She was right.
The Culver Girls Academy’s star senior and 2010 IHSAA state cross country champion set a national high school indoor record of 16:35.15 Friday night at New York City’s famed Armory Center and still had enough gas left in the tank for a PR in the mile race Sunday.

March 12, 2011

Students and faculty hope the proverbial third time’s a charm for the student-led “Soup for the Soul” community event slated for Tuesday, March 29, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the Culver Elementary School. For two years running, the event, originally the brainchild of CES 6th grade teacher Missy Trent and art teacher Joyce Lyman, saw 6th graders creating a wide array of hand-made pottery in the form of bowls, ladels, cups, and other items, in which community-donated soup is served to diners from the community, who then take home and keep the student-made items.
