North Judson-San Pierre is the latest school to form a partnership with the Cheryl Lyn Welter Family Charitable Foundation. Harold Welter provided the NJSP School Board with an informative presentation when they met Tuesday night.
Welter explained to board members that the foundation was established in memory of his daughter Cheryl who passed away in an automobile accident her senior year.
