Entertainers Yeagley, Tate, and Marshall discuss their concert

By Erin Wallace

David Yeagley, Jerod Tate, and Richard Marshall entertained many PHS students Sept. 16.

Putting on a concert for choir and band students, they told stories, played instruments, and shared personal experiences.

This was the group's first time working together, and they achieved a huge response from students that attended the performance.

"We just wanted to contribute what we could to the students here," explains Tate.

"The purpose of this concert is to inspire the students," says Marshall, "Hopefully students will get a different perspective out of all of this."

Key Club Corner

By Marlo Manicke, Key Club President

Key Club is off to a good start this year. Our first meeting was Oct. 13. There were about 25 people there, but we would like to see 25 more. At the meeting we discussed buying T-shirts for the Key Club so that when we go into the community people know who we are. We also discussed babysitting elementry students on early out days as there is a strong need in the community for such a service.

The next Key Club meeting is Monday, Oct. 25 at 6:30 in the Spanish Mod. At the meeting we will be bagging candy for the Halloween activities taking place around the town. Anyone is welcome to come to Key Club. Not only is it fun, but service in Key Club looks very good on an employment or school application. I hope to see many new faces on the Oct. 25 at 6:30.

Students to take a plunge before prom

Prom is a little more exciting for a group of 10 seniors this year. Before going to prom and dressing up, they will be having the wind blowing through their hair as they plummet 13,000 feet through the air, with only a thin sheet of nylon death

FHS students break the mold, teach Elrod students pottery

Like the pottery they created, second graders and high schoolers created new forms of friendship and understanding in the classroom of art teacher Linda Burgard on April 9.

Burgard's ceramic and sculpture classes gave Dee Manning's second graders from Elrod School a crash course in clay.

"There is no better way to learn something than to teach it," said Burgard.
