Forensics Class At Reedley High School

When you think of the word “forensics,” the first thing that pops into your head is CSI. In high schools, forensics is actually a speech and debate class. When some students don’t look at the course definition, they are often disappointed to find out that they won’t be solving crimes! Going into forensics, I knew that it had nothing to do with catching serial killers and saving the world. Having an overwhelming fear of public speaking, let alone one-on-one speaking, I knew it would be a struggle.

Immanuel Schools’ mission is to equip students to serve God and neighbor with mind, body and soul, based on a Christ-centered foundation.
This mission statement is apparent in every way students carry themselves; in Mr. Knaak’s Senior Bible classes, students have the opportunity to serve their neighbor and community by participating in service projects during class

There’s a special buzz around Immanuel campus, especially with regard to the basketball teams. With four talented transfers on the girls and seven on the boys, the games are producing a gargantuan amount of school pride. Between both teams beating Kingsburg and the girls leaving Minarets behind by over fifty points, the school is definitely rising up to the occasion, both teams wishing to obtain a Valley title.

At Immanuel High School in Reedley, “the play’s the thing,” as William Shakespeare said. Students are dedicated to making the drama and musical shows the best possible experience for families and the community. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat comes to the Immanuel stage and is a musical that will keep children engaged, but will also give new insight on the story of Joseph from the Bible.

The Reedley College football team is in serious trouble. I can’t think of any other way to say it. The Tigers (1-5) begin conference play this coming Saturday, and if last Saturday’s 28-0 loss to Diablo Valley College is any indication, it could be ugly.

To have a successful Athletic Department, any school–be it a high school, a junior college or a four year college–has to have a dedicated and hard working Athletic Director. Reedley College is blessed to have one of those people heading their athletic department–Javier Renteria. Javier’s “life journey,” and how he ended up as A.D. at Reedley College is really fascinating. He shared that story with me recently.

This year of Immanuel Football has kicked off to a great start. With the addition of some new faces, the Eagles squad is set to do better than ever. After the 2012 season finished the Eagles offense knew they would have to replace the star power that Sam Isaak brought to the running back position, while also filling some key spots on the line. Their entire offense needed to be shaped once again by the incoming talent the Eagles had coming into the year.
