FACTORYVILLE — As part of their senior project, Lackawanna Trail students Lauryn Maleski and Taylor Selwood held a balloon launch on Friday, May 15 at Lions Pride Stadium to bring awareness to mental health topics. They hoped to bring the students together to promote well-being, happiness and health.

The students of the junior class were instructed to write something on a piece of paper they wished to “let go” of and the papers were tied to balloon strings.
