During Tuesday evening’s Plymouth School Board meeting an educational tour of Europe for Summer 2017 was proposed. Students would have an opportunity to spend 2 weeks overseas seeing sights while simultaneously learning about Europe’s rich history. A representative from Education First Tours discussed their policy that for every six students who enroll EF Tours pays the way of one chaperon. In order to embark on a tour with only people from Plymouth approximately 40 individuals would need to sign up. Since the trip wouldn’t take place for two more summers, the board members unanimously decided to table the item until their July 7 meeting.

MAX 98.3 FM News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
