A look at this week’s highlights (and spoilers!) on Wellsboro Home Page


by Home Page Staff - June 11-12, 2016

It’s time once again to take a look at what happened the past week. The Weekly Highlights are a great way to catch up, but don’t forget that you can always watch the full stories from either our front page or the archives section.
Wellsboro Area High School held a commencement ceremony for the class of 2016 on Friday June 3rd. The ceremony began with a welcome by Principal Robert Kreger, and an address to the class by Superintendent, Patrick Hewitt. The commencement address was provided by guest speaker, Dr. Donald Shaw.
After the students received their diplomas, it was finally time for the moment that they had all been waiting for: congratulations to the class of 2016 for all of your hard work and accomplishments! We wish every one of you the best in your future endeavors! Hats off to a wonderful class! Thank you for your support and remember, it’s all right here on Wellsboro Home Page!
The North Penn-Mansfield Tigers advanced to the PIAA state quarterfinals with a 9-2 win over Northwest on Monday, June 6 at Hanover Area High School.
“It was a great game between two good teams,” said Mansfield head coach Matt Perry. “We executed a lot, and we executed well.”
“J.P. has been going out and throwing strikes and gives us a chance to win every game and I can’t ask for more than that,” Perry concluded.
Pancakes were flipped, maple syrup was sold, and planes from all over the region landed at the Wellsboro Johnston Airport for the annual Memorial Day fly-in breakfast on Sunday, May 29, 2016. Thousands of visitors and residents alike drove (or flew!) in to partake in a delicious breakfast held in the brand new hangar, experience thrilling plane rides over the gorgeous views of Tioga County, and even get an inside-look at some of the creative model planes built by the Mountain Modelairs Club.
Sure, it has been said that patience is a virtue, but it seems that impatience has become the cultural norm. We microwave our food, make instant coffee, watch video on demand, expect two day delivery, pay at the pump, and share pictures, videos, and messages in an instant.
We want what we want and we want it now — and in most cases, we get it! This is the age of instant gratification — and it has plenty of benefits! But, like all change, it comes with a cost. And in this case, patience has paid the price. As our desires have been met more rapidly, we’ve become increasingly impatient. And that’s the problem – the reason patience has been called a virtue has everything to do with the devastating effects of impatience.
Connect 4 is a student-run organization that focuses on helping students within the school and promoting a good school climate. Connect 4 offers services such as giving new students personal tours of the school to help them find their way around the high school and adjust to the new setting. The organization also promotes an anti-bullying initiative called STING (S-speak appropriately, T-think positively, I-inspire others, N-notice actions, G-go Hornets!), with a STING week at the high school. STING week provides daily activities relating to each topic of STING. In addition, Connectors act as the eyes and ears of the school in order to offer help to all students.
