Congrats to Cooper Wren on his first deer he shot. A 3-point buck weighing 111 lbs. Way to go !!! He recently donated a sum of money to the EMHS Children's Miracle Network from his lemonade stand and cookies sale he did each race at the Back Fourty he attended. He donated $700.00 from his sales. What a nice idea he had, so proud of this young man.

Most Valuable Coach

US Cellular had a contest for the most valuable coach in the nation. Luis Ayala of Foxcroft Academy was nominated and many of us were voting for him through facebook.  We voted daily for it seemed like eternity, haha !! He won $5,000. Award as a popular soccer and wrestling coach, putting him in the top 15 coaches.  After all was said and done by the judge's...yes, ..He recently won the Award for the Nation's Most Valuable Coach $50,000. for his athletics program. On Monday US Cellular will be presenting the check at FA in Dover Foxcroft. On Jan. 4th he will be honored in Florida at the US All America game in Orlando, Fla. He is one fine wrestling coach evidenced with all the support of his students, former students, his army friends, and all of his Community and beyond that has supported him. A very deserving time for the Ayala's. His wife Angela I met on facebook through my granddaughter Sara. What an honor to the Ayala Family this is. Congrats to ALL !!!
