    According to the Engineering/Technology Educators of Indiana, Erica Ruckman is an exemplary teacher. At least that is what they indicated when awarding her with the Middle School Teacher Excellence award at this year’s Engineering/Technology Educators of Indiana state conference on November 2, 2009.
    Erica is a third year teacher at Highland Hills Middle School in Georgetown. She is currently teaching four periods per day of Technology Education, one period per day of PAWS, and dedicates the 1st period each day to working with a group of students to develop The Summit (HHMS’s yearbook) and The Jaguar News Report (a daily news broadcast that is aired to the entire school each day).
    The Middle School Teacher Excellence award is given each year by the Engineering/Technology Educators of Indiana (E/TEI) to an Engineering/Technology educator who goes above and beyond the normal classroom requirements.  Erica is the secretary for E/TEI and has attended the state conference each of the three years since she has been out of college. Erica has been a presenter at the state conference once and plans to be again in the future.

Highlanders gain finals in football sectional; defeat New Albany 34-28 to get there PDF Print E-mail

    The Floyd Central Highlanders used grit and determination in a 34-28 win over nemesis New Albany in the semi finals of the Class 4A football sectional. The Highlanders will play Castle in the finals of their sectional in a home game for the sectional title Friday night.
    It was anything but a cakewalk for the Highlanders in the win. A driving rain for the third Friday night in the last four weeks made for a messy playing field.
    The wind clocked in at around 25 miles per hour in the first half, and Floyd got off to a 21-7 lead after a quarter of play.
    Max Guenther was the Highlander responsible for throwing the passes that led to all three 1st quarter touchdowns.
    New Albany struck first, though, when Jalen Forrest ran 89 yards for the score off of scrimmage.
    Floyd answered when Guenther threw a 28 yard pass to Kyle Bramble for a score, and after three New Albany turnovers, Guenther threw a 46 yard pass to Matt Lowe for the second of the three 1st quarter Highlander touchdowns.
