Catherine Bilodeau and Miguel Catala each brought home Silver Emblems for their work in Agricultural Communication, Alexa Chase and Karolina Gilmore earned Silver Emblems for their work in Agricultural Sales, Heather Berlo earned a Silver Emblem in Dairy Cattle Handling, and Dylan Sullivan earned silver in the Job Interview event. All other SST students and teams earned bronze emblems for their efforts.

  • 'A Midwinter Night's Scream'

    Sanborn Regional High School students put the “shake” back in Shakespeare during two public performances held in the school auditorium, celebrating Sanborn’s Shakespeare Month. Students found that Shakespeare was written to be performed, not to be read. The young men and women dedicated themselves to a month-long intensive workshop (more than twenty students) that culminated in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Scream’, written and directed by Donna Devlin-Young.
