The Leonid sat down with seniors Bryce Knorr and Danny Parsley to talk about the art they are creating for the public. Bryce Knorr, single handedly composed a clothing line in which he sells apparel with his designs, locally and nationwide, he calls it ‘Cyprus.’
Danny Parsley, on the other hand, thought up rhymes and jotted down lines to create his very own mixtape referred to as ‘NSPG’.

Many young teens aspire to one day own their own company, some may dream of a clothing line and others a bakery. But how many actually make that dream happen? The challenges are daunting, the expenses and time needed tend to offput most people.
Some students have put their creative minds to the test and launched their own company.
Bryce Knorr is a senior who created the clothing line, Cyprus. “I came up with Cyprus by getting really involved into graphic design and drawing,” Knorr said, “I wanted to always wear exactly what I wanted to wear so it made sense for me to bring the two elements together.”
Bryce started Cyprus in 2013, and the brand has been growing since. Bryce now has his own site and has even worked with professionals in order to better the brand.
Chelsea White loves Justin Bieber. She is going to her second Bieber concert with her mother this May. She has a poster of him in her room and countless pictures of him on her iPad.
Music is one of her favorite things. She also loves seeing her teachers in school whether in her History of Rock and Roll class with Mr. Vanada or in algebra class. She also loves to text and write poetry.
She has an amazing relationship with her brother, Dustin, also known as D Dog to Chelsea. He always manages to make her smile.
“Chelsea’s one of a kind. She just lights up a room,” Rachael Patterson, one of Chelsea’s advisers who had been with her throughout her high school career, said. “Anyone who meets her instantly gets attached.”
The first thing most people notice about her is her brilliant smile, not her powerchair.

For clarification, there is a difference between orchestra and band. The string orchestra consists of four instruments: the violin, viola, cello, and bass; while the band uses other instruments.
However, for the holiday concert, the string orchestra and band team up to form a full orchestra, which has more than just strings.
Mrs. Ashley McDaniel, the orchestra teacher in the Red Lion school district, only joined Red Lion this year. After working at a private school in Maryland, she now leads the senior high and junior high orchestras, as well as teaching eighth grade music classes.
The purpose of the orchestra, McDaniel said, is “to enrich the students’ musical experiences, to have fun, and to express ourselves.”
After all, she pointed out, music is how we relieve stress, celebrate, and simply experience life.

As seniors are quickly approaching the final months of their high school career, many students are striving to make lasting memories with the friends they have made throughout their time in high school.
For the past four years, Executive Council has worked to raise as much money as possible to provide the class of 2016 with the prom of their dreams. Not only has all of the hard work of the Executive Council members and officers paid off, but the entire class has helped to raise money by selling Wolfgang candy and Sheetz books through fundraisers. The money raised from these efforts has helped to buy decorations for prom, and lowering the ticket price to $40 a person.
Out of the 362 students in the senior class, 243 purchased tickets to prom. 390 prom tickets were sold in total, raking in enough of a profit to pay off the $6,000 venue and catering.
With the cost of prom totalling over $6,000, the senior class has made it all possible. The profit made from prom tickets alone, has totalled nearly $16,000 dollars to pay for the venue, decorations, and DJ.
This money, along with profit from the Wolfgang fundraiser in early March, has also made it possible for every graduating senior and staff member to receive a gold football pin to wear in honor of Stone Hill and Nick Mankin, who would have been graduating with the class of 2016 in June.
Following the weeks of prom planning and anticipation, prom is fast approaching. Most students have waited all year to hear who has been voted to be on this year’s prom court, and the winners have been announced.
Prom court voting took place the week of March 14-18, and the top five males and females with the highest votes earned themselves a chance at being crowned king or queen.
The senior males with the most votes were Ian Adler, Brooks Argento, Dalton Grove, Alex Keough, and Joel Zamora. Seniors Tristan Schluderberg, Courtney Dimoff, Brooke Gladfelter, Emily Ayre, and Kelly Snyder stole the votes for the girls.
Senior Joel Zamora will be making his prom court debut alongside his close friend from church, Morgan Pierce. “I chose to invite her because she’s a sweet girl… She’s been my friend for awhile.”
As most people, Zamora never thought he would have won over the votes for prom court. “It was funny because, like, a week or two before, my friends were telling me how they were going to vote for me, and I started joking about how I’d be prom king, but I didn’t think it would actually happen (to be on court)… It felt nice.”
Tristan Schluderberg was also very appreciative, adding in that it was “a complete honor to be voted for by the senior class.”
“I did not expect to be on the prom court, so when I found out I felt very grateful,” Schluderberg said, “It was a surprise. There are so many other girls that are deserving of being on prom court that I never pictured myself being one of them.”
Seniors Nathan Law and Hannah Kirsch are planning on making their senior prom a special night to remember. “I’m looking forward to spending a special night with my girlfriend,” Law said, “It’s one of those nights you remember for the rest of your life, and I get to remember it with my best friend and girlfriend.”

We’ve all seen them. The kids with the giant head phones, cameras, and ear pieces running up and down the sidelines at a sporting event. It may seem odd to some, but without them, our school sporting events could not be displayed on the scoreboard or online.
These students make up our TV Production Team. To join the TV Production Team, you don’t need experience, you only need an interest in filming and sharing sports with the school.
As Mr. Keith Blackwell is fond of saying, “If you have an interest, we will teach you!”
You do not have to be a part of a Tech Ed or the TV production class to join. The students who are already involved think that it is an amazing and rewarding experience.
Senior Ryan Hatterer said, “I love being able to look back on The Cube, on the live streams, and know I helped make that what it is.”
Ryan has been part of the TV production team for three years and loves filming boy’s lacrosse, because you have to be one or two steps ahead of the ball at all times.
Finally, when asked what she would like to tell other students interested in joining, senior Jennifer Owrutsky said, “They definitely should! It is a lot of fun and there are a lot of opportunities. Everyone is super nice and provides a great atmosphere. It’s a great activity to be a part of!”
If you are interested in joining, please see Mr. Blackwell. Spring sports are going on and there is a lot of action to be a part of. Don’t just observe the action, be a part of sharing the it.
