S.W.A.T. Members at Annual Region Conference

Representing Marathon Middle/High SWAT club at the conference were four current members:  Rachel Philcox, Alyssa Turner, Bailey Sullivan and Mackenzie Helms.  The girls hosted a round-table discussion on E-Cigs (electronic cigarettes), presenting youth from other counties in Region 4 information on the dangers, myths and rising use of this latest Big Tobacco product marketed towards our youth.

Marathon Dolphins Learn Mental Skills Training
The Marathon High School football team surrounds Mitch Lyons, second row center, of Newton, Massachusetts. Lyons came to Marathon High recently to conduct four days of mental skills training with the team. The training, based on a Massachusetts-based program founded by Lyons, teaches the social and emotional skills to handle challenges effectively, establish positive relationships, and make responsible decisions in both sports and everyday life. 
 
Lyons was pleased with the response from the Marathon team. "They are positive, caring young men and outstanding athletes," he stated. "This week they learned that what they are thinking about determines how they play and that creating a positive environment for themselves goes a long way in improving their performance."

Community service is defined as volunteer hours donated to a selected organization that is non-profit in nature. Students give back to the community by sharing their talents, time and resources. Moreover, completion of minimum numbers of service hours is one requirement of the Florida Bright Futures Scholarship Program as well as of other scholarships.
