This year, being a Drama kid and Drama club President, I was so excited when they announced the theme was “Old Hollywood”. Soon it went around campus that all the chaperones were going to be dressed up as “Old Hollywood” actors and actresses. I knew that Prom would be a night to remember. My friends and I planned the whole night, getting ready, dinner, and who was going to drive. We were so excited.

My time in Sports Medicine at Reedley High School can only be described as a hands on, applicable class that is as educational as it is fun. The teacher, Mr. Kirby Kauk, does an excellent job of keeping the class entertaining with his endless number of stories and outrageously corny jokes that somehow amazingly help us study for tests.

Joyce Funda a junior at RHS and the smartest person I know. She said in our interview that if she could change her past she would have joined more clubs and sports earlier in high school. I laughed because I think she is involved with enough already! But that is Joyce for you, she never gives up, she is constantly involved and nothing is too big or too hard for her. She is an academic inspiration and I can’t wait to see what she does later in life.

Ok, I know, I know, when I started writing about sports for Kings River Life, I said I was going to accentuate the positive. But I have something that’s been bugging me for a long time, and it’s time to get it off my chest.

The classic musical Annie hits the stage at Reedley High School this Friday, March 25 at 7:30 p.m. This is a great show to take the entire family too!

With a cast of approximately 19 orphans (played by Kings Canyon Unified School District elementary/middle school students), 19 high schoolers and 12 adults, this show gave director Mark Norwood a chance to use kids of all ages which was his goal.

Whether they fully realize it yet or not remains to be seen, but Kingsburg High School (KHS) students have just experienced a dream come true. On March 4, 2011, myself and fifty-eight others, including forty-six members of the KHS Wind Ensemble, boarded a school bus and traveled to San Francisco International Airport. Our destination was New York City and the world-renowned Carnegie Hall.

If you were to walk up to any one of my friends or classmates at Reedley High School and asked them to describe me they would probably say that I’m a nerd. As disturbing as that answer might first appear to be, it’s quite accurate! I am a NERD!!!

Before anyone thinks for a moment that I might be the only published writer in Kingsburg, please allow me to introduce another. His name is Tom Gramza and he is an elementary school teacher and author of the fantasy novel, Tolund’s Waking.

I remember clearly the first time I saw Todd Croissant on a basketball court. It was probably 1991 or 1992 during warm-ups for a game at the Immanuel High School Gym. Todd was a freshman, playing on the varsity—a very rare thing then, as it is now. My first impression was, “this guy belongs on a basketball court.”
