    Kaitlynne Gets a Surprise!


    Kaitlynne Conger is a 4th Grade student at Hayes. Her 2nd quarter writing assignment was “When I Grow Up”, and she chose to write about her Grandma who works at Farm and Fleet. Her paragraph was forwarded to the CEO of Farm and Fleet, who then sent a letter to Kaitlynne thanking her for the kind words about her Grandma and the Farm and Fleet store she works in. Kaitlynne was presented with a hat, t-shirt, and the letter from Jane Blain Gilbertson, CEO and President of Blain’s Farm and Fleet. Way to go Kaitlynne!
