Clay Counts Coalition January Meeting Summary

By Quinn O’Hara

On Wednesday, January 10th, the Clay Counts Coalition met for their January meeting.

Topics discussed included, among other things, Matt Weller’s new joint Clay Counts Coalition-USD379 public engagement position, planning for the next Courageous Conversations Night, and grant updates.

The meeting began with a summary of Weller’s new duties within his position. He says the grant writing portion of his new duties have a steep learning curve, but he is excited for the new responsibilities.

Lori Martin of the CCCHS YLinK says the KDADS Youth Mental Health Grant for YLinK has provided an additional $3,000 in funding for Clay County YLinK chapters, thanks to a new middle school YLinK chapter in Wakefield. The grant has now provided Clay County YLinK chapters with a total of $12,000 in funding.
