Proud to live here


There are times as a school board member I can witness something special that occurs in Walnut Township Local Schools. This past weekend was one of those times.

The annual Alumni Basketball Tournament was held as it usually does as a fund raiser for the football team. There are too many people to name, but this year the football coaches and the booster club decided that the money raised would go to a better cause then athletics.

One of our past graduates has cancer and the money raised was given to help her in her battle with the disease. I have come to learn that whenever there is a crisis in our little school community, the graduates rally around the cause and will do the right thing.

Thanks goes to all the teams that played, the coaches that organized the event and the booster club. When our coaches and community members perform these acts of kindness, I am proud and grateful that my family lives in this community.
