LARWILL â€” Whitko Middle Schoolâ€™s new assistant principal is looking for ways to invest in more students.
Michael McClain, Jr. officially took his role as assistant principal Monday, and his recently-acquired position transitions him from an eighth-grade language arts teacher at Lakeview Middle School, Warsaw, to second in command at the middle school.
COLUMBIA CITY â€” As each year passes, the importance of technology increases for Whitley County Consolidated Schools.
Anne Plunkett, technology director for WCCS, shared with the board of school trustees areas of progress within her department in the past year.
Relocating to Indian Springs Middle School was perhaps the largest change for the department.
The move took several steps, but Plunkett said the new location at ISMS is serving the department well.
The sky over Columbia City was lit up with a fireworks show Wednesday evening for the Fourth of July holiday. Morsches Park was flooded with people of all ages for pre-fireworks activities, such as a bounce house and music by the â€śJunkyard Band.â€ť See today's issue (July 5, 2013) of The Post & Mail for more photos.
