Robert Webster presented the local History Award from the East Lycoming Historical Society to Hughesville High School senior Jordana Wagner.

HUGHESVILLE – The third annual Robert Webster Local History Award was announced by Carol Mordan and presented by Mr. Webster to Jordana Wagner.

Jordana is the daughter of Anita and Jesse Wagner of Moreland Township.

Mordan said that “Essays received from the students were exceptional this year, but Jordana’s was phenomenal, and I don’t use that word too often,” she said.

The essay featured Miss Janet Kohler, the eldest member of the East Lycoming Historical Society which facilitates funds donated to the scholarship.

The award winner plans tentatively to attend Shippensburg University and include art in her studies. She created a drawing of Mr. Webster which will be hung in the local history classroom. Current teacher, Mr. Machmer was in attendance when the award was announced during the society’s June meeting at Moreland Community Church.
