Three Lakes School District Administrator Teri Maney has joined the Feed Our Rural Kids (FORK) Board of Directors.

“This is an exciting move forward as Teri brings a lifetime of experience in the care and nurturing of children within our communities,” said FORK President Perry Pokrandt.

In addition to her current role as district administrator, Maney brings a broader local connection as she was born in Sugar Camp and graduated from Three Lakes High School.

Professionally, she had spent more than 20 years within the Rhinelander School District as the director of instruction, as principal at Crescent Elementary School, associate principal at James Williams Middle School, and many years as a classroom teacher within the district.

“I’ve seen firsthand the challenges facing food insecure children across the North Woods,” explained Maney. “As a member of the FORK board, I’ll have a broader opportunity to leverage my experience to help all our local kids to be as successful as possible.”

Feed Our Rural Kids is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide nutritional support to children from food insecure homes within the Northland Pines, Three Lakes, and Phelps school districts.

Maney joins board of director members Scott Foster, Jean Arndt, Rick Miech, Dan Beihoff, Kathy Schmitz, Kate Ferrel, and Pastor Catie Ford. Advisors to the FORK board include Lexi Scafaro and Mindy Wessel.

“It is because of this board that FORK has continued to push forward,” concluded Pokrandt. “Teri Maney is another valuable piece in our ongoing efforts to push back against food insecurity.”
