Hughesville Locals May 17, 2017

By Staff | May 17, 2017

Nobody ever said May would be a perfect progression of warming temperatures, mild breezes, and gentle rain. We have certainly not had that kind of May this year! Now we are in the upswing of the thermometer, with temperatures 20 to 30 degrees warmer than just a few days ago. It seems that there is quite a modulation of the jet stream that brings wide-ranging extremes of weather. I hope that it will smooth out soon and things will settle into a calm early summer.

The recent wet weather caused a postponement of the East Lycoming Education Foundation’s “Carz and More” festival. I don’t have details about the new date, but will publish that info as soon as it’s available. Other good things have been happening in our local schools. HHS has a new group of inductees into the National Honor Society, and the HHS team of Samantha Thompson, Emilie Detweiler, and Jacob Reynolds were First Place winners in the Penn College Youth Leadership team. Their project, a sensory garden, will be implemented at the Hughesville Area Public Library with the help of an $800 grant from Penn College. Also, the annual HHS May Day celebration took place last week, and the HHS Baseball team is competing in post-season games.

Congratulations to LycoCTC competitors at SkillsUSA Pennsylvania State Competitions. This year 17 students competed in State Competition in seven (three team, four individual) different events. Adam Potts, an HHS student, was part of the gold award winning team who will advance to National competition in June. Another LycoCTC team placed Third in the Quiz Bowl, a team contest covering areas of technical knowledge, academic knowledge, current events, citizenship and more. HHS students on the team were Christina Finamore, Tiffani McElroy, Taylor Mason, and Shayanna Hubbert. Congratulations!
