Kirksville Resident Announced as Recipient on $10,000 Grant

A Kirksville woman is the grand prize winner of the Ameren Missouri Powers Change grant program. Jackie Eaton will receive a $10,000 grant for her local charity, the Adair County Humane Society. In August, Eaton was selected as one of ten finalists from across the state, and garnered the most votes on Facebook to win the grand prize. Because of the votes and support from the Kirksville community, Eaton now has the funds to install air conditioners and make other improvements to the local humane society of which she has been director for over 30 years.
