Juniors Visit Wayne County Emergency Management/Operations Center

On November 14th, five Wallenpaupack Area High School juniors travelled to the Wayne County Emergency Management/Operations Center. The second session of the Junior Leadership Northern Poconos Program consisted of an overview of law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Special Agent Larry Whitehead discussed gang life, including recruiting members in high schools, and explained his leadership role in establishing an Anti-Gang Task Force in our region. Additionally, Wayne County District Attorney Edwards described the leadership she has demonstrated to address the area's drug epidemic, discussed her role as Chief Law Enforcement Officer, and provided an overview of our criminal justice system. She concluded her session by emphasizing the value of servant leadership. Afterward, Wayne County DA Chief Detective Peter Hower presented information on visual drug identification. During the day's final session, the students toured the Wayne County Correctional Facility.

Buckhorn Cheer Squad Brings Home the Trophies

The Wallenpaupack Area High School Varsity CoEd Cheerleaders brought home three first-place trophies and two second-place trophies at the 12th Annual Misericordia Cougar Challenge. With over 30 teams in the afternoon session, the Buckhorns had one of the top three scores of the day and were awarded for Best in Stunt, against some stiff competition. Now they prepare for the District 2 Championship on December 3rd.

Good Luck on the road to States and Nationals!
