After recently hearing of the need for funds from an Orrick, Mo., resident, FCS Financial announced its intent to donate $5,000 to Orrick High School to assist with the construction of a new wing to house the ag building and science lab. David Janish, FCS Financial CEO, and Stephanie Tyler, loan officer in Higginsville office, presented the check to Orrick High School FFA Officers and school officials November 24 at the high school.

“As a community with strong farming roots, we appreciate the donation from FCS Financial,” says Aerin O’Dell, Orrick High School Superintendent. “The students in our ag program will benefit greatly from the improvements that will be made when we rebuild the Agriculture building.”

On May 10, an EF3 tornado tore through Orrick, Mo., a town of about 800 in Ray County. The high school suffered extensive damage losing an entire section including the ag shop. This school year, ag classes are being taught outside and in the basement. According to Superintendent O’Dell, the school did not qualify for assistance from either the Federal or State Emergency Management Agencies and repairs exceed the district’s insurance coverage.

“Helping to rebuild Orrick High School’s ag program is important to us because FCS Financial is committed to the success of Missouri’s rural youth and the communities we serve,” says David Janish. “We believe strong agricultural youth programs produce strong leaders.”
