  • Central Cass receives $8,000 Bayer Fund grant

    Employees from Bayer; Keith Jackson and John Gulleson recommended Central Cass to receive an $8,000 grant from Bayer Fund. Funds from the grant will be used to purchase an agricultural exploration augmentative interactive sand table for Central Cass’ STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) center that will teach various properties of topography, hydrology, geomorphology, and land management. Mistie Holland, technology integrationist wrote and submitted the grant for Central Cass and plans to purchase a ‘TopoBox Augmented Reality Sandbox’ to add to the school’s Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Center. Holland states, “I saw an Augmented Interactive Sandbox last summer while visiting the Dinosaur Museum in Dickinson, ND while on vacation and knew we needed one for our new STEM center! It will allow students to become inquiry-based learners and meet the needs of our students’ desire to be challenged and empowered through hands-on, project-based learning that will enhance STEM education at Central Cass.” Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. STEM-related careers, specifically agricultural related, are some of the fastest growing and highest paid jobs of the 21st century. “We’re happy to support Central Cass with this Bayer Fund grant!” Stated the leadership at Bayer’s Research Center in Glyndon MN -Keith Jackson and John Gulleson. In 2019, Bayer Fund awarded more than $1.4 million through this program to nonprofit organizations in rural communities to help address essential needs in Food & Nutrition, STEM Education, and Community Development. Nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received more than $7 million through this program over the last five years.

  • Central Cass Middle School gets Backpacks from the Bremer Backpacks Initiative.

    This summer, 25 Middle School students from Casselton will receive brand-new backpacks stuffed with essential school supplies through the Bremer Backpacks initiative. Made possible by Bremer Bank’s expanded partnership with United Way, this first-of-its-kind initiative ensures more than 5,000 children in need across the Upper Midwest will be well-equipped to tackle the upcoming new school year. During the week of June 10, hundreds of Bremer employees volunteered in shifts to assemble the backpacks at the company’s Service Center in Lake Elmo. Stocked with classroom essentials including crayons, markers, colored pencils, notebooks, pocket folders, glue sticks, scissors, pencil pouches, erasers, and pencil sharpeners, completed backpacks were distributed to more than 65 Bremer locations throughout its footprint in Greater Minnesota, western Wisconsin, and North Dakota. Launched in conjunction with Bremer’s 75th year in business, the Bremer Backpack initiative represents the company’s philanthropic mission – originally stemming from founder Otto Bremer – to invest in the communities they serve. This initiative also follows Bremer’s recent rebrand, in which a new logo and website were launched to signal the bank’s focus of meeting its customers where they are and in a way that provides value to them. “For 75 years, Bremer Bank has defined its purpose as helping our communities grow and prosper,” said Jeanne Crain, president, and CEO of Bremer Bank. “We are proud to continue this commitment through the Bremer Backpack initiative and are thrilled to have a such a dedicated partner in the Greater Twin Cities United Way.” “When it comes to educational success, our vision is that all children are ready to thrive academically, personally and socially,” said John Wilgers, president and CEO of Greater Twin Cities United Way. “We are grateful to Bremer Bank for its support and commitment to helping students in the Upper Midwest start the year off ready to learn.”
