Six seniors from five high schools in Tioga and Potter counties were awarded the Upper Pine Creek Trout Tournament Scholarship for Wildlife, Ecology and the Environment on Sunday, May 16 during the annual tournament.

Presenting the $500 scholarships to the students were Pennsylvania Grand Canyon Snowmobile Club President Jim Baney and Cheryl Gross, a member of the club's board of directors, along with Seneca Resources Company, LLC representatives Jim Westbrook, district production foreman, and Wayne Fletcher, environmental health and safety representative. The event took place at the snowmobile clubhouse at 4814 Route 6, 12 miles west of Wellsboro.

“With Seneca Resources partnering with us this year, we were able to award six $500 scholarships,” said Baney. Seneca Resources is the exploration and production segment of National Fuel Gas Company.
The snowmobile club has been presenting scholarships to graduating high school seniors every May since the tournament began. The only exception was in 2020 when it was cancelled due to the pandemic. The club awarded two $100 scholarships each year from 1991 to 2007; three $300 scholarships from 2008 to 2018; and three $500 scholarships in 2019. 

Each student completed an application for the 2021 scholarship that included writing short essays. The first was on what they see as major wildlife, ecological, and/or environmental issues in their areas. The second was how their chosen career field would allow them to have a positive influence on these issues. “Each student’s answers were very thoughtful and reflected well on them, their education and families,” Baney said.

Curtis Craig, a senior at North Penn-Mansfield High School, is the son of Scott and Betsy Craig of Covington Township. This fall, he will attend Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio and major in civil engineering. 

Hope Sampson of Charleston Township, a senior at Wellsboro Area High School, is the daughter of Mary Beth Lasko of Middlebury Township and Matt Sampson of Charleston Township. This fall, she plans to attend Montana University in Missoula and major in environmental science and sustainability. Sampson also plans to earn a master's degree and work in the Peace Corps.

Carter Anderson of Allegany Township, a senior at Northern Potter High School in Ulysses, is the son of Jon and Keri Anderson, both of Coudersport. In the fall of 2022, Carter plans to attend Paul Smith’s College in Paul Smiths, New York and major in forestry. He is taking a year off before going to college to work as a forestry consultant either with the state of Pennsylvania or with a private company. "The scholarship and working for a year will help me financially so I can graduate with less debt," he said.

Alexis Banik, a senior at Wellsboro Area High School, is the daughter of Lisa and Stephen Banik of Charleston Township. This fall, she will attend Penn State University in State College, and major in veterinary and biomedical sciences, a four-year program. She then plans to continue her studies for four more years to become a veterinarian.

Stevia Swimley, a senior at Cowanesque Valley High School, is the daughter of Erin and Tom Swimley of Knoxville. This fall, she plans to attend Penn State Harrisburg and major in political science. She wants to do something in government such as public administration or policy-making. "I don't have enough money to pay for my first semester in college so I am looking for a second job and applying for a ton of scholarships," Swimley said.

Ryann Upham of Jackson Township, a senior at North Penn-Liberty High School, is the daughter of Angela Upham of Liberty Township and Brett Upham of Jackson Township. This fall, she plans to attend Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia and take undecided business, an exploratory course, to help her decide what aspect of business she wants to pursue.

All six students said this scholarship would help them afford to go to college and to graduate by assisting with tuition or book costs.

UPMC Senior Community Receives CMS Five-Star Rating

WELLSBORO, Pa., May xx, 2021 – The Green Home, part of UPMC Senior Communities, has earned a five-star rating from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). According to CMS’s website, “Nursing homes with five stars are considered to have much above average quality.”

“This recognition means a lot to us and to the community we serve,” said Bobbie Woolcock, senior director of operations, UPMC Senior Communities in North Central Pa. “Our residents are part of an especially vulnerable population. Receiving this kind of recognition helps validate that we have gone above and beyond for their care. We will continue our effort to exceed these standards.”

The categories that make up the overall five-star rating include health inspection, quality measures, staffing, and RN staffing. The CMS star rating system was launched in 2016 and the current rating reflects data from October 2020 to December 2020.

The Green Home works collaboratively with UPMC Wellsboro, another UPMC critical access hospital that also recently earned a five-star rating from The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. This speaks volumes about the overall quality of services available to the community of Wellsboro.

The Green Home, located at 37 Central Ave., Wellsboro, provides professional, compassionate care to residents and their families. To learn more about The Green Home’s amenities and services, go to

CRCF to hold webinar “Agency Endowments 101” June 11

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation will lead the next installment of its Nonprofit Link and Learn Seminar Series on June 11, with “Agency Endowments 101,” a session led by CRCF Executive Director Karen Niemic Buchheit and Skip Wilday, CRCF board president and retired executive director of Morgan Stanley. 

This session will be tailored to nonprofit board members or staff members who care about the future of their organizations and their long-term stability. Attendees will learn how an endowment fund can help provide for their nonprofit’s future and leave a lasting legacy. This webinar will cover how to establish, manage and grow an endowment. 

Buchheit will draw from her 25+ years of experience in nonprofit management in the session. Buchheit has been the executive director of CRCF, which now manages over $27 million in assets, including $4 million in agency endowment funds, since 2010. 

In addition to being the board president of CRCF, Wilday is also the vice chair of the Gow School board of trustees. Wilday will share his experience in leading the boarding school for students with language-based learning disabilities to establish an agency fund of its own. Wilday is also the vice chair of the Olean Food Pantry and serves on the association board for the YMCA of the Twin Tiers, both of which have an agency endowment at CRCF. He is also a past president of Holimont. 

The webinar will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Registration for the webinar is open at

The Nonprofit Link and Learn Series emerged after the cancellation of Nonprofit Networking Day as a way to continue CRCF’s dedication to nonprofit education and capacity building and has since provided four webinar opportunities for nonprofit professionals and board members. 

“In my tenure at CRCF we have helped many nonprofits plan for long-term sustainability through an agency endowment,” said Buchheit. “We believe this webinar will provide more insight on the benefits of an agency endowment for our community nonprofits coupled with tips on how to establish and/or build their endowments.” 

The Nonprofit Link and Learn series for 2021 will conclude with the session, “Practices for Cattaraugus Gives Success: From your peers,” on September 25. Kirk Windus, Cattaraugus Gives coordinator and CRCF communications and fund development manager will moderate a panel of representatives from past Cattaraugus Gives participants who have found success in the annual giving day. 

Further details on upcoming sessions and registration details will be announced at a later date.  

The Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation is the area’s supportive, responsive and trusted community foundation. Established in 1994, CRCF is growing good by connecting donors to the causes they care about most in the region. Grants from the foundation support many areas, including education, scholarships, health care, the arts, community development, human service, and youth development.
