A steering committee for the Skelton Brothers Reward Fund is now place, with oversight by Morenci mayor Keith Pennington.
Kathy Herrera, Jan Mohr and Cyndee Sanders were chosen to join the committee, with Mohr serving as chair.
The purpose of the group is to coordinate the creativity and resources of the Morenci area in a fund-raising campaign, to sustain awareness of the missing boys, and to reward people who come forward with crucial information that results in the boys’ return.
The committee will coordinate volunteers, evaluate ideas and plan publicity. Members will also develop a plan to disburse money if any remains unused and the account needs to be closed.
The actual awarding of funds would be handled by a committee of law enforcement personnel.
In addition to an initial anonymous donation of $10,000, Pennington reported that George and Diana Vereecke have offered to match all new contributions up to a total of $3,000.
