The 2005 Credit for Kids campaign raised over $238,000, far exceeding our goal of $225,000 and last year's total of $205,000. All of us at Payson Unified School District thank our donors for believing in and supporting the programs, activities and enrichments this money provides. Most of these extracurricular activities simply would not exist without Credit for Kids funding.
We are indebted to Ray and Julie Pugel at Coldwell Banker Bishop Realty, Mark and Diane Monty at Pioneer Title and Pat Willis at The Stockmen's Bank for sponsoring the saturation mailing. Their generous sponsorship allows us to deliver the good news about Credit for Kids to every PUSD resident's mailbox.
The Payson Roundup and Publisher Richard Haddad ran columns and columns of print in both free advertising and editorial copy to keep Credit for Kids before the public. Our partnership with the Payson Roundup has a long, cordial history. We are grateful for all the stories, ads, editorials and letters to the editor that tell our story.
There are many individuals, businesses and organizations that make for a successful Credit for Kids campaign, but it is mostly the donors, citizens of Rim Country and beyond, who gave us such an outstanding 2005 campaign. Thank you again for your donations, large and small, that sustain quality extracurricular activities for many, many students.
Sue N. Myers, Payson Unified School District No. 10 Superintendent
