Teacher Tricia Merkel Receives Gleason Grant for Responder Rescue

November 17, 2014

Please join us in congratulating Tricia Merkel, Kindergarten Prep Teacher at Monsanto, for her continual volunteer work with Responder Rescue. This agency will receive a Gleason Grant check in the amount of $500 in her honor.

Tricia has been working on developing a weekend that includes a candlelight vigil to honor the more than 200 Fallen Firefighters from the St. Louis area, a fire engine rally that will raise awareness and funds for Responder Rescue, and a firefighters’ ball that will raise funds for Responder Rescue. Her efforts also include Community Outreach and Committee Development.
