GHS Musicians Perform at Versailles High High School For the Musical "Peter Pan"

On April 24, 25, and 26, several GHS musicians and directors, played in the pit orchestra for Versailles High School's musical "Peter Pan". Our musicians joined other adult musicians and two VHS students to comprise an orchestra of eighteen members strong (which is a rather large pit orchestra). The group, along with the VHS cast, performed for four sold out shows, receiving many accolades from those in attendance and on stage. The total production of Peter Pan included 52 student actor/singers in addition to the pit. Over 100 individuals took part in making this production a success, which included Peter Pan and the Darling children flying! Our GHS student musicians were excited to take part in this unique and exciting experience and really enjoyed the bond created with the VHS students. The musical director was Robin Brown, who has taught fourth grade in Versailles for 35 successful years. Mr. McKibben was thrilled at how outstanding our GHS musicians and the entire orchestra played and loved directing such a well supported and outstanding production!

Members of the Peter Pan Orchestra from GHS were: Row 1: Sarah Herzog (violin) Alex Lance (trumpet); Row 2: Francesca Masso-Rivetti (violin), Cylas Conway(violin), Jeff Wirrig (percussion), Jennifer Murray (cello); Row 3: Mr. Moore (trumpet), Brett Clark (Instrumental Music Booster Treasurer/Bass), and Mr. McKibben (Music Director for the Show).

President Dani Marker expresses “opportunities are endless in Medical Tech Prep!” Four weeks out of our senior year, every student has the chance to job shadow in almost every desired career. Our instructor, Emily Powers, has done her absolute best to have us experience four different areas whether they are in the medical field or not. One could find us exploring any career from the hospital setting, to the police station, to a veterinarian’s office. This helps us figure out which occupations we may want to pursue or maybe even a job that do not suit us as well as another could. These rotations are very significant to us as individuals, especially when we all came into this program with little idea of what we wanted to do after graduation. Vice president, Shelby Cassity states, “coming into Med Tech my junior year I was never one to like the blood and guts, now that I have gone through rotations I have realized that being a critical care nurse is my calling”. Powers has created professional relationships with area healthcare workers to provide them with quality opportunities.  Powers adds, “The purpose of the rotations is for students to explore careers they are interested in, hopefully these experiences lead them to make a decision about their future”.  Now, after our exposure, we are all leaving with more experience, confidence, and a plan to start the next chapter of our lives.

FFA Members Participate in Public Speaking

Thomas Shaw , Victoria Nadar, Jack Garland and Hannah Grisez  represented Greenville FFA in the Public Speaking Contests that was held on January 30th, 2014.  They each spoke at the District 5 Sub-district Public Speaking Contest held recently at Tri-Village High School.  Garland and Grisez participated in the Creed Contest while  Shaw participated in the Extemporaneous Speaking Contest and Nadar participated in the beginning prepared speaking contest.

The Extemporaneous Speech Contest consists of researching and writing a 5 to 7 minute speech on an agricultural topic in 30 minutes. The contest is designed to stimulate the interest of the FFA member in agriculture and leadership by giving them an opportunity to speak before an audience. Shaw placed 2nd in this sub district contest and went on to the district 5 finals where he placed 1st in the district. He then progressed to the state semifinals where participated in the final 4 where he then  placed 3rd in the State of Ohio. 

The Creed Contest consists of a student memorizing the five paragraphs of the FFA Creed and presenting it to a panel of judges.  This contest is designed to develop leadership and the ability to appear before a group by freshmen students as they become members of the FFA.  He then answers three minutes worth of questions over his presentation.  They are evaluated on his presentation, memorization, and response to the questions. Jack Garland received a gold rating and was 4th in the sub district contest. Hannah Grisez placed 1st in the sub district and placed 2nd in the district where she then went on to the state semifinals placing her 8th in her division.

Beginning prepared speaking is a contest made for members to practice their memorization skills. Members write their own speech on an agricultural topic and then present in to a panel of judges where they are then quizzed and questioned over their knowledge of the topic. Victoria Nadar placed 1st in the sub district contest which progressed her into the district contest where she then received 3rd place.

Congratulations to all members involved in the public speaking contest!
