"The turnout has been amazing," said Greenville Board of Education President, Sue Bowman. "We’re so appreciative of Matt and the Light Foundation for not just supporting our campaign but for being a key part of it. Matt grew up here and never forgot where he came from; it’s very obvious he loves this community and people - the fact that he’s taken on such a public leadership role. His leading by example is part of what makes this such a great community!"

Montessori Jr. High
"Thank you for letting us use your facilities at Chenoweth Trails. I've been there before but never used it and wondered how it would work for our school. Well... it was amazing!! It was everything I thought it would be and more. It is so much better than the camp we used to go to... One of my favorite things was the astro turf field - it worked great for all of our activities" - Will Coomer (Montessori Junior High)
Canine Capers 4H Club
"The club really enjoyed their time at Chenoweth. We felt blessed to know it was right in Darke County! It was a nice getaway that was close to home. Our purpose for going there was to promote and build stronger relationships between 4H members, families and Advisors. Everything was perfect – there was more there than we expected and a nice place to have fun and connect!"
