Newberry dairy farmers Scott Mayer and Kevin Satterwhite attended the August meeting of the Newberry Board of Education to present a Fuel Up to Play 60 (FUTP 60) grant to school officials at Prosperity-Rikard Elementary in Newberry County. The grant money will be used to improve the school wellness environment, including increasing access to dairy. "We are very grateful to our dairy farmers and Fuel Up to Play 60 for the grant. Our kids deserve the very best, and with your help we are getting there," states Newberry County Child Nutrition Director Carolyn Barnes. There are six other schools in South Carolina that have received FUTP 60 funding for the current school year.
