Upshur Stars

Upshur Stars were recognized during the Board of Education meeting on July 6th.

ART26201 recently held the Young Storytellers Camp focused on the traditional Appalachian art of storytelling. High School students had the opportunity to participate in the week long camp in late June, where they were instructed by Doug Van Gundy, Jason A Young, and Jamie Froemel. Upshur County Schools was supportive in sponsoring the camp, and we are proud of our students for taking the opportunities to engage in this exciting experience. Student participants included Lila Wright, Ella McNeish, Haley Butcher, Evan Linger, Jessie Sandberg, Lyryk Jefferson, Autumn Carpenter, Harlee Gillum, Addison Tenney, and Avery (Tyler) Brown.

Student athletes demonstrate excellence, perseverance, and teamwork, through their academic performances and games. Based on their dedication and athletic efforts, the West Virginia Sports Writer’s Association voted two students as Class AAA All-State Baseball players. Zach Calef-Boring and Cam Tenney represented Upshur County and Buckhannon-Upshur High School on the 2022 All-State Team, and it is with great pleasure that we recognize them for their dedication and diligence in receiving this honor.

Attendees ventured to Charleston, where they participated in internships to learn more about government and entrepreneurship. Students, Sammie Shay, Mary Ellen Adams, and Rosie Shackleford, submitted applications and underwent a competitive review process to participate.

Congratulations to all Upshur Stars! 💙
