PHS Robotics Team recognized

Members of the 2010-11 PHS Robotics Club were honored Tuesday evening.

While Plainfield High School's Cardinals boys basketball team has garnered much attention for its Region 3 state title (the first in 27 years), I was pleased to find the District's Robotics Club team also being honored at this past Tuesday night's Board of Ed meeting.

Club members were invited to the front where they received individual certificates and shook the hands of Acting Superintendent of Schools Anna Belin-Pyles and Board of Ed members while basking in a hearty round of applause from the audience.

The club, which has participated in the annual high school robotics competition since 1997, has 43 members enrolled this year, including students from the Union County Magnet School and Union County Vo-Tech, according to faculty advisor Deborah Johnson.
