Congratulations to Kate Martin for earning a gold medal, the highest honor, at the State Science Fair last weekend. Erik Rocha and Addison Gosslin are this year’s winners of the Joliet Chamber Scholarships, congratulations to each of you! Finally, we are very proud to have a Kazma Scholarship winner this year in Brett Hulbert! Our Flyers are on a roll!
