To the Editor:
On behalf of the Richmond R-XVI athletic department, I would like to thank all the people involved with their food donations and time managing the hospitality room during district wrestling and district boys and girls basketball tournaments.
The school received many compliments on the food and the friendly atmosphere. Because this is not an allowable expense with the Missouri State High School Activities Association, the district is thankful to have such a wonderful group of parents. Without your dedication to Richmond athletics, these tournaments wouldn’t have been as successful.
I would also like to commend our coaches for all they do to see that our programs move in a positive direction. Mostly, I appreciate the student athletes for their educational commitment, motivation and sportsmanship displayed.
The Richmond R-XVI School District is something to be proud of and feel very grateful for, especially when the community showcases what we are so fortunate to have.
