CHERIS CATERING MOVES TO NEW LOCATION
Cheri's Catering, run by Cheri Schilling, is currently in the process of moving to a new location, which formerly was Coast to Coast and Greenville Flower Shop. Cheri said that, after catering for 10 years, she has decided to move her catering company into the building because she wanted somewhere that she could do her own thing. She said she has a commercial kitchen in her basement, but is tired of hauling things back and forth and also said that the location is excellent.
Cheri said some of her friends and relatives help her with her company and also said that everything she makes is homemade, from scratch. Nothing is pre-packaged or store bought. She caters weddings, banquets, family reunions, graduation dinners, bar-b-ques, and just about anything.
Cheri is hoping to open her new location in the middle of June and plans to have an open house on a Sunday afternoon where people can enjoy appetizers and some of the other food she has. The address is 215 West College Street here in the Greenville and the phone number is 664-4610. The building is currently owned by Bob and Cathie Wiedenhoeft.
GES SELECTED FOR SPECIAL NASA PROGRAM
Students at Greenville Elementary School will have a rare opportunity to access a wealth of information from NASA thanks to a grant announced recently. The fourth grade teachers at GES submitted a grant application with NASA for the Explorer School program and were one of 26 chosen nationwide. Greenville Elementary teacher Jackie Blumer told WGEL that NASA received 270 applications from which 10 were selected in each region. NASA interviewed those finalists through a teleconference with the winners emerging from that group.
The grant totals $17,500 over three years. Blumer explains how the grant works. The money must be used for technology, math, and science supplies. The first year the school will receive $10,000 which must be used to purchased video conferencing equipment which allow the classrooms to interact with NASA staff. The school now has access to NASA resources including their specialists who can visit Greenville Elementary for one-on-one learning.
She offered a couple of examples on how the Explorer School program might be utilized. For instance, a second grade teacher could have a NASA astronaut read a story to the class or another class might be taught a lesson on rocketry by a NASA scientist.
NASA originated the program has an outreach effort to encourage young people to pursue science and engineering as careers.
