Hughesville locals

Fun Fact for the week: March Madness is here! At 11 national titles, UCLA holds the record for the most NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championships. University of Kentucky is second, with 7 national titles, followed by Indiana University and the University of North Carolina tied with 5 national titles.

Pet Peeve for the week: Not remembering things like I use to. It must be because things aren’t that important anymore, not because I’m getting older!

Congratulations to Dr. Amy (Shaner) Rogers for being pictured on the cover of the Lycoming College Magazine. Amy is a 1992 graduate of Lycoming and has been employed by the college since 2007. She is department chair of the Education Department and is featured in an article entitled, “Molding Tomorrow’s Educators”.

Congratulations to the Hughesville Boy’s Varsity Basketball team on winning their fist round state playoff game against Dunmore! They go against Devon Prep this Wednesday in Hershey. Way to go Spartans!
