I’m just reaching out to my community partners and Rick and Matt as pastors in the community. You probably know one of our SES students, Jessie Milan, was killed in an accident on Friday afternoon. He had no life insurance. There are several Go Fund me accounts going and his mom is looking for any way to pay for the funeral expenses. I have spoke to Leslie Adams with Adams funeral home and she said anyone can make donations towards his funeral directly to the funeral home (which is what I would advise). She said donations can be dropped off or mailed in to the Adams-Scottsburg location. This student was at LES for his KG and 1st grade year. His brother was at VFES his KG year. His brother is also a 4th grade student at SES. I ask that you please have have continuous prayers for this family.
