In the middle of September, Jessica Owrutsky, Brianna Lehr, and Madison Lester from Red Lion, and other selected amounts of students were chosen from each school district in York County to attend a youth mental health alliance conference at Wyndham Garden York Hotel.
During this meeting, the youth came together and talked about how to make Mental Health more known throughout York County, and created a name for the alliance called The Silence Ends Here supported with the hashtag “I am because you are”.
The reason behind this group is to reach out to people who are struggling with a mental health issue or who know someone who is struggling. The goal is to let them know that they are not alone, and that arms are always open.
The Silence Ends Here has had two other meetings since September.
The most recent meeting included several panelists who hold government and federal positions, who were asked several questions relating to mental health and how to make it more acknowledged.
The Silence Ends Here is just a group of young people, who are trying to crush the stigma of Mental Health, in the idea that Mental Health issues are not fake or “crazy” but all too real.
Update: Due to low ticket sales, SnoCo has been cancelled. Previous sales will be refunded. If you bought a ticket go to D108 to receive a refund on Feb. 21 in the morning.

Picture this; you’re standing in the old gymnasium of the Red Lion High School. The room is decked out wall to wall like a winter wonderland, music from a DJ is pumping and students are dancing wildly in the middle of the floor. Fast forward to to the end of February and that is exactly what you will see.
Contrary to popular belief, the next dance to look forward to this school year is not prom. On February 25, 2017, Red Lion Student Council will be hosting the first ever winter homecoming, or SnoCo, at the high school.

One day a year, the Red Lion Area Senior High School’s cafeteria is turned into a center for innovation and research. Students from every grade contribute to this event of creativity and learning. The high school held its third in-house science fair to display the hard work and investigative talents of its student body on Jan. 29.
Professionals in various fields of science and technology judged about 150 projects Even though the number of participants was lower than last year, the boards still had a large range of topics, with everything from personality types and plant growth to video games and solar panels.
Since students can research any field of science, these projects extended across multiple subjects and incorporated skills from a plethora of areas. This made the fair very diverse.
