Ripple Effect Scholarship Started by Maquoketa Valley Third Grader
Maquoketa Valley third grader, Kaitlyn Nolan, will award the Ripple Effect Scholarship on Sunday, May 10. Kaitlyn recently found $2 on her school playground. Instead of keeping the money for herself, she decided to donate the $2 to Maquoketa Valley Dollars Scholars. Upon receiving her donation, board members and others have been inspired by her act of kindness and made contributions of their own that have allowed this scholarship to reach $528. Thank you Kaitlyn, for starting this Ripple Effect! You can read the full story in the Dyersville Commercial and Monticello Express.
