Dancer to waltz into columnist’s slot this fall

Audrey Schaiberger

Editor’s note: Audrey Schaiberger only thought she was through with her “Demon Doings” column last week. Here’s one more from the graduating senior, for the road.

Dancers Dancing was a huge success this weekend and a wonderful last performance for the graduating seniors. Several dancers will still be around next year, including Cassidy Willey, which brings me to the introduction of next year’s columnist: Cassidy will be a junior next year, and the next columnist for “Demon Doings.”

Cassidy enjoys school, and has been on the Cross Country Team, Speech Team, in Drama, dance, Climate Committee, Key Club, Student Council, and Impact Club. She is very excited to begin writing the column next fall.

This summer, she will be traveling to Peru and then Mexico to build a house for a family and work in a boys orphanage.

Cassidy is in love with acting, and enjoys discussing current events and watching the news. She is sure to enjoy the year as much as I have writing about our excellent student body and events at our high school. Good luck and have fun, Cassidy!

Let me introduce you to the last students of the week, Sabra Morris and Tracy Hawkins.

Sabra has lived in Glenwood her entire life with her mother, Mandy. Together, they love watching TV, and in the summer, visiting their cabin every weekend. They also look forward to their annual family reunions.

Sabra was nominated by Mrs. Lamb, a computer tech and science teacher, for all of her hard work on creating a senior class movie. Sabra worked hours on the film, using hundreds of pictures of our graduating class, from their baby photos, amusing middle school pictures, to photos capturing the fun we had this year. Sabra has taken every computer class the school has to offer, and the film looked great!

Sabra fondly remembers playing club volleyball throughout high school, and has participated in FBLA. She stays busy holding part-time jobs for Wright Water and Waste Engineering Inc., and Rachesky Law Office.

Sabra loved all the friends she made during school, and seeing them throughout the day, eating lunch with them and talking in the halls. Her favorite quote is, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”

Tracy Hawkins was nominated by Mrs. Hardman of GSHS. Mrs. Hardman praised Tracy’s hard work in her black and white photography class. “She always puts in a lot of extra time in the darkroom to finish projects, always completes good work, and isn’t afraid to ask for help when she needs it.”

Tracy has lived in New Castle for eight years with her proud parents, Carol and William. Together, they love to go skiing. One of Tracy’s favorite pastimes is skiing, and she is on the Sunlight Ski Team in the winter.

Art is one of Tracy’s fortes and favorite classes. Some of her favorite memories are from her drawing and painting class that she took last year. This year, she loves her art portfolio, pottery, and print making classes.

In five years, Tracy expects to be in college. She would love to attend an art school, but is not yet sure what she would like to pursue. Good luck, Tracy, and congratulations!


Cassidy’s Random Disclosure: After almost a year of desperately trying to find a parking place among the three blocks of student cars on Pitkin Avenue, the sophomores can finally park in the parking lot! (For two weeks!)
