PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Gloria Kerr is a familiar face. You may recognize her as the president of the Garden Club. Or perhaps you have seen her and the rest of the Garden Club working hard around the community, planting and doing beautification projects.
At Wednesday night's school board meeting, Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe said that two elementary schools in the Punxsy District have received the Governor's Award for Excellence in Academics â€” Bell Township and Longview.
Both schools scored over 90 percent for the 2012-2013 school profile.
Each building received a proclamation from the governor.

The Past to Present Machinery Association held its annual show over the weekend at the Sykesville Fairgrounds.
Over three days, tractors and equipment both old and new were out on the grounds, alongside a number of other farm-related displays.
Activities included tractor pulls for farm tractors, garden tractors and antique tractors, a pedal tractor pull, tractor games and a parade of tractors, as well as music by The Moore Brothers.
