CENTERBURG — It looks like Centerburg High School will not have the Wellness Center as of Dec. 31, said superintendent of schools Dorothy Holden when the Centerburg Board of Education met in regular session Monday evening. Holden reported on several meetings with various groups concerning the Wellness Center at the high school, and said Mohican Sports Medicine, which currently operates the center, will not negotiate another agreement unless the school board kicks in $30,000 to make up the salary shortfalls for the Wellness Center staff.
Various scenarios were suggested, and Holden said a recent discussion regarding the operation of the Wellness Center with representatives from Knox Community Hospital was “promising.” She said a number of options are still being explored with regard to at least providing equipment for the use of student athletes, but nothing concrete has been decided.
On a more positive note, district accomplishments were highlighted when State Rep. Margaret Ann Ruhl presented a commendation to the middle school for being designated Excellent with Distinction, and to the high school for being Excellent on the 2009-10 report card. The board also passed resolutions in recognition of individual golfers and golf team accomplishments. The boys golf team was the Mid-Buckeye Conference champion
team and finished sixth in the state. Garrison Myles was third overall, was named MBC Golfer of the Year and made first team Ohio.
