Nathan Bruck Wins at Robotics Competition
Nathan Bruck, sophomore at Allegany High School, is a member of the school’s robotics team and was recently honored with the FIRST (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Dean’s List Award. The award, named after FIRST’s founder, Dean Kamen, is the highest honor an individual on a robotics team can earn and is given to a robotics team member that exemplifies great leadership for the team and its community. Nathan is one of only two students in the state of Maryland to have received this award.
FIRST is a non-profit charity that designs accessible, innovative programs that motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math while building self-confidence, knowledge and life skills. FIRST organizes robotics tournaments around the world, and states throughout the U.S. hold qualifying tournaments to see which teams will have the opportunity to ultimately advance to the world championship.
During one such qualifying tournament held at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD, on January 10th, Nathan was selected to represent Maryland. He will now participate in the world championship tournament April 22-25, 2015, in St. Louis, MO.

Preparing all students for tomorrow's challenges - life, college, career
Allegany High School
Education must be a cooperative effort involving the student, the teacher, the home, the school, and the community. Recognizing that the student must be the focal point of our education program, we must instill a desire for learning and create a learning environment in which the student can learn and develop according to ability and interest. The curriculum must emphasize life skills, preparation for continuing education, and preparation for employment to enable our students to become responsible citizens and enjoy a productive life. The school must ensure an atmosphere that will promote learning through the cooperative effort of staff, students, family, and community working together.
Preparing all students for tomorrow’s challenges – life, college, and career
History of Allegany
Allegany High School was initially a secondary education school held on Maryland Avenue. The school had many different locations including the building on Greene Street, which was used as a combined middle/high school until the spring of 1926. At that time, the building now known as Allegany High School had been completed and was prepared to accept Greene Street’s high school students. Middle school students remained on Greene Street until the school later burned down in 1932. “Camp Hill,” the site of the present day Allegany, was a federal army camp during the Civil War.
The “Camper” mascot is a source of much confusion. Many think the name refers to Campobello, a Shawnee Indian Tribe camp, from which the federal army took their name during the Civil War. This, however, is a misconception. The most widely accepted theory is that Civil War General Lewis Wallace and his men began calling the site that during their time here. The word Campobello in fact does not appear in any Native American language and is derived from Latin, meaning “camp of war”.
Allegany High School, with an enrollment of approximately 800 students, focuses on student achievement and success in all areas of education through a combined effort of students, faculty, staff, home, and community. The class of 2008 marked an important milestone for Allegany: the students were the 120th class to graduate from the long-standing institution.
REMINDER TO STUDENTS
School administrators have the ultimate responsibility for administering student discipline. Depending on the seriousness of the violation, administrators have the authority to determine the range of severity of the disciplinary action. At the request of a principal, the superintendent or his designee may suspend a student for more than 10 schools days, or expel the student. If a student is removed from the regular education program that he/she attends at school through an expulsion or suspension from school, the student is no permitted on school property and may not attend or participate in school-sponsored activities. We are reminding students that if expulsion or alternative placement is determined for a student due to disciplinary reasons, the student jeopardizes his/her opportunity and the availability to continue in classes such as Honors, AP, or duel enrollment courses that may not be available in alternative programs, as well as co-curricular activities and school events. We encourage all students to respect self and others and to exhibit responsibility.
