Slippery Rock board establishes new scholarship

The Slippery Rock Area School District board on Monday, March 27, approved the establishment of the Amy Raabe Scholarship, a stand-alone scholarship fund in memory of Raabe. She died earlier this month after battling cancer.

Raabe was a Slippery Rock Area High School graduate, district resident and registered dietitian. She had a passion for nutrition and pioneered the Youngstown State University athletics sports nutrition program and served as a dietetic technician. She was active throughout her children’s sports careers and supportive of both the district and the community.

Raabe’s family requested that in lieu of flowers, memorial donations be sent to Slippery Rock Area School District. In the near future, a link will be provided on the district’s website for donations.

Board member sworn in; employee honored

Jessica Twentier, of Harrisville, newly elected Region I board member, took her oath of office. Region I represents Mercer and Slippery Rock townships and Harrisville.

Twentier has two young children in the district, is an active member of the Parent Teacher Organization and is involved with youth sports. She will fill the role until the first Monday in December.

“I want to be a voice for the kids,” she said.
