What is Excellence in Education?

“The purpose of the Excellence in Education program is to celebrate excellence in teaching and honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the students of Indiana County. This initiative, in partnership with the Colonial Family of Dealerships, will highlight teachers from each of the seven-county public school districts as well as Indiana County Technology Center (ICTC) throughout the school year and will culminate with the Indiana County Excellence in Education Award Banquet in May. One student and one teacher will be selected at this banquet, with each being awarded a brand-new automobile donated by Colonial.”

"Remember there is good in this world, and bad, and ugly." -Unknown Welcome to The Stinger! My name is Molly Spence, I am a class of 2026 sophomore student and the assistant editor for The Stinger. I am involved in the Newspaper, Marion Center Marching Band as part of the color guard, Athena Club, United Way, and Plumville Belles as a majorette and assistant coach. When I'm not here at school, I am with my ducks. I have two ducks that mean the world to me. I love ducks, they're an important part of my life. This is my second year in Newspaper, and second year as assistant editor. I have been in ATHENA for two years and am currently one of the secretaries for the club. By being a part of The Stinger, I want to make everyone's voice heard and leave no one behind, because after all, we, Marion Center high school students, are all in this together.
