RAPS Receives Grant from RCCF

The Roscommon County Community Foundation is pleased to announce that Roscommon Area Public Schools (RAPS) has been awarded a $1,000.00 grant. Funding for the project was provided by the Gerrish-Higgins Education Fund.

Funding supported a Suicide Prevention and Positive Motivation presentation by Brian Pruitt. According to Mitch Koehn, “With the increase of mental health issues in our population, this is a much needed program.” RAPS students and everyone in attendance benefited from his message. According Roscommon High School students, “It was by far the best assembly they had ever had been to. Brian Pruitt was very entertaining and it wasn’t awkward like you would think a Suicide Prevention assembly would be.”
