The Governor stated that “education is the great equalizer” and praised the efforts of the school students and the community who supported the Circle C market. Scotty and Tammy Millard of Scotty's Ranchland Foods in Valentine were also recognized for their help and guidance in getting the store up and running. Governor Heineman made a purchase at the store to lead off the grand opening. He purchased Oreo cookies.
