Greenville High School Student Wins Young Innovators Competition

Abby Gaffner & Steven Groner, Competition Coordinator for Kaskaskia College

Abby Gaffner, of Greenville, placed first in the Young Innovator Competition sponsored recently by Kaskaskia College. Abby won the high school student category for having actually started and operated a business. “Mom’s Day Out” was Abby’s solution to needing a summer job.

Gaffner put together a meaningful day camp for children ages 2 to 10 using her family farm, daily themes, educational games and crafts.

As a graduating senior, Abby is moving on to the University of Illinois and the study of micro-biology. Her long term goal is to become a family physician.
