Last night's school board meeting attracted one of the biggest community turnouts in recent memory. Of the many issues on the table, perhaps the biggest issue on debate was wether to eliminate or keep Middle School sports and other after school activities. The School Board opened the floor for discussion for over an hour, where numerous people voiced their opinions about keeping school sports.
There will be a school board meeting tonight focusing on the Middle School athletic programs for next school year. All Middle School athletic programs are in jeopardy of being cut, along with some other coaching positions. Also on the table is the status of the Men's and Women's basketball coaches. The meeting will be held at the High School. If you are in support of Wellsboro's athletic programs, come voice your opinions.
