Support for Uceny continues at Plymouth schools registration

PLYMOUTH — Kelly Arce and Kim Richey, both of Plymouth and friends of the Uceny family, are organizing another event to support Plymouth native Morgan Uceny during her quest for gold at the Olympic Games. Arce, a teacher at Jefferson Elementary School, will be present at Plymouth Community School Corporation's student registration days August 1 and 2 at Plymouth High School to help students sign 1500 stars. The stars, which will be cut from construction paper, represent Morgan's event — the 1500 meter run. Arce said that students registering for the school year and their parents will be encouraged to write messages of encouragement for Morgan on the stars. Registration is from 7 to 10 a.m., noon to 3 p.m., and 5 to 7 p.m. August 1, and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m. August 2.
Arce and Richey are also the creators of the rubber bracelets with various slogans supporting Morgan. Arce said that a bundle of three bracelets — red, white, and blue — will be available for $5 beginning August 1 at LifePlex and King's Jewelry. For more information about the bracelets, contact LifePlex at 574-936-2333 or King's Jewelry at 574-936-2399.
