HORNET HAPPENINGS – NEW FOR 2016
Welcome to the first edition of Hornet Happenings for 2016 with Wellsboro High School principal, Rob Kreger. Today’s Hornet Happenings features Jessica Smith, Maddy Sweet, and special guest, Daisy! There’s always something happening at Wellsboro High School. National FFA week was the week of February 22nd through the 26th.

YMCA GRAND RE-OPENING
Historically, the Tioga County YMCA in Mansfield has consistently provided a variety of fun family activities to the surrounding communities. Now more than ever, the YMCA is able to fulfill their mission as the result of the extensive renovation of their facility. The YMCA held their grand re-opening in celebration of the completed of the project on Wednesday, February 24.

David Fagerstrom, Missioni Advancement (CEO) of the River Valley Regional YMCA attended the event. He was especially encouraged to see so many members of the community come together to help with the renovation. He spoke about the three prong approach of the Y—encouraging youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD: FRUITY FUN!
Fruit contains vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals! It tastes good, but also is FUN to eat. Check out how much is recommended at choosemyplate.gov and what counts as a serving of fruit. And yes, juice counts but it must be 100%. The American Academy of Pediatrics has specific recommended limits.

STUDENTS’ PERSPECTIVE ON DRUG PROBLEMS
Drug busts in our community over the past six months have proven that Tioga County has a dangerous drug problem. From the confiscation of tens of thousands of dollars worth of illegal narcotics, to the arrests of over 30 dealers, officials in our town have concluded we have an ongoing issue.

Today on Wellsboro Homepage, we get responses and perspectives from four Wellsboro High School students. Is the drug problem prevalent in our schools? What do students think should be done? Watch today’s video feature for this generation’s thoughts on the state of our community.
