The weather held for all prom attendees this weekend. I think it’s safe to say that everyone had an excellent time in their suave hats, tails, and bow ties, or elegant, beautiful gowns in the ballrooms of the historic Hotel Colorado. Thank you to the junior class for putting on such a beautiful celebration.
On Sunday, Monday, and today, members of FBLA competed in the state competition. The members are well prepared and have worked hard. Also today after school, the girls’ soccer team, baseball, and tennis teams all have home games. Come and support our athletes.
This Friday and Saturday is the opening of the spring play, “Father of the Bride.” It begins at 7 p.m. in the GSHS auditorium. The many students starring in the show are excited to show off their acting talents in a wonderful production.
Our first Student of the Week is freshman Katie Dietrich. Katie was nominated by Mrs. Loman, a science teacher at GSHS. Katie transferred to Glenwood this semester and has transitioned into the school by being a hard worker in classes such as Mrs. Loman’s physical science class, involved in soccer, and “an overall nice student.”
Katie and her family have a passion for horses. Katie’s sister rides competitively, and the family’s involvement and interest in horses brings them together.
Katie likes GSHS a lot, but misses her old friends. She has made new ones though, and has learned to adapt to a new school, teachers, environment, and students.
Right now, Katie is a member of Glenwood’s JV soccer team. Soccer is one of her favorite pastimes, along with spending time with her friends, and making the most of the winter season snowboarding.
Excited to finish her first year of school, Katie looks forward to summer.
Her favorite quote is: “Don’t put someone’s name in a heart, put it in a circle because hearts break, but circles go on forever.” Congratulations, Katie.
The next Student of the Week is junior Beau Harris. Beau was recommended by Lou Eller, the head of his volunteer fire squadron. Beau is a valuable help at the fire station and does an excellent job in all of his duties. Beau is a volunteer for the Carbondale and Rural Fire Protection District. He is very excited for his first season fire fighting.
Beau has lived in Glenwood his entire life. He has an older sister attending Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn.
In the fall, Beau was a member of the football team and now is on the new club lacrosse team. He also is a member of NHS and DECA. His favorite high school memory is of attending the state DECA competition at the Broadmoor Hotel.
When Beau has time off from these activities, he enjoys paintballing, skiing, kayaking, dirt biking, four-wheeling, and “chillin’ with my homedogs.” He likes to swing dance and has won two swing dance competitions, and enjoys listening to the 15th Avenue All Stars.
After high school, Beau plans on either being in college or the cockpit of an F-15. Good luck, Beau.
