LAKE WALES – Hundreds of Lake Wales area public school employees ended their week with a back-to-school pep rally Friday morning (Aug. 17) sponsored by the Lake Wales Area Chamber of Commerce. The annual event at First Baptist Church featured school cheers, door prizes, and a spirited beanbag competition among the principals.
