Thanks to Bob Nichols for producing the 2nd Annual "Dancing with the Stars Branson" to raise money for Branson High School's Project Graduation.

Unfortunately, many of our graduating seniors did not receive much of the money, or any of the prizes because the woman that co-oped the Project Grad event, Lori Ashlock - Ruda, rigged the prize drawing so her daugher, and the entire table of her daughters friends won most of the prizes. In addition, the cash for attending Project Grad, was unequally distributed between the students. Some receiving as little as $40, while other students received upwards of $150.

I, as a parents and helper in the fundraising, am OUTRAGED that this Lori Ashlock - Ruda woman was allowed to take over the Project Grad prize reception and still have not answered for it. Any comments Branson Public Schools?

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping to raise money for our Branson seniors, only to have one woman co-opt the entire event and turn it into a prize party for her daughter & her daughters friends

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not allow Lori Ashlock-Ruda anywhere near money, prizes, or the ability to threaten or intimidate any other parents
