COMPREHENSIVE PLAN Ascend Lebo, Mt. Lebanon’s Comprehensive Plan, is nearing the end of its initial information-gathering phase. When finished, the plan will create a blueprint for Mt. Lebanon’s future. But there’s still lots of work to do. Beginning early next year, project will be moving out of the Explore phase into the Test phase, where we will be testing out some of the ideas we heard from the public in the initial information-gathering phase. Stay informed on the plan’s progress at AscendLebo.com, where all of the project information will be posted and updated.
THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY OF MT. LEBANON presented its annual History Makers Award to the athletic programs at Mt. Lebanon High School.
Beginning in 2016, the society’s board of trustees has recognized an individual or group that has made a significant contribution of service to the betterment of the community, and recognized them at its annual fall dinner.
From 2016 to 2019, the award was given to individuals. Because of the pandemic, the society did not give an award in 2020. Last year’s History Maker Award went to the doctors, nurses and other staff of St. Clair Hospital.
At this year’s presentation, society president Geoff Hurd announced the award:
“The school has produced Olympic champions and professional athletes, along with thousands of athletes who learned, grew and benefited from athletic competition.”
