Zorn family makes memorial donation to EL-G FFA

Submitted photo, , , Submitted photo, , , Patrick R. Zorn and Abby Zorn Risse presented a $14,000 donation in memory of Linda Zorn to the Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah FFA Alumni and Education Foundation. Sharing the ceremonial check presentation were (left to right) Larry Eberle (FFA alumni), Tammy Flora (EL-G Education Foundation), Pat Zorn, Ann Buechel-Haack (district superintendent), Abby Zorn Risse, Ryan Risse, Jerry Smith (former district superintendent), Ron Zimmermann (FFA alumni) and John Porior (former FFA teacher and high school principal).

Over the past years, the EL-G FFA Alumni have been building a fund within the Education Foundation which would be earmarked for agri-science programs, curricular integrated studies, leadership activities, and other innovative educational programming. With the Zorn family donation, the FFA Alumni will reach their targeted goal of $50,000.

This donation was made in honor of the positive influence Linda and her husband Pat felt the areas of agri-science, FFA, and leadership studies made on the development of their daughter, Abby. They were also very impressed and appreciative for the opportunities these activities provided. Much of the credit for the programs they attribute to the direction given to the programs by former staff/administration, Porior and Smith.

The goal of the FFA Alumni is to use only the interest from the $50,000 for projects, so in the truest sense, this is a memorial gift that will continue to keep giving long into the future.
