Broadcaster Press 9 September 25, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com SEPTEMBER 2018 T BY MADDI KALLSEN VERMILLION.K12.SD.US VERMILLION HIGH SCHOOL’S STUDENT NEWSPAPER VHS Drama Scotland Bound he Vermillion High School (VHS) Drama Program was selected to perform in Scotland at one of the biggest theatre festivals in the entire world. According to The Scotsman, ScotlandÕs national newspaper, every year over two million tickets are sold. There are hundreds of different performances, consisting of plays, various forms of street performances, and live music. Mary Begley, the director of the theatre department at VHS, is thrilled to be nominated. The American High School Theatre Festival selects different schools around America to partici- pate in the festival each year. In order to be considered, schools must first be nominated by college theatre professors. Following their nomination, theatre programs are awarded a performance slot based on the schoolÕs past productions, awards received by the school, and theatre curriculum. The trip goes from July 26th to August 9th, 2019. The Drama Boosters club hopes to decrease the price for each student by fundraising and charitable donations. The Drama Boosters, along with many volunteers have raised over $10,000, so far. For example, ÁHOLA, VHS! Drama Boosters sold magic wands at the last spring play, Cinderella, and raised over $700. The VHS booth at the South Dakota Shakespeare Festival, fairytale plays performed in Prentis Park and at the library during the summer, and community donations also helped raise money. There are still many fundraisers lined up to raise more money for the students planning to go. So far, all of the fundraisers have been major successes. Community donations help considerably. There are various ways to donate. Around town there are donation containers in local businesses. Donations are also accepted by the Vermillion Public Schools Foundation, P.O. Box 569, Vermillion South Dakota, 57069; please make donations payable to VHS drama account. There is also a Facebook Fundraiser called ÒVHS Drama StudentsÕ 2019 Performance Trip To Scotland.” For further questions, contact Mary Begley at Vermillion High School, 605-6777033. There are very big plans in the making for our drama club and this trip; the whole school is excited for this opportunity. BACK TO SCHOOL BY DAMON R. ALVEY, SUPERINTENDENT BY MASON COURNOYER V ermillion High School welcomes a new Spanish Language teacher for the 20182019 school year. Her name is Ms. Elizabeth Bruemmer. The Jefferson, Missouri native has been teaching for 3 years. Ms. Bruemmer graduated from Maryville University; she started out teaching in Tampa, FL. Ms. Bruemmer says her drive for teaching Spanish is her admiration for the language and desire to share the knowledge she was once taught. Her favorite thing about the subject she teaches is the ability to travel with it. SheÕs looking forward to traveling to Spain. She also coaches volleyball for the Lady Tanagers. If she wasnÕt teaching, sheÕd be a news anchor telling the locals their stories. Ms. Bruemmer likes to listen to Alternative Rock and enjoys exercising and traveling. Her favorite teacher so far is Mrs. Dibley. For our off-the-wall question, I asked Ms. Bruemmer if she had $1,000,000 would she invest, save, or spendÉshe said she would invest. HALL POLLS W hat an exciting time of year to see students returning to school and our staff returning to work. We are fortunate here in Vermillion to have great students and faculty working toward the same end result; a superior education. Like most things in life you only get what you give so that is a message I would like to send to our students, our staff and our community as we start the 2018-19 school year. Here are three things to consider. 1. Everything is an opportunity. Each experience we have leads us in learning. Perhaps the lessons are difficult at times, but we should be learning from every experience. We choose the response, so I choose to learn and to get better. 2. Remember your blessings. We experience countless blessings each day, from time with our friends and family, to WORDSEARCH BY KALIE PUCKETT ASK ANONYMOUS BY LAUREN HANSEN Pumpkin Spice!?! good health, to the opportunity to live in a free nation. It is important to remember those blessings when life hands us a challenge, then use those blessings to get through the tough times. 3. Live a life of significance. Treat others the way you want to be treated, go out of your way to help someone in need, be grateful. What can you do to make someone elseÕs day better? Be the kind of person who lives with passion and leaves others better for having spent time with you. If you consider these three items, not only will your days be better, but so will everyone around you. Take the time to go the extra mile and you will find the rewards so much greater than the expense. I wish all of you a great 2018-19 school year. Make it a great day!
