Pottstown’s ‘Trojan Men’ aid national tour to fight cancer with TV appearance, Mercury 2-20-2017

By Evan Brandt

In a not-so-unique “twist,” Pottstown High School’s Trojan Man mascot is gaining a reputation as a real childhood cancer fighter.

Two Trojan Men (there are actually 14) made an appearance on the Fox 29 morning program “Good Morning Philadelphia” Monday to kick off a national campaign to combat childhood cancer.

They were there as part of a group organized by Mascots for a Cure, an Oregon-based non-profit that raises money for children’s cancer research using school and sports mascots.

It is Mascots for a Cure that has championed the “Twist Challenge” video dance campaign on social media that uses the Chubby Checker classic to raise awareness and money for the cause.  

Wrestlers Move On

Congratulations to the entire Trojan Wrestling Team for their outstanding effort at the PAC Championships. The team placed 7th overall in one of the most competitive conferences in Southeast Pa. They represented our school and community with effort, pride and sportsmanship. Six Trojans qualified to advance to the District I West Tournament, keeping alive their dream to make it to the State Championships. Placing 6th were Anthony Wiggins and Aiden Weber. Nat Parson was 4th and Tom Doyle 3rd. Alex Caballero and Isaiah Mayes made it to the finals where they both placed 2nd. Trojan Wrestling, another reason to say Proud to be from Pottstown.  

Hill School plays a role in revitalization, Mercury 2-19-17

By Evan Brandt

A neighborhood revitalization project that began with small steps and big dreams last year is poised to take a $5 million step forward.

Hobart’s Run, the effort named after the stream that runs through the neighborhood and was kicked off last year by The Hill School, will soon become its own non-profit entity that will enable it to receive outside funding and grants to expand and advance its goals.

Most visible in the past year sponsoring neighborhood cleanups — in all kinds of weather — improvements to Edgewood Cemetery and providing a weekly outdoor lunch programs for local restaurants on Hill School grounds, Hobart’s Run has also been working quietly to strengthen the bonds and finances of the surrounding residents.

“I’m really excited about the progress we’ve made and the community momentum,” said Twila Fisher, the program’s executive director.
