Students Summit Mt. Ellis
Mt. Ellis Academy students carried out the tradition of climbing Mt. Ellis, the mountain for which the academy was named. Many of this year's students climbed Mt. Ellis for the first time this year. Paul Curtis, the first boy up, made it in one hour, 11 minutes, and the first girl, Elizabeth Neuharth, followed 13 minutes later. Some years have recorded climbs by students in less than one hour.
