ServSafe Classes Offered by MSU Extension

Montana food establishments that serve food to the public are required to have a certified manager. A manager’s certification must be renewed every 5 years. If you are soon due to renew your certification or you want to make yourself more employable by obtaining a ServSafe Managers certificate, then you will be interested in ServSafe classes offered by MSU Extension. Topics covered in the ServSafe Managers training: The importance of food safety; Good personal hygiene; Time & temperature control; Preventing cross-contamination; Cleaning & sanitizing; Safe food preparation; Receiving & storing food; Methods of thawing, cooking, cooling & reheating food. These topics are covered in the 8-hour class offered by Montana State University Extension. Participants in ServSafe classes take a 90-question exam & must pass with a 75% in order to receive their national ServSafe certificate. Research has shown that those food establishments who have a certified food safety manager have fewer food borne illness outbreaks. Please contact the Valley County Extension Office, 406-228-6241, to reserve your place in this ServSafe Food Safety class by Feb. 1st, so books & tests can be ordered.

HI-Line Sportsmen Memorial Scholarships

High school seniors across Valley County are encouraged to check with their guidance counselors for information & applications for the annual Hi-Line Sportsmen Memorial Scholarships. Multiple sizeable scholarships will be awarded at the conservation group’s annual banquet, scheduled for Sat. Feb. 19th at Glasgow’s St. Raphael’s Catholic Church parish center gymnasium. The scholarships honor the memory of Barb Marsh & Mark Jackson, both longtime supporters of the community & local youth. To memorialize their commitment to the community, Barb’s partner, Joe Younkin, & Mark’s wife, Karen Jackson, sponsored a special gun that was auctioned at last year’s Hi-Line Sportsmen banquet. Proceeds from the commemorative gun are being distributed to eligible high school students this year. All Valley County high school seniors are eligible to apply for the scholarships, which are designed to aid in recipients’ pursuit of a college or trade-school degree. Application materials are available from career counselors at these county high schools: Glasgow, Nashua, Opheim, Hinsdale, Frazer, & Luster Christian. Deadline to receive applications is Mon. Jan. 31st. In keeping with the wildlife-conservation mission of Hi-Line Sportsmen, scholarship applicants must possess a valid Montana Conservation License, & submit a copy of the license with their application. Other considerations are community service & participation in hunting & conservation-oriented activities as well as submission of 2 personal letters of recommendation. Scholarship winners will be announced at the conservation group’s annual fundraising banquet on Feb. 19th, during which another special scholarship gun - a Savage rifle chambered in .22-250 with scope - will be auctioned to provide funds for next year’s scholarships. Over the past 5 years, HLS has awarded a total of $16,000 to 19 Valley County seniors headed for additional education, whether technical & trade schools or 2 or 4 year universities. For details about eligibility & other information about the scholarship, students are encouraged to visit with career counselors at their schools, or applicants can call Jenn Jackson, 406-263-7339 or email jennjenn910@gmail.com.
