Lancaster's Pam Bosser named Central Ohio Athletic Director of the Year

LANCASTER – Pam Bosser’s enthusiasm for her job shines through and she understands her job is to make Lancaster student-athletes have the best experience possible they can have.

Bosser’s hard work has not gone unnoticed by her peers. Bosser was named 2019-2020 Central Ohio Athletic Director of the Year by the Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.

She will receive her award in November at the state conference meeting of athletic directors from around the state.

Remote learning becomes the new normal for high school students during the pandemic
LANCASTER - Clay Hartzler, an engineering and algebra teacher at Lancaster High School, led the class discussion on the Monday after spring break, asking the kids what they'd done with their families.

A few of them had binge-watched shows, some had worked on projects around the house and most of them might have slacked on their classwork.

As they caught up and shared their stories around break, it almost felt like the students were back in a classroom at the high school instead of speaking to each other through their laptops or cellphones.
