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.
