Muncy locals May 16, 2018
This month we applaud many of our students and scholars, and rightfully so.
First of all, I want to share some great news about the SuperStars of the East Lycoming YMCA. From their trip to the Capital last month to show off their drumming skills, other Y’s and parts of the state want to start similar programs. We can thank Diana Logan and the volunteers who help her, plus the donations for starting this delightful program to help those who are differently abled. The music and drumming program that runs here in Muncy is only one of its kind, now to become a trendsetter for others to follow. Each participant is given an opportunity to share and stand out, giving them a positive experience with encouragement from Diana and her team.
Congratulations to Spencer L. Cotner of Muncy for his participation with Penn College’s plastics and polymer students as they went to Orlando for an international award at a technical conference. Spencer is a member of Penn College’s Society of Plastics Engineers.
The Muncy High School Class of 1951 has been purchasing books in the Muncy School Library and the Muncy Public Library in memory of deceased class members. Recently, they purchased books for Connie Heim Metherell and Doris Temple Dunlap. Out of 48 class members to start, 18 are remaining.
Organizations are working together to make computer science a fundamental part of K-12 education across the country. A coalition has been formed with members from Microsoft, Amazon, Computer Science Teachers Association, College Board, Excellence in Education Foundation, to name a few. Some 40 states have made policy changes in the last 5 years. After a year of debate, Pennsylvania’s State Board of Education has approved a resolution to offer computer science education to all public school students in the commonwealth by endorsing Computer Science Teacher Association K-12 Standards.
Keep up the good work all you great students and athletes.
