Class reunion

Dear classmate: Youngsville High School has a summer tradition you will not want to miss. It is a family reunion-style get-together for all Y.H.S. alumni and guests who have graduated at least 50 years ago.

This year, the Y.H.S. class of 1967 will host the honored class of 1968. Mark July 9 on your calendars to attend this event.

Organizers ask that you bring a covered dish to share. Beverages and sandwich fixings, and plates and silverware will be furnished.

The party starts at noon at the Youngsville Fire Hall.

For more information, call (814) 563-4389.

Halls of Ivy

Scott A. Vasilisin, Warren graduate, class of 2015, and son of Kathryn Giunta, graduated Magna Cum Laude from West Virginia University on May 11, where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Finance with an area of emphasis in investments.

Vasilisin also obtained a minor degree in Economics.

While maintaining a 3.83 GPA, he was also part of the WVU Student Managed Investment Fund where he worked as an Equity Research Analyst for the financial sector of the portfolio. Due to an extraordinary return within a six-month period of time, Scott was promoted to Senior Equity Research analyst where he managed a team of analysts and made strategic decisions for the restructuring of the equitable securities in the heavily weighted and most volatile sector of the S&P 500 Index. Much deserved thanks to Dr. Boyd for all the incredible experiences, knowledge and connections she’s given him over the last two years.

Scott was also a member of the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity for four years while at WVU.

In the summer of 2018, he accepted an internship at Tapestry/Coach Inc. in the financial systems department located in Hudson Yards, New York City.

Vasilisin has accepted a position in New York City with Global Trading Securities where he will be rotating work between the Floor of the New York Stock Exchange and the Wall Street office. He will begin his journey in September 2019.

Hopewell Campground reopens

The USDA Forest Service – Allegheny National Forest has completed the routine maintenance and hazard abatement on the Hopewell Campground, a boat accessible campground on the Allegheny Reservoir.

The temporary closure was necessary for the public’s safety. The Forest Service has been working diligently to update maintenance and address hazards within the campground in order to re-open it as quickly and safely as possible.

The Hopewell Campground is now open, effective Tuesday, July 2, 2019.

The Forest Service is still working on the Handsome Lake campground and it remains closed. We ask that the public refrain from utilizing Handsome Lake until such work is complete.
