A proposal to install an artificial turf football field at St. Marys Area High School was detailed by Terry Straub, student activities director, during this week's St. Marys Area School District Board of Directors meeting.
The estimated cost of the project stands at $768,000 from ELA Sports with a minimum 12-year life. This is compared to replacing the current field with natural grass at a cost of $150,000 including drainage, irrigation and leveling from Hoopes Turf Farm.
In addition to ringing in the new year, the first week of January also marked the kick off of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, an annual tradition many look forward to.
Girl Scout cookies are among the most well-known brands in the world, but few know about the important skills girls learn from the program including goal setting, money management, decision making, people skills, and business ethics
These are skills that girls use throughout their lives to help them excel, exceed and lead. No university has produced as many female business owners as the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
