Sara Knisley
Congratulations to sophomore Sara Knisley on her successful
 audition and acceptance into the 2019 Macy's Great American
Marching Band! Sara will represent the State of Ohio in the 93rd
annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York and perform
alongside some of the finest high school musicians from across
the nation.  Sara will spend a week rehearsing with the band and
Macy's staff and do plenty of sightseeing in Manhattan.  Make
sure to tune in NBC and catch her marching through Herald
Square on Thanksgiving morning.  Congratulations Sara!

Technology Interns

This year the IT Department has
expanded the internship program
to include three students at varying
times of the day.  Evan Brooks (far left)
is a Senior and considered the lead
intern. Evan worked with IT during
the summer helping with the
1:1 Chromebook roll out.  Kayla
Freeman (center) and Dylan Fisher,
both Juniors, joined the team at the
start of the school year.  
Interns repair Chromebooks, replace screens, batteries, keyboards and
perform system restorations.  Evan has worked with the principals to
reconfigure the user side of the CCTV system for easier access.  
All three use a training system called Test Out.  At the completion of
the internship program, they should be able to obtain an entry level
IT certification.  Halfway through the year, we have come to rely on the
interns and they have proven themselves to be responsible and very helpful.
