    The loss of a young life is always tragic, but two local young people hope to find meaning in that tragedy. The meaning sought by Elise Giardullo and Gabe Amrhein is their attempt to save other lives by educating young adults on the dangers of texting while driving.

  • ‘Potterluck’ pushes fun, literacy

    Yellow Springs High School seniors R.C. Worrell, left, and Phillip Kellogg are holding a two-part Harry Potter-themed event this weekend as their senior project, hoping to both entertain their peers and to raise money for literacy. The event, at Yellow Springs High School, begins with a 6 p.m. potluck on Saturday, April 9, followed by a 9 p.m. lock-in. Proceeds from the potluck and lock-in, which each have a suggested $5 donation, will benefit Book Aid, a British literacy organization. (Photo by Kelsey Cundiff)

    The senior project requirements given to every senior at Yellow Springs High School state that each student’s project should “reflect a meaningful purpose that is either geared toward social action and community, self-education and growth, or education and facilitation.” This year’s group of seniors has taken those ideals to heart to produce a number of projects that could benefit the community.
