Silent Auction - Wendell G Mohling Foundation
Once again, Wendell G Mohling Foundation will be hosting its annual fundraiser Silent Auction at the meeting in Hays, KS. We will be open from 7:15am Saturday to 1:00pm. All proceeds benefit the Mohling Foundation. We award one K-12 Kansas science teacher, $700 to use to attend an NSTA conference of their choice in the year they win. Since 2006, we have been issuing these scholarships to a KATS member.
The award is named in honor of Wendell G Mohling, a Kansas high school Biology and Student Naturalist teacher, who was also president of KATS, NSTA, 1983 Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Math, 1985 NASA Teacher in Space from Kansas and Space Ambassador, plus numerous other awards. But he never forgot his Kansas roots or his love of teaching Science. He valued the experiences he gained attending national science teacher conferences.
So, when you come to KATS KAMP in April, if you have something you would like to contribute to the auction, please let me know and bring it along with you. We will gladly accept your donation.
As usual, we encourage you to "bid high and bid often". You must be present to pay for and pick up the items you win. We accept cash, checks and credit cards. We do pass along the 4% transaction fee, which the foundation is charged. The generosity of KATS members is appreciated and passed along to all our recipients. Thank you.
