GMG Welcomes Mattison Vaske to GMG by Austin Ridout One of GMG’s many new students is Mattie Vaskie. She recently moved to our small town of Garwin, IA over the summer. She came from Sun Prairie, Wisconsin. She lives with her mom Stephanie and her step dad Matt. Mattie says that GMG is a good school. She thinks the kids here are nice. Compared from her last school, she thinks GMG is about just as hard as her old school. We hope Mattie enjoys GMG, and we want to welcome her to our school.
