Junior Michaela Carey was one of the two students chosen for the March student of the month. Carey has been immensely involved in music for a long time. She plays clarinet in marching band, symphonic band, and concert band.
Not only does she play a musical instrument, she also sings. Carey participates in concert choir, mixed chorus, show choir, magical choir, and this is her first year as a member of the York County Honors Choir.
Carey has been a part of every musical since her freshmen year. She has obtained the roles of an ape in Tarzan, The Wardrobe in the Beauty and the Beast, and Mrs. Paroo in The Music Man.
Academically, she has been taking Honors English since freshman year, and she plans on taking AP English next year. She took AP American History her sophomore year. “I’m really much more of an English and history person.” Carey said.
In her free time, Carey enjoys singing, and takes voice lessons outside of school. She also enjoys drawing and art.
After graduating, Carey plans on going to college and double majoring in vocal performance and music education and possibly going on to get her Master’s degree after that.
“I think I try to be positive a lot of the time about everything, and I try to stay organized and work hard,” Carey said.

Junior Dan Brownsword has been selected as one of the two students of the month for March by the Red Lion-Dallastown Rotary Club.
For all of his high school career, Dan has been heavily involved in the school’s music program. He plays piano and malt percussion and is a part of the marching, symphonic, concert, and jazz bands, as well as pit orchestra.
He is also a member of the National Honors Society, robotics team, and is on the yearbook staff.
“I really like being in the music program, but yearbook has been a really fun time this year as well,” he said. “Most of the time, it is less stressful, and you really get to know about the people around you and it’s really a fun time in there.”
Academically, Dan maintains a Distinguished Honor Roll status and enjoys the time he spends in his classes.
“The subjects that I like most are usually science-related, so that would be physics this year,” he said. Dan plans to use his love for science later on in his life.
“I want to go into Aerospace Engineering, and there’s definitely a lot of physics involved in that,” he said. “I would love to go to Massachusetts Tech, it’s a really great university, but I’m also look ing at Virginia Tech and Georgia Tech as well.”
