Can you sense the excitement? April Wuelfing’s six-year-old daughter Pattyn snapped this photo right after her mother learned she was Montana’s newest James Madison Fellow. That title comes with some perks, including a $24,000 scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in history. PHOTO BY PATTYN WUELFING

The rest is history

When an unexpected Fedex package arrived on Sheridan history teacher April Wuelfing’s doorstep recently, she didn’t think much of it. With three kids and all the online shopping being done lately, she figured it was something for the kids or her husband.

Back on track

Sheridan track and fielders bounced back after a missed year of competition at the Frenchtown track and field meet on April 9. Unlike many early meets, where snow and wind greet competitors, the day of competition was held on a beautiful Montana spring day. It was a warm welcome for the athletes who had an unexpected year off last season.

Have an opinion on how to best manage the future and growth of Sheridan? Now is the time to speak up. The town recently issued an updated draft to its growth policy and is asking the community for its thoughts.

Madison County cleaned up

A person can get stuck in the mentality that if you grow up in a small area, you won’t have the same opportunities as others living in cities or metropolitan places. It can feel like the success of whatever it is you are trying to succeed in is based on location, not ability or passion.
