The Youth Village offers summer field trips, fitness workshops, STEM day at Hurlburt Feld, a student art gallery and a final field trip to Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Panama City.

In addition, the Youth Village seeks part-time summer help.

The Okaloosa Schools/Cox Communications Academic Tournament reaches its final matches, with matches 10 and 11 determining the teams that go to the finals.

With doubleheader wins, Collegiate High School eliminated Niceville High School, 215-155, and Choctawhatchee High School, 235-125.

Capt. Gabe Seabrook engineered victory with Eric Fowler, Collin McGovern, Jackson Freeman and Coach De Cook.

Niceville High Coach Justin Reichard had a good season with Capt. William Rood, Ryan Erickson, Joshua Mills, Liam Ordner and Ella Joslin.

Representing Choctaw valiantly were Capt. Cole Browning, Justin Barraca, Mason Newman, Ethan Fekety, Eric Chavez and Coach Kathy Moore.

Academic tournament coordinator Carol Bernich said Rocky Bayou Christian Academy takes on Collegiate in the final matches.

“It is a double-elimination tournament, so Collegiate will have to beat undefeated Rocky Bayou twice in order to win the tournament,” Bernich added.

The Walton High School Anchor Club earned first place at the state convention in three categories: the Buddy Walk for the Brain-Related Disorders category; the Hometown Heroes project for Patriotism; and the Stanley House goodie baskets for the Pick-Me-Ups.

The school’s club is one of the smallest in its competitive division, going up against clubs nearly twice its size.

The Paxton School Students of the Month for February include elementary student Scotlyn Jones, middle school student Emily Sanders and high school student Summer Miller.
