Over this last summer, many of the students of Maplewood Academy found jobs to raise money for their tuition funds. Some were very creative in their selection. One such student, Carlie Hanson, spent her summer beekeeping at her family’s bee farm. She worked with her family taking care of their bees, making repairs to keep bears away, and of course harvesting honey.
Several students, including Seth Martin and Thomas Charles, also worked at the OneDay Church located in Dodge Center. They manned an assembly line, stacking boxes of tools and housing parts to be shipped overseas to Africa.
Many others worked at the Maplewood Academy Farm harvesting strawberries on the Maplewood Academy Farm and then selling them at the academy’s roadside stand and at a local farmer’s market.
These students worked hard to raise money so they could have the opportunity to have a Christian Education at Maplewood Academy. We are proud of their hard work and the way they are developing their talents for the Lord.
