Bement Schools Superintendent Calling on Community to Help Those in Need

A Piatt County school leader has a unique call to help out kids in their school district.


First-Year Bement Schools Superintendent Mary Vogt explains the last couple of years, meals at schools have been free thanks to money from COVID. For the 2022-23 school year, those dollars have gone away and families have to pay for those meals again. 



Oftentimes, adults will pay it forward by buying coffee in the drive-through for the person behind them. Vogt believes most people are in that drive-thru line because they can afford that coffee or whatever. She encourages instead, to stop into the office of your local school and purchase lunches for a student in need.



bement.k12.il.us is the school's website where you can learn about all the happenings in Bement Schools and find more information about the school lunch program.
