• Educational television

    Allie Evans entered the art classroom with an iPad in hand ready to shoot some video and, hopefully, find a few students to interview about their projects. Evans, an eighth-grader, is part of the communications class that writes, films, edits and produces a weekly newscast at Lebanon Middle School.

    "We have a ton of stuff," Evans said after returning in the classroom where she was reviewing that day's video. "And we only use about a third of what we actually take."

  • Graduation set for May 19

    The Class of 2012 will graduate at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 19, at Marion County High School.
    The Marion County Board of Education unanimously approved the change during its meeting Tuesday evening at Lebanon Middle School.
    High School Principal Stacey Hall said he'd received multiple complaints about graduation being rescheduled from May 12 to May 19, but the change was necessary when the last day of school was moved to May 15.
    Hall said under the state law, they can't have graduation before the last day of school.

  • Special project for special kids

    Marion County High School Principal Stacey Hall is empathetic to students with special needs and their parents.

    After all, he has firsthand experience.

    His 14-year-old son, Logan, has autism and is completely non-verbal.

    "Being a parent is hard enough, but being a parent of a special needs child maximizes that pressure 100-fold," Hall said.

  • College touts economic impact and growth

    St. Catharine College President William Huston said when he arrived on campus in 1997, payroll for the 36 full-time employees was $23,000 every two weeks.
    Now, 15 years later, payroll is nearly $300,000 every two weeks to compensate the roughly 150 full-time and 50 part-time employees.
    Huston also said the net assets of the college, or the worth of the college, was $85,000 in 1997.
    “They had no buildings and no land,” he said. “What you saw was Lourdes Hall, and that had been depreciated out.”
