their own songs, and all of the artwork is finished at home on their own. The younger kids in the audience get very excited thinking about what they might do for their performance at the fine arts night in the future.

Prices can vary significantly depending on the time of year, type of retailer and more. Do a general search online or visit competing retailers to find the best price. In addition, ask the salesperson what types of sales or promotions may be coming up in case it would benefit you more to wait to make the purchase. Figure out how much cash you will need and how much you plan to finance. Its important that you do not drain your entire savings account in order to make the down payment on your purchase. Calculate your monthly payments ahead of time and make sure you have enough in reserve to continue making payments should you have an emergency that requires unplanned spending. Consider hidden costs that come with the purchase. Items like new cars and new homes come with additional costs besides the purchase of the actual item. Make sure you plan for these as well. For instance, homes need to furnished and property taxes need to be paid. With news cars, insurance costs could increase and gas mileage could decrease. The most important thing to remember if youre in the market to make a major purchase in the near future is to use caution. Make sure you do your research and can afford the purchase even if your income stops. If you need help or have questions about your finances talk with your local banker.

Major purchases require detailed planning


Submitted by Karen Welcing Citizens Bank- Pulaski Government programs such as the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit and Cash for Clunkers have presented opportunities for many to take advantage and begin making large purchases. However, with economic uncertainty still on the top of many peoples minds, there are some who are thinking about the large purchases but are hesitant to dive in. If youre thinking about making a large purchase in the near future, considering the following can help make sure the purchase is a wise one. Identify the purchase in advance. Large purchasing decisions should be thought through carefully and should not be a one day decision. Compulsive buying often leads to buyers remorse and can significantly impact a persons budget if you buy before youre ready. If youre thinking about a large purchase, leave the credit cards or checkbook at home when you go looking to help avoid making a hasty decision. Determine when you want to make the purchase. Setting a realistic timeframe for a major purchase is important to ensure

Holder, who gave a speech about The Making of a Class. The seniors of the Pulaski High School choir, directed by Kathleen Bader, sang We are the World. Once their song was done, Andrew Peterson approached the podium and gave a speech called Farther Down. Then the Pulaski High School choir sang My Wish for You. After the song was finished, Kevin Ripley gave a speech called Falling: Literally and Figuratively. After Ripley finished his speech, Alexandria Wenninger came on the stage and gave a speech called Rising to our Potential. After the speech was concluded, Jenny Oxley, Vice-President of The Class of 2010, presented the Class of 2010 A Trip Through the Year slide show. This included the seniors as they are now and as they were as children. Principal Dan Slowey presented the Class of 2010 to the audience. Principal John Matczak along with Emily Alger-Feser, Secretary of the Class of 2010, and Ashley Caelwaerts, Treasurer of the Class of 2010, presented the diplomas to the graduates.

Roloff donates to PHS Trap Club


Robert J. Roloff of Green Bay was killed while driving home on November 2, 2009, when his car was rear-ended by a tanker truck on U.S. Highway 41. The shock, sadness, and grief of this tragedy were amplified by Bobs reputation throughout the Fox Valley and, indeed, the upper Midwest, for being a thoughtful and benevolent business and civic leader. Among his many interests and memberships, he was a longtime sponsor of Ducks Unlimited. His wife Roberta and son Kevin found, after his death, that Bob had several new firearms, still in their original boxes, which he had acquired from various Ducks Unlimited events. Since Bob hunted ducks, upland birds, and deer almost all of his life, he also maintained a large assortment of shot shells, rifle cartridges, and reloading equipment and supplies. When Kevin was a youngster and was learning to hunt with Bob, they also did a lot of clay target shooting and thus frequently used the re-loader. Roberta and Kevin knew that a dear family friend, Todd Schmidt of Pulaski, shared Bobs enjoyment of hunting, shooting, and the outdoors, and they learned that like Bob, Todd had a keen interest

Pulaski High School Class of 2010 graduates


By Graham Severson

The family of Robert J. Roloff donated guns, ammunition, and reloading equipment to deserving young persons of the Pulaski area.

After 12 years of work and achievements, the Pulaski High School Class of 2010 finally graduated. On May 26, the seniors bid farewell to the past and walked with their diplomas in hand toward the future As you walked into the Fred Kestly Field House, where the commencement ceremony was held, the bleachers were packed to their fullest, and the floor seats were filled with awaiting family members and friends.

While the band, directed by D. Thomas Busch, played Pomp and Circumstance, the senior ensemble directed by Kathleen Bader sang The Star-Spangled Banner for the last time together. Steven Schlender, President of the Class of 2010, welcomed the soon-to-be graduates and their family and friends to this special event. Thereafter, Dr. Mel E. Lightner, the superintendent of Pulaski schools, gave remarks about changes. Then Dr. Lightner introduced senior speaker Erin

in making opportunities available for young sportsmen and sportswomen. In Bobs memory and honor, at the request of Roberta and Kevin, Todd enthusiastically facilitated a gift of the guns, ammunition, and reloading equipment to deserving young persons in the Pulaski area. The members of Pulaski High Schools Trap Club are extremely grateful for the donation that will help make their club better. Trap Club member Jake Leigh said, We are so grateful to the family of Mr. Roloff. Their donations are greatly appreciated and will help in continuing the club.
