You’ll see that the McDowell Girls Cross Country team won the District 10 AAA title led by junior Kelsey Swantek — she won the AAA race.
More news? The McDowell Marching Band took 2nd in a huge competition and the girls soccer team won a District 10 championship while raising $4,500 for The Epilepsy Project.
And that was just over the weekend. The site shares only good news from community, schools, families, teachers, students, parents and friends.
Who started it? School board member Judy Wheaton joined Genene Mattern and Brian Kramer, also a school board member, in creating and maintaining the site. “As you know I have tried to share good stories with people for years and thought this might be a better avenue,” Wheaton told me in an e-mail. “I believe this has proven to be the correct move.”
Many others are involved in the site anonymously. The Facebook page has 585 likes this morning, but it’s only been around a short time. I expect that to increase in a hurry.
