Nine-year-old Karmyn Scott is the daughter of Tony and Jessica Scott of Huntingdon. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor in November 2021 and had surgery and weeks of radiation treatment to be followed by chemotherapy. As sometimes happens after tumor removal, Karmyn developed a syndrome that impacts speech and motor skills and requires occupational and physical therapy. She has seven siblings, five of whom were adopted by the Scotts, including a special needs child. They are a generous and loving family facing a lot of medical expenses.
Sylus Fellman is eight years old and lives in Petersburg with his mother, Heather. He has juvenile metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD), a rare hereditary disorder that destroys the myelin sheath around nerves, particularly in the brain and spinal cord. Sylus has undergone chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant and has a difficult road ahead. Treatments have impacted Sylus’s speech, which has been especially challenging for a boy family members say is a chatter box who likes to tell corny jokes.
Curt White joined Valley Rural Electric’s employee team in 1990, starting on a tree-trimming crew and working his way to journeyman lineman and crew leader. In the spring of 2020, he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Though he fought his way to remission, the aggressive blood cancer returned at the start of this year, leading to several more months of chemotherapy. Curt and his wife, Lois, live near Mount Union and have six children. Curt enjoys spending time with family and is active in his church. Prior to his illness, he participated in a prison ministry which traveled to several states.

Concern for Community
Valley Rural Electric Cooperative's employee health and wellness committee organized its first benefit golf tournament in 2012. Since that time, the golf outing has evolved into an all-hands-on-deck event that raises thousands of dollars annually for beneficiaries. Valley's corporate office and three district offices close on golf tournament day, often a Thursday in June. All employees lend a hand on the course for the culmination of an employee-driven fundraising effort for local families.
However, we could not do this without our sponsors, donors, and golfers. The generous support of a wide range of area businesses and individuals helps our beneficiaries better meet the financial challenges that all too often result from serious illnesses or accidents. Together, we have raised about $240,000 since that first tournament.
