Five young women were crowned as county dairy royalty for the upcoming year to represent area dairy farmers and the dairy industry. Madison Bartholome of Goodhue is a current veterinary technician student at Rochester Community and Technical College.
Bidding now open!
Red Wing High School Social Studies teacher Scott Bender is retiring this spring after 30 years of teaching! In those years, he
's accumulated a multitude of colorful and festive ties. More than 70!
Every school day for the rest of the year, Mr. Bender will post a picture of the tie to be auctioned. The person with the highest bid at the end of the day will WIN the tie!
ALL proceeds from this auction will be split equally between two new scholarships at RWHS in memory of Sammi Kriese who was killed in an auto accident the week after she graduated last year and Jana Langhans who died the day before school started this year.
