COLUMBIA CITY â€” Passionate. Dedicated. Loyal. Dependable. Reliable. Those are all words long-time Columbia City High School Athletic Director Geoff Penrod used to describe one of the schoolâ€™s greatest servants â€” Andrew Thompson. From the classroom to the sports arena, Thompson helps out wherever he can.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Whitley Countyâ€™s YMCA recently welcomed Tara Kuhmichel as the Early Learning Childcare director. In July, the YMCA took over where Stepping Stones Day Care left off. After the day care program was closed, most of the Stepping Stones staff made the switch to the YMCAâ€™s Early Learning Childcare program.
The childcare program was a first for the YMCA, but Executive Director Erica Miller saw the community need and worked quickly to fill in the gap. Now the early learning center has a new director and is continuing to grow the program it so quickly took on.
