INDIANAPOLIS â€” A local business leader has been recognized for his service by the Chamber of Commerce of the state of Indiana.
Part of the festivities at Tuesday nightâ€™s annual Chamber Awards Banquet in Indianapolis was the announcement that the Chamberâ€™s award for outstanding Indiana Chamber volunteers would be known as the Sam C. Schlosser award.
The honor was not a total surprise to Schlosser, who has been the President of his familyâ€™s business â€” Plymouth Foundry â€” since 1984.
PLYMOUTH â€” The Plymouth High School Spell Bowl team is heading for state competition Saturday, Nov. 13, at Purdue.
The team, coached by PHS English teacher Amy Schmeltz, accumulated the third highest score in the state in regional competition for its class.
â€śIâ€™ve never coached a team before. I couldnâ€™t be more pleased with their progress,â€ť Schmeltz said.
The Spell Bowl differs slightly from the traditional spelling bee in that the contestants write out the words rather than spelling them verbally.
