There was an outstanding show of community this past Tuesday as students and parents from local elementary schools gathered at Elkins High School for the Mayor’s Johnny Keller Intra-City Track Meet. Midland Elementary School was awarded a $300 prize for having the most students participate in the meet. The funds will be used for physical education at the school.

Here are some shots from the afternoon that capture the joy of friendly competition and community building through athletics.
