COLUMBIANA – Bridget Wolsonovich was recognized as Key Clipper on Tuesday. Wolsonovich was recognized for her willingness to help throughout the district in several areas.
“Besides doing a fantastic job at what we hired her to do, she was invaluable,” said high school principal David Buzzard.
The school board and other members of the administration agreed that the district needed more staff like Wolsonovich.
“We see her jump at every opportunity”, said Superintendent Donald Mook.
Foodservice manager Tina Minamyer orders food ahead of time in an attempt to cut costs and maintain food quality. She said that getting chicken products was a challenge.
“The chicken product is there, there is no one to package it, no one to ship it and then there are the truck drivers” Minamyer said.
Events are in full swing throughout the neighborhood.
Columbiana will be holding a Hall of Fame Induction from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday at Columbiana High School. Those present are requested to provide proof of vaccination or a negative Covid test within the last 48 hours.
“What happens outside impacts us much more than the structure that takes place inside” Mook said.
The district and community cheering rally will be held from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. today at Firestone Park ahead of the Hall of Fame game.
Elementary Principal Joshua Dixon, Kimberly Sharshan, has planned several activities after the rally.
A stadium fundraiser will take place today from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the training ground behind the park visitors’ stands.

The juniors and a few seniors will attend a skilled trades show at Canfield Fairground this month.
The programs that were suspended last year are back. These programs include character development programs, an Aiming High substance abuse prevention program, and a Girls Who Code program.
Eighth grade students receive Chromebooks all week.
“They are very excited. They see this as a great responsibility ”, said college principal Jason Martin.

“We are very enthusiastic about this”, Martin said.
Oasis Ministries provided shelves and food for a pantry to set up at Joshua Dixon Elementary for families in need.
