New School Director Appointed to School Board
Congratulations to John Fink of Canonsburg, who on Aug. 20 was appointed to serve on the Canon-McMillan School Board.
Mr. Fink, the owner of McMurray Heating and Cooling, will serve through Dec. 6, 2015 in the seat vacated because of the death of school director Eric Kline.
In November – the next municipal election - a candidate will be elected to finish out the remainder of Mr. Kline’s two-year term. The new director will be seated Dec. 7.
Mr. Kline, who served multiple terms as a school director and was an advocate and supporter of all things Canon-Mac, died July 31.

Members of the Canon-McMillan High School girls basketball team volunteered Aug. 4 at the Greater Washington County Food Bank’s Produce to People food distribution.
The girls – as well as several of their family members - counted, bagged and distributed produce, helped recipients carry items to their cars; helped fold up tables and carts and sweep tables.
“They worked hard and were cheerful and kind, representing Canon-Mac well,” Lisa Allen, the Lady Mac Hoops Booster Club secretary said.
Produce to People is the Food Bank’s large-scale produce distribution program that helps supplement what local families receive from the pantry. Each family receives 30-50 pounds of food, which is mostly fresh produce. There is one distribution each month throughout the year.

CMHS Students Win Bass Fishing Competition, Make it to Nationals
Congratulations are in order for two Canon-McMillan High School students who won first-place at a recent bass fishing competition.
Nick Fulks and John Eckels won first place at the West Virginia Bass Nation High School Championship at Stonewall Jackson Lake on May 2.
Representing West Virginia, they then competed at the Costa Bassmaster High School National Championship July 22-25 on Kentucky Lake in Tennessee, where they placed 61 out of 136 teams across the nation.
But that wasn’t the first championship for the pair. Also this year, the boys took first place at the Pennsylvania Bass Nation High School Western Qualifier and third place at the Pennsylvania Bass Nation High School State Championship.
CMS Accepting Donations for School Supplies Drive
Canonsburg Middle School Student Council members and their peers worked diligently last year to organize – and collect for – a school-supplies drive that will benefit families in the Canon-Mac community that may need a little help this fall.
That effort will culminate Aug. 13 with the distribution of 125 backpacks filled with school supplies at the McDonald’s restaurant in Canonsburg from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The event was possible in part because of the partnership with Ron Galiano, owner of the borough McDonalds, as well as Jeffrey’s Drug Store and Canonsburg Mayor David H. Rhome.
Because of the overwhelming amount of calls to the middle school from community members wishing to support the second-annual school supplies drive, the CMS main office will be accepting donation from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Aug. 31 through Sept. 4.
For those who wish to donate, but are not quite sure what items are most needed, here are some suggestions:
New Muse Elementary School Site Plan Approved, Project Moving Forward
The Cecil Township Board of Supervisors on Thursday approved the site plan for the $31 million Muse Elementary School project - a procedural move necessary for Canon-McMillan School District to move forward with its construction plans.
The decision was made at a special meeting held at the behest of the district, which intends to bid out the project in August.
Canon-Mac Stadium Project Moving Along
The turf installation at Big Mac Stadium is scheduled to be complete THIS Friday and the track resurfacing is scheduled to begin on Monday. All in all, the project is progressing well, despite the above-average rainfall this summer!

Canon-McMillan School District Accepting Nominations for Hall of Honor
Through July 30, the Canon-McMillan School District will be accepting nominations for its Hall of Honor, which recognizes individuals who, through their accomplishments or contributions, have distinguished themselves in academia, athletics, arts, citizenry or valor.
Alumni and community members 30 years of age or older who have made significant contributions to the Canon-McMillan School District community are eligible for nomination.
Categories for the Hall of Honor include: Academia, athletics, the arts, citizenry and valor.
The first class of five members was inducted into the Hall of Honor, which is on display in the atrium of Canon-McMillan High School, in 2007.
High school Principal David Helinksi said nominations stay active for two years.
Once the nominating period is over, members of the Hall of Honor will vote to see which candidates will be included in the new class, and Helinski said they will be unveiled at a home football game.
New members will be inducted at a banquet in their honor next year, when their plaques will be unveiled. They will also be recognized with certificates from the Pennsylvania state House and the U.S. Congress.
Paper nominations are available at 314 Elm St. Ext. A digital version of the form may be accessed by visiting the Canon-McMillan High School web page here.
They should be returned to:
