On Tuesday, February 13, 2018, Danville High School will honor their three senior Blue Devil basketball players, Skyler Durbin, Tyler Mickley, and Trey Fritz, during their senior night festivities. They will also be honoring senior cheerleaders Rachel Naber and Kyra Lepley, as well as senior wrestler Brice Berger. On this night, the proceeds from the sale of 50/50 tickets will go to the fund for fallen Westerville police officer Eric Joering’s children. His three school age children attend Centerburg schools.
It has been almost exactly two years since the Centerburg community showed their support for Danville when they lost our own Officer Cottrell. Any and all support for this cause will be greatly appreciated. As competitors, the communities of Knox County may meet as rivals in academic and athletic contests, but as members of the same county-wide community and traditions, those same competitors will continue to show their mutual support, respect, and caring when any of our communities are hurting.
