Students Participate In Service Day November 16, 2018

Kraybill Mennonite School held a service day for students in third through eighth grades on Nov. 9. Students traveled to Global Aid Network (GAiN) in Mount Joy.

GAiN is a local organization that helps express the kindness of Jesus through humanitarian aid. It brings relief to those who are suffering while restoring dignity and hope to people around the world.

Seventy-five students, teachers, and parents worked in mixed grade-level groups, packing aid kits, cutting towels, sorting clothes, and creating beaded bracelets. At the end of the day, many students said they enjoyed getting to know students from other grades and having the chance to interact while they worked. They said they also enjoyed being able to provide support and comfort to people from the countries helped by GAiN.

According to principal M.J. Smith, the school has a long-standing tradition of giving to people beyond the school during the holiday season. School supplies and money for supplies is being collected in the school office through Wednesday, Dec. 12. After that date, students in prekindergarten through second grade will work together to pack the school supply kits at school before delivering them to the GAiN warehouse.

Solanco Cross-Country Runners Receive Recognition November 16, 2018

Solanco's cross-country teams officially capped their seasons with an end-of-the-year banquet held at the DoubleTree in Willow Street on Nov. 12. Head coach Craig Ausel and his staff recapped the season and presented awards.

The Coach Harrington Outstanding Runner Award went to seniors Ben Stickler and Aubree Roop. Hannah Wheeler and Dan Keller received the Waggoner Scholar Athlete Award. Receiving the Coach Haines Golden Mule Award were Colin Althoff and Chesley Ledesma. The Coach Rhodes 5th Runner Award recipients were Nathan Eller and Sarah Snyder, while freshmen Avery Jacobsen and Halle Brown received the Solanco XC Alumni Award. Evelyn Billings was presented with the Heart and Soul Award.

The banquet opened with the announcement of Sue Thomas and Nate Spangler as this year's Cross-Country Hall of Fame Award winners presented by former head coach Art Harrington.

In other cross-country news, Dan Keller, Angel Daniel, and Hannah Wheeler were recognized as Scholar Athletes (3.7 GPA or higher) at the Lancaster-Lebanon League Cross Country Banquet on Nov. 5.

Wheeler also received a standing ovation after receiving the L-L League Cross Country Coaches Association's Courageous Runner Award for her journey the past two years. In the spring of 2016, Wheeler underwent tarsal tunnel release surgery in hopes of alleviating foot pain, but the pain spread to her other foot and hands. She began to drop things and frequently tripped because she could not control her feet. As the stress built, her body started to hurt randomly, and within months, at least one part of her body was in pain all of the time.

In 2017, Wheeler visited A.I. duPont Medical Center and was diagnosed with amplified musculoskeletal pain syndrome (AMPS), which is similar to figromyalgia. Wheeler returned to duPont two to three times a week for treatments.

Wheeler's mother shared, "Thankfully, through God's grace, an amazing counselor, and running, she has been able to embrace the pain as a part of life that not only acts as her stress gauge, but as an unconscious comparison of how happy times are to be cherished. A genuine laugh is a joy-filled gift that should not be taken for granted."

Last spring, Wheeler trained for and ran a marathon as a fundraiser for the children of the AMPS unit at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She was hoping to qualify for the Boston Marathon, but at mile 7 her AMPS pain level kicked in and she became violently ill. Although she added 20 minutes to her previous best marathon time, she finished.

Hanna shared that at mile 13 she was going to drop out because she hurt so bad, but when she got to mile 13, she said God reminded her that the children she was running for felt pain like this each and every day.

Running still hurts her feet, and the heat and stress affect her entire body during each and every race. She runs because it is her emotional escape and because she loves to run.

Ausel expressed how Wheeler's leadership and loving spirit contributed to the team this year, and he said that she continues to teach many valuable lessons. "Her courageous spirit teaches us all to be thankful for each and every day and the joy that surrounds us," stated Ausel.

It is because of this journey and her determination that Wheeler received the Courageous Runner Award.
