There was a packed house at Market Street Elementary School on Monday as athletic teams and individuals were honored. Among the individuals was Boardman wrestler Michael O'Horo.

"Michael placed fifth in the state," said a proud wrestling coach Don Mancini. "He will be heading to Saginaw State University, but will be playing football."

O'Horo placed fifth at the state competition at the beginning of March, where he wrestled in the 170 pound weight class. He went 46-8 this season that added to his career record of 134-29.

Proud parents Lisa and Mark Slipkovich join their son Santino Slipkovich as a packed house at the Boardman Board of Education meeting applauds his winning the regional spelling bee.

Another individual honored at the board meeting was sixth grade Regional Spelling Bee champion Santino Slipkovich, son of Lisa and Mark Slipkovich. Santino went through numerous rounds at the Regionals and won on the word "valedictorian."

Santino will be making the trip to Washington D.C. in May to take part in the national spelling bee.

At the board meeting, Santino was given a proclamation from School Board President Jeff Barone.

"We wish him the best in Washington," Barone said.

Also recognized for their great seasons were the Qui Bowl Team, swim team, boys basketball team, and girls bowling team. See the April 4 edition of the Town Crier for details on these teams.

In other business at the board meeting, approval was given to hire Murphy Contracting to renovate the Central offices at Boardman Center Intermediate School to allow for new classrooms for the 2019-20 school year. The bid came in at $227,850 and will include vinyl asbestos tile and adhesive removal. Murphy was the lowest of four bids for the project.

"That will allow us to move the fourth grade to BCIS this fall," said Jack Zoloco, director of operations.

In other business:

The board accepted donations of $1,650 from Robert Senn Studios Inc. for 2018-19 underclass photos, and a cannon film camera and lenses from Charles Grameck for use in the darkroom photo class.

Approval was given for the BHS Qui Bowl Team to travel to the state tournament in Delaware, Ohio on April 12-13, and to the National tournament in Atlanta, Georgia on May 24-26.
