8 Broadcaster Press January 28, 2020 www.broadcasteronline.com January 2020 Vermillion High School’s Student Newspaper vermillion.k12.sd.us Rock Me Amadeus! BY LIVI REGNERUS Building an Education BY LILLY MOCKLER Construction is on its way for the fifth housing project in the Residential Construction class at Vermillion High School! In this class, the students build houses to be placed around town. These houses usually take a full year to complete, but the time investment is made up for in lessons learned on community involvement and the skilled trade of carpentry. The current house project has seen the floor completed and the walls are starting to go up. Mr. Mark Pier is the teacher overseeing this whole process. He has been teaching at VHS for 26 years. When asked what his favorite part of teaching this class, Pier responded: “I like to get out and get active, I don’t like to stand behind a podium and talk and preach to everybody, I like to get out and do stuff.” He “...I like to get expressed that he enjoys working with out and get all of the students. active” His least favorite part about building these houses is “Probably when things go wrong and we have to do them over, and when we have to rebuild what we already built.” Mr. Pier enjoys both building these houses and giving this opportunity to students! One of those students, Haylee Radigan, VHS senior, recanted, “I would not feel comfortable building a house for anyone to live in if I wasn’t comfortable living in it myself.” Photo By Sophomore, Lilly Mockler The Vermillion High School one- act theatre group is embarking on their own version of the play Amadeus.The one-act director, Mary Begley states that, “It is a funny and tragic story about the life and death of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.” The one-act will be performed publicly on January 24 at the Vermillion High School Thomas H. Craig Center for the Performing Arts and Regionals will take place in Dakota Valley on January 28. Then, on February 4 the Drama Department will provide the students of VHS with a performance during the school day. The leading actors are Jack Fuller playing Mozart and Ian Kocher playing Antonio Salieri. Last year VHS received a Superior play award at the State festival. “It is fun to take the play to the Region contest and see the other schools productions. The shorter play allows me to spend more time on each moment in the play and focus on acting more than the technical aspects like set and lights,” explained Begley. She has been directing one-act plays here at VHS since 2000. Amadeus is sure to highlight the talent of Vermillion High School’s student body!
