Ben Sheckler, Sparta Athlete of the Week

In writing articles for “My Town,” I would like to highlight kids that always seem to be doing good deeds along with all their studies in school. Too often the publicity is focused on the negative side of teens.

I would like recognize Ben Sheckler, a senior at Sparta High School. Ben is the captain of the basketball team, averaging 16 points and 11 rebounds per game. He also is a great baseball player for the school.

Ben carries a 3.57 GPA in school. Great job Ben!

Sparta Schools lead Toys for Tots School Campaign

Sparta Schools lead Toys for Tots School Campaign

Right now it appears that Sparta Schools are leaving all others in the dust with their Toys for Tots collection. As of today, they have collected 1302 toys for less fortunate children in our areas.

I spoke with Kim in the Principal's office and asked her if there was an incentive, with the large abundance of toys they have collected to date and she said Sparta School students have always given their all during the Toys for Tots campaign. The only thing she could think of was that the reward for kids collecting the most for their class, is that they are rewarded with hot chocolate and donuts. Well deserved reward for such good deeds.
