HUGHESVILLE - It was a night of recognition at the East Lycoming School Board meeting Tuesday night.
Senior Jay Hiller will travel to San Antonio, Texas, next month as one of four national winners of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl video challenge.
Hiller was chosen to participate for his three-minute combination of past animation and live video project.
"I would like to personally congratulate Jay for his talent and what he brought to our school," said Ron A. Lorson, Hughesville High School principal.
While at the bowl game, Hiller will receive training on the video-audio equipment used at the school, NewTek, which sponsors the contest.
Before presenting his video to the school board, Hiller expressed excitement at the opportunity to broadcast the game.
"This is the future of the NFL," he said.
Hiller is the second Hughesville High student to win a chance to attend the game. Kate Anderson was part of the 2010 Army All-American Marching Band.
"I'm very proud of Jay to carry on that tradition," Lorson said.
Also recognized at the meeting was former board member Renee Laychur, who served 13 years.
"It takes a lot of effort to be a quality board member," superintendent Michael Pawlik, said about the time spent researching for the meetings. "Renee stepped up."
She was given a plaque and her nameplate.
