INMAN – With music blaring, an Inman High School student would occasionally take a few seconds to move to the music as they put together a fortified macaroni and cheese meal to help area food banks for the Meals of Hope organization.

Max Harman, an IHS senior, wanted to show students at the school that community service can be an enjoyable experience.

For his senior project, Harman raised $12,500, which he used to purchase the supplies from Meals of Hope. Working with the school’s administration, Harman was able to arrange volunteer help from his fellow students to work shifts to package 50,000 meals. The work was done in the old gymnasium.

More than 275 students, sixth grade and older, worked shifts during regular class periods. Representatives from some of the corporate sponsors, as well as Inman Junior/Senior High School staff members, assisted with the project.

“There are people who have negative thoughts about community service,” Harman said. “We’re playing music and they’re with friends.

“It can be fun and at the same time, they’re doing something good for the community,” he added.

INMAN – Inman Superintendent Scott Friesen said members of the USD 448 Board of Education “tweaked a few things” when they looked at the preliminary plans from Schwab Eaton for updating the district’s outdoor athletic facilities.

Board members discussed athletic facilities during their meeting Monday, March 19, at the district office.

Friesen noted board members wanted to know if there was more space for the parking lot next to the proposed baseball and softball fields that would be built on the district land south of Farmington Road.

While they might be constructed later, board members wanted space available for a children’s T-ball field and an adult softball field.
