IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat” is a saying that’s been around the sports world for a long time.  It’s still applicable today and applies to all sports, team or individual.  You have all played sports long enough to be on the winning end of an exciting or unexpected victory.  The same can be said about that devastating loss.  The agony of defeat seems to set in when it happens in your final game.  Whether it’s players playing in the NCAA Tournament or your local high school finale, that last loss is one that stays with you a lifetime.  While it seems like the end of the world the moment it happens, we all know that it isn’t.  Use those disappointing moments to inspire you to move onto bigger and greater things!

Adecco Staffing has an immediate need for temporary production support at Zimmer Biomet.  Positions require a good work history, a positive attitude and the ability to work in a team environment.  You must be 18 to apply.  Both full and part time positions are available.  This could be a good fit for students graduating this year.  Starting pay for general labor is $12/hour.  If you would like to learn more about the open positions, please contact April Marban at, or at 574-549-6228.

The Goshen Band Boosters are hosting a shoe drive through April 9th and would love your help! They’re collecting gently used or new shoes which are then taken to other countries such as Haiti and given to micro-entrepreneurs.  The entrepreneurs refurbish the shoes into usable ones or other items of use and sell them to earn an income to help themselves and their families.  Take a look in your closets or wherever you may keep your shoes and see if you have a pair or two that you would be willing to donate.  You can even donate flip flops.  Bins will be placed around the school (as well as the Goshen area) that have a poster on them with the dos and don’ts of what is an acceptable shoe.  If you would like more information, or have any questions please feel free to contact Kristy Nissley at  *** The Band Boosters are doing a Shoe Drive Blitz TODAY from 3:30-9:00 p.m.  If you bring a pair of shoes you will get a free Redzone cookie while supplies last. Limit 1 per person. ***  Thank you for your help!
