William “Bill” Byers was a beloved teacher in Washington County. He taught 42 years for the county school system, the last 29 as a driver's education teacher at Williamsport High School, where he taught countless teenagers to drive. Bill knew a lot about what was going on in the community from the back-seat conversations of students awaiting their turn at the wheel, said his wife of 68 years, Ruby. “My dad, he knew everything going on in the high school,” said son Joseph “Joe” Byers of Hagerstown.

Everybody cares about each other and we just have fun,” said Williamsport volleyball coach Emily Crabtree, the organizer of the event.

Each Sunday since mid-April a league of 36 peppy 4- and 5-year-olds have gathered at Springfield Middle School to participate in the Williamsport Youth Soccer program's U-6 clinic headed by North Hagerstown High School girls soccer coach Rick Aleshire. Aleshire receives help each week from the program's vice president, Rodney Reed, and he also relies heavily on a quartet of volunteers from Williamsport High School's girls soccer team who selflessly donate their time to teach the game they share a passion for. “I love sharing my love for the sport and showing kids how much fun it is,” junior Erin Palmer said.
