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


by Home Page Staff - August 27-28, 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.
The Wellsboro Hornets Sports Booster Club and the Wellsboro Athletic Department held their inaugural Hall of Fame induction ceremony at Swarm the Hive on Sunday, August 21.
Making up the Hall of Fame Class of 2016 are athletes Phil Hickey and Tom Mann, coaches Anne McNaight and Keith Tombs, and the 1997-98 Girls Cross Country State Championship team.

Wellsboro Home Page would like to congratulate all of the members of the Hall of Fame Class of 2016, and would like to wish all athletic teams the best of luck during the 2016-17 season. Nominations for the Hall of Fame Class of 2017 are now open, running from now until January 1, 2017.
The 2016 NTL golf season starts today, and the young Wellsboro Hornet team is ready to hit the links.

Head Coach: Steve Macensky (2nd year, 17-27)
2015 Season Record: 17-27 (17-25 NTL)
Key Returners: Kyle Reese, Ben Barnett, Brandyn Tuttle
Player to Watch: Brandyn Tuttle

The Hornets are still young in 2016, with no seniors and only three juniors on the roster, but could shake things up in the league. The team lost Ryan Reese, who led the team last season, to graduation, but return three of their top six scorers from last season. Tuttle, a sophomore captain, had the second best average on the team and Barnett, another sophomore captain, had the third best average.
Have you ever sat on a masterpiece? The Wellsboro Art Club is auctioning off over 40 chairs that have been beautifully and uniquely redone by local artists! We had the opportunity to speak with the President of the Art Club and two of the artists.

Expecting to receive only 20 at the most, there are now 40 finished chairs that have been submitted! These chairs will be auctioned off at the Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center at 7:00 pm, August 26th, in order to raise money for the “Jane Wetherbee Art Scholarship.” Jane is a living member of the Wellsboro Art Club. Anyone can come at 6:00 pm to preview the chairs! It is a live auction so bidders must be present. The evening’s auctioneer will be local resident and photographer Bob Blair.
Today on Hornet Happenings Principal Mr. Kreger, Janessa Davis and Jessica Smith are welcoming back all returning students and new students. As the new school year is quickly approaching, this episode of Hornet Happenings features a virtual tour of the high school for students in order to ease the transition for those new to high school and to refresh the memory of those returning.

Mr. Kreger would like to remind all upperclassmen to pick up their school-issued laptops at any time before the start of the school year. Freshmen students may pick up their laptops beginning at 3 p.m. on August 30th.

Freshmen and new students are encouraged to come tour the high school and meet the teachers and staff during Freshmen and New Student Orientation on August 30th from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Faculty members and students should take note that there will be new parking changes. The Nicholas Street parking lot will now be for the staff and faculty; whereas the administration lot will become parking for the students.

The first day of school is Wednesday, August 31.
Senior’s Creations, located on 75 Main Street in downtown Wellsboro, is having a Grand Opening today from 5:30pm until 7:30pm. Rick and Lori Beckwith, owners of Senior’s Creations, are proud to announce the addition of The Main Street Olive Oil Co. to their business endeavors. The new expansion offers a variety of 15 different flavors of balsamic vinegar (from Italy) and 20 flavors of olive oil (from the Mediterranean). They hope to add additional flavors as they determine their customers’ preferences.
