Solon trapshooting team aiming for the top

SOLON– It’s unusual for Solon to be in the role of the underdog.
But that sums up the year for the Solon High School Trapshooting Team.
In just two short years, the team has evolved from piggybacking with Iowa City West to emerging as a force to be reckoned with, all the while limited by a lack of available facilities and the hectic schedules of its team members.
After a slow start at the beginning of the season, the Solon shooters improved every week. And when the State competition in Cedar Falls was held June 3, Solon was the fifth best team in Iowa.

Dollars for Scholars takes healthy stake in higher education

SOLON– W.B. Yeats said, “Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.”
With a scholarship program that grants funds to any applicant graduating from Solon High School, the Solon Dollars for Scholars organization has been helping to light such fires for more than 18 years.
Sometimes, a scholarship can be just the spark a student needs to take the next step toward continuing his or her education. Other times, the funding can mean the difference between affording that education and putting it off indefinitely.
