Elk Lake junior Molly Copeland led the Elk Lake Forensics Team by earning Top Speaker honors at the Potomac Falls HS Debate Tournament in Herndon, VA on January 21.
Copeland earned 112 out of a possible 120 points in Varsity Lincoln-Douglas Debate to capture the Speaker Point title. Her win/loss record was not good enough to allow her to advance to the elimination rounds.

In Varsity Student Congress, Max McKeon led the team by placing 7th out of 31 competitors. Teammates Brad Flower and Matt Wallikas placed 9th and 11th respectively in the same field.
“This was a very strong showing for our team outside of our regular competition area. This will definitely help us later in the season,” commented Elk Lake Forensics Director Keith Brosious.
On January 28, the EL Forensics Team traveled to Lake Lehman HS to compete at the last Scranton CFL tournament before the league’s National Qualifier in March. The team will wrap up its regular season on February 10-12 at the North Hills Invitational in suburban Pittsburgh.
Susquehanna County Dairy Ambassador
Recently at Montrose Area High School a milk vending machine was placed in the cafeteria. The organization of getting the machine placed in the school began last year by high school Principal Douglas Wilcox, but the year quickly came to an end and Mr. Wilcox retired. This year Mr. Ognosky, Superintendent and new high school Principal Mr. Tallarico quickly took over the job working with Farm Bureau and the Susquehanna County Dairy Princess/Promotion Program. The machine is in place and filled by Legg’s Dairy several times a week with a variety of flavored milk, chocolate, strawberry and vanilla as well as regular white milk. Many students use the machine in the morning during breakfast and during their lunch period. The students also have access to the machine after school. I have heard many students comment on ‘enjoying having the option of ice cold milk anytime of the school day’.
Susquehanna County Dairy Ambassador Abbey Puzo presents a check to MASD Superintendent Michael Ognosky in support of milk vending at Montrose High School.
On January 13, I presented a check to Mr. Ognosky. The check was from local dairy farmers presented through the Susquehanna County Farm Bureau who support milk vending in schools. I feel that this is another step toward improving student’s health at MAHS.
