On Wednesday, Estherville Mayor Kenny Billings signed a proclamation establishing October as Estherville Lincoln Central Community School Foundation Month.
The ELC Foundation was established May 30, 2001. The foundation seeks to form partnerships among students, educators and community patrons in securing funs for the promotion of education excellence.
An annual banquet is held each year to honor a member of ELC staff or community that exemplifies this partnership of excellence for area students.
