LAPAZ/LAKEVILLE â Can you update your image to reflect your modern approach to education? Yes, you can, if Union North School Corporation is the example.
LaVille Jr. /Sr. High School has recently completed some inexpensive but effective changes to its physical plant to do just that.

BREMEN â Last year Bremenâs girls tennis team split the Northern State Conference title with Jimtown. Not that theyâre greedy, but this yearâs Lady Lions would like nothing better than to keep the NSC championship all to themselves.
