  • A run for awareness, support

  • Pam Conine retires—A lifelong learner, lifelong teacher

    One of Pam Conine’s favorite sayings is that, if you find a career you love, you never have to work a day in your life. By that standard, Conine figures she’s spent almost no time in her adult life actually working. By most standards, though, Conine has worked long and hard.

  • YSHS 2009 valedictorian, salutatorian—Village nurtured YSHS scholars

    Growing up in Yellow Springs was easy and carefree, Olivia Chen said this week. Not having to worry about others labeling her or questioning her identity, she was able to focus on things that were more important and more fun, such as playing tennis, performing theater and developing a deep sense of curiosity about the natural sciences and cultural diversity.
