​On our cover are Wellington twins Reid and Ryan Snider, who recently graduated from Palm Beach Central High School. They have the unique distinction of both getting highly coveted appointments to the ultra-selective national service academies. Reid is heading to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, while Ryan is off to the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. In this issue, we also chat with Wellington High School’s Emilia McGovern and Johnathon Bucknor, who both won prestigious Pathfinder Scholarship Awards.
     Next, we take a look at the Equestrian Program at the Palm Beach campus of American Heritage Schools, which provides a unique educational experience geared to the needs of young equestrians. Meanwhile, the Wellington Community Foundation recently honored the three winners of this year’s Arle & Ken Adams Scholarship.
     In this month’s Wellington Today feature, Village Manager Jim Barnes unveils a new partnership with Freebee, an upgrade to Wellington’s senior transportation program. Our Wellington History series continues by recalling the contributions of Father John Mangrum, a spiritual leader, early elected official, devoted community builder and beloved newspaper columnist who was instrumental in the early years of Wellington. Finally, Wellington Table visits Olive U Mediterranean Grill, which takes fast casual Mediterranean dining to a whole new level, featuring a menu of fresh ingredients to make personalized bowls for lunch or dinner.
     We hope your summer is off to a great start, and we will be back next month with our annual health and medical issue.
