WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS... The Lincoln County R-III School District appreciates so many people, businesses and organizations that proudly support our students and our schools. During the 2012-13 school year, the R-III District and its 11 schools (at the time) set out to highlight speci?c people, businesses and organizations as “Friends of the District” during sporting events, assemblies and special programs. Each “Friend of the District” was presented a plaque to be proudly displayed at their home, business or o?ce. These community partners are truly “friends” of the Lincoln County R-III District and our students. Thank you again for supporting the education of the more than 6,300 students in the Lincoln County R-III School District. 3 Allen Auction Backroads Pizza Ben Burkemper, Judge Boone Parent Teacher Organization Boy Scouts Bread for Life Food Pantry Dollar General (Hawk Point) Fetter & Sons Collisions & Customs Finley Shoes Hawk Point VFW Hawk Point Lion's Club Brad Lef?er Lincoln County Journal Lincoln County Resource Board -Becky Hoskins Lincoln County R-III Board of Education tion Lions Club of Moscow Mills NECAC - Foster Grandparent Program gram Peoples Bank & Trust Snow Hill Nursery – Bill Benhardt Troy Chamber of Commerce Troy Fire Department Troy Flower Shop Troy Kiwanis In the fall of 2012, past Troy Middle School Principal Dr. Jerry Raines, now serving as high school principal, TMS counselor Michelle Johnson & Lincoln County Sheri?s Deputy Dyer presented Judge Ben Burkemper and Elizabeth Burkemper with the Friend of the District award.
