Basketball team in Repair Affair
The Midway College basketball team participated in the Woodford County Repair Affair on Sept. 10 doing yard work, maintenance and painting for Midway artist Melanie Sunbeam Smith. Head coach Karley Mohler said, "This is the second year we have been able to help Miss Melanie and what a pleasure it is to be a part of this community. Miss Melanie inspires all of us year after year to work a little harder to overcome our adversities. Thank you to the Woodford County Rotary Club and Midway College for allowing us the opportunity to be involved in such a wonderful community activity."
