Trick or Treat Around the Track
On October 27th, Westville High School’s Athletic Council put on their third annual Trick or Treat Around the Track. The evening was packed with fun from beginning to end. Walking onto the track, students, parents, and community members were greeted by the many Athletic Council members dressed up in their weird and wacky costumes. Some of the school’s faculty were there dressed up in their Halloween best as well. The Westville Fire Department even came to support and help out throughout the night.

Steiner, a PNW grad herself, has a degree in Human Resource Management and a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both from the institution for which she works. She uses these degrees in order help the students and alumni of PNW determine their career plans.

The arts are a big thing here at Marquette.

Stories have their own special ability to build shared meaning, values, and direction for our families. Often, we don't realize how these stories influence our behavior and shape the future; but stories about our national, cultural, or family history have shaped much of how we’ve come to view ourselves.
