On hand for the ceremonial check presentation were (from left) Jenell Carowan, Benny Carowan, veterinarian Marty Poffenberger (BCHS president), Tucker Talley (BCHS treasurer) and James Marsh with Monsanto, an agricultural company. The Carowans, through the Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities program, asked for and received funds for the Beaufort County Humane Society. The Monsanto Fund has provided money for other area nonprofit groups in recent years. Asked why she chose BCHS to receive the money, Jenell Carowan said, “I love animals.”
