Buffalo County Partnership Council

The Buffalo County Partnership Council convened on Monday, September 11, 2017 at

grant opportunities from the Northwest Coalition and the Department of Public Instruction.
The coalition was recognized by the state as a member in good standing of the Alliance for Youth that works to promote alcohol and drug prevention and positive youth development.

in the meeting along with adult members of youth serving agencies and organizations. Members elected new officers for the year: Chairperson, Brilyn Brecka, Alma Schools;
Vice Chairperson, Kayla Kaczorowski, Cochrane-Fountain City Schools; Secretary,
students of Alma Schools and Treasurer, Gretchen Pederson, Cochrane-Fountain City Schools.
