Mohling Silent Auction Returns

18 Mar 2022 8:06 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


The Wendell G. Mohling Foundation will be hosting its annual Silent Auction at KATS Kamp in Olathe on Saturday, April 23. The auction will be open from 10:00am-1:00pm. All proceeds benefit The Mohling Foundation. The Foundation awards one K-12 Kansas science teacher $1000 to use to attend an NSTA conference of their choice in the year they win. Since 2006, these scholarships have been awarded 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 and NSTA. He received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science and Math in 1983 and the NASA Teacher in Space from Kansas and Space Ambassador in 1985 plus numerous other awards. But he never forgot his Kansas roots or his love of teaching science and valued the experiences he gained attending national science teacher conferences. When you come to KATS KAMP in April, if you have contributions for the auction, please contact Carol Mohing.  As usual, you are encouraged to “bid high and bid often”.  As always, there are a variety of items to bid on, including a 2 night stay in an Alaskan Cabin, wood bowls by Mike Erickson, jewelry from Carol Mohling, original paintings, and Betsy Betros’ “Butterfly Identification Book”.  You must be present to pay for and pick up the item(s) you win between 1:30-2:00pm after the auction closes.  There will also be a direct sales table where you can purchase Kim Poor Space Prints, Mohling Foundation limited edition wine glasses, and jewelry.  Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.

However, a  4% transaction fee for credit card purchases is charged to cover The Foundation’s fee.
