Golden Apple Gala
On May 13, 2015, the Prevention Network hosted the first ever “Golden Apple Gala” recognizing 40 educators from around the county.  The award honored teachers who show true dedication and leadership to their positions with the following qualities: Dedication to students; School Spirit; Positively influencing colleagues; and Traits that make them unique.  
 
The following South Side teachers were recognized for being nominees:  K-4 Category -- Peggy Cox, Heidi Martin, and Paul Elliott; 9-12 Category -- Kim Zerance, Ron Ledbetter, and Amy Langelli.  In addition to recognizing the nominees, a winner and a runner-up were selected from each category. Peggy Cox was the overall winner in the K-4 Category.  Amy Langelli was the runner-up in the 9-12 Category.
 
Congratulations to all for a job well done.  It was quite an accomplishment for South Side last evening for this first-ever event recognizing teachers for their work throughout Beaver County.
 
Highmark Positive High School of the Year
South Side High School has again been selected as the Pittsburgh Positive Athlete Program’s Positive High School of the Year!  This makes 2 such awards in the last 3 years, and, as an added bonus, this time it will come with a $2,500 check from Highmark to the school's athletic department.  SSHS also had 3 students recognized:  Jimmy Knoerdel was awarded a $500 Boynton Positive Athlete scholarship as the winner of Most Positive Boys Cross Country Athlete, while Cody Campbell and Jesse Romanchak were each awarded $250 C. Harper Scholarships.  The awards were presented by former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward recently at the Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.  Former Pittsburgh Pirates broadcaster Lanny Frattare served as the emcee.  Congrats to these awesome student-athletes and to SSHS!

National Merit Scholar
What do Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s; Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft; Elena Kagan, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court; Ben Bernanke, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve; and South Side senior Tyler Chiccarello have in common?  They were all named National Merit scholars during their senior years in high school.
 
The journey for Tyler began in 2013 when he took the PSAT at South Side High School.  When his results were returned, we learned he would be recognized as a student whose scores placed him in the top one percent of our nation.  Only 15,000 are chosen nationwide to be honored as a National Merit Finalist.  Merit Scholar designees are selected on the basis of their skills, accomplishments, and potential for success in rigorous college studies.  They must demonstrate leadership abilities, participate in school and community activities, and reflect academic honors and distinctions.  After completing a rigorous application process, Finalists are chosen for this unique award.  Congratulations Tyler!
