      Jeff Pederson was greeted with homemade "We'll Miss You!" cards from Sandi Snyder's second-grade class last Thursday during Pederson's last visit with students.

      Pederson, store manager at Sentry, is the class's Business and Education Partnership sponsor. He visited Sacred Hearts School classroom at least once a month to read books, talk with students and hand out his special Sentry bakery cookies.

      Pederson has been involved in the Business and Education Partnership, a group of educators and business members who help support the School District, for four years. Every third Thursday he reads or helps students with a special activity. Because of all the interaction. Pederson said he's become very attached to the class.

      "I have lived in this community since 1970. I know these kids, I know their parents and I know their grandparents."

      But now he's leaving to move to Minnesota, Pederson told students, a change he's been looking forward to for two years. Jeff's moving to Minnesota with out a new job, he already has several interviews in various professions scheduled for February.

      Pederson said after the vacation in Dallas he also has pleasure trips planned to both New York and Miami. despite the adventure, however, Pederson said his students can certainly expect him to miss their smiles and the small town he's leaving behind.

      "I will definitely miss this," Pederson said of Sun Prairie. "I've definitely made many, many friends, and those will be the hardest to leave."
