Congratulations to 12th grader, Nicholas Williams, for being the winner of this year’s “No Excuses” Distracted Driving Billboard Contest.  The contest was sponsored by PennDot, the Highway Safety Network, AAA East Central, and State Farm.  Nicholas received his award at a special recognition ceremony at Yough Senior High School.

Nicholas’ Billboard can be found at the intersection of Routes 136 and 31 near West Newton. 

He received a check for $1,000 and the high school art department received another $1,000.  In addition, he received a Certificate of Special Recognition from the Westmoreland County Commissioners, represented by Commissioner Doug Chew as well as receiving praise from Representative Eric Davanzo; both were in attendance.

Nicholas’ work was the result of art teacher, Therese Berkey, who encouraged Nicholas to enter the contest.



Recently, our high school choir did a community outreach "Lasagna Love" to some in our school community who need a little extra help.  Thanks to Mr. Chris Ritz and his students for organizing this charitable activity and to those who donated ingredients.
