November 16, 2020 – Maxwell, NE –  Maxwell public schools recently received $2,500 from the Bayer Fund on behalf of local farming family Island Farms owned by Dale & Cheryln Wahlgren and Jeff & Robyn Huffman. Island Farms applied for America’s Farmers Grant by Bayer Fund and chose to direct the grant to Maxwell public schools. The school intends to use the funds for the fine arts programs, which will include music mouthpiece kits and the art department has purchased drawing tablets to assist the students when working with photoshop.
