Way to go, Mckenzie

Mckenzie Divelbiss, daughter of Doug and Lori Divelbiss, was recently awarded a certificate for maintaining the highest grade-point average for three years at Clear Spring Middle School.

Mckenzie is an avid athlete, participating in soccer, basketball, softball and volleyball. Mckenzie attends Mooresville Church of God and is active in her community, decorating rooms at Plumb Grove for Christmas in Clear Spring and helping with the Fourth of July Independence Jam.

If you see Mckenzie, congratulate her for the accomplishment.

Did you know?

Did you know that during World War I, Clear Spring had a community room, which served as a place where local soldiers could come and unwind? After the war, the Clear Spring Library was open there. All of this was run by volunteers, and funded by suppers and plays put on by the Masks and Whigs Club.
