Tom Mertz and TradeNet employees praised for supporting local schools
The Gardner-Edgerton, Kan., school district recognized TradeNet Publishing as “Business of the Quarter” at recent meeting of its board of education. Several times during the school year the district recognizes an area business that has provided support and service to students and staff of the school district.
Interim Superintendent Pam Stranathan made special mention of Tom Mertz, TradeNet President & CEO, for his ongoing support of the operations of the school district. Tom also served on the Gardner-Edgerton Board of Education from 1999 to 2003.
Among the “few contributions” made by TradeNet as mentioned by Supt. Stranathan:
Printed GEHS graduation and music programs.
Donated huge rolls of paper for GEHS art classes.
Provided posters and magnets to support various academic and activity initiatives throughout the district.
Provided “Ridge Rumble” programs at Wheatridge Middle School.
Helped support the GEHS Sports literature class with a grant enabling the purchase of books.
Printed our Blazers Against Distracted Driving posters and key tags.
Publishes copies of the District Writing Club book each year for grades K-8.
“We would like to thank Mr. Mertz, along with TradeNet employees, for their continued support to our school district,” said Supt. Stranathan. “It is community-based businesses like TradeNet who go above and beyond for the benefit of our students.”
