Around Town Written by William Lewis
Mulligan, founder and CEO of GiveGab, a website that helps individuals find opportunities to volunteer in activities that interest them, spoke on the importance of hard work, cooperation, and determination in achieving success. Attending students were energized by Mulligan’s talk.
A number of students asked the speaker for advice on their own future entrepreneurial pursuits, and discussion of local opportunities to volunteer continued long after the presentation had concluded.
Of the approximately one hundred students invited to the event, about half attended. Organizers say they hope that these numbers will continue to grow as the honor roll recognition evening and other, similar events continue to encourage scholarship in the student body.

Pet of the Week
Hi, I'm Peanut - one handsome guy! I arrived all the way from Alabama with hopes of finding my perfect Ithaca adventure buddy. At only three years old, I have a great demeanor and EVERYONE falls in love with me! I love laps, cuddles, playing outside, and learning new tricks. I'm quite calm and would be fine with school-aged children. An obedience class would be so much fun, and I’m sure we could be the stars together! I would be happiest as the only dog in your home, but thankfully I have so much personality you won’t need anyone else. I'm neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and can't wait to find my forever person. Will it be you?
