IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  “The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat” is a saying that’s been around the sports world for a long time.  It’s still applicable today and applies to all sports, team or individual.  You have all played sports long enough to be on the winning end of an exciting or unexpected victory.  The same can be said about that devastating loss.  The agony of defeat seems to set in when it happens in your final game.  Whether it’s players playing in the NCAA Tournament or your local high school finale, that last loss is one that stays with you a lifetime.  While it seems like the end of the world the moment it happens, we all know that it isn’t.  Use those disappointing moments to inspire you to move onto bigger and greater things!

Adecco Staffing has an immediate need for temporary production support at Zimmer Biomet.  Positions require a good work history, a positive attitude and the ability to work in a team environment.  You must be 18 to apply.  Both full and part time positions are available.  This could be a good fit for students graduating this year.  Starting pay for general labor is $12/hour.  If you would like to learn more about the open positions, please contact April Marban at april.marban@adeccona.com, or at 574-549-6228.

SENIORS:  Please take note of this VERY IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID DEADLINE!  If you would like to qualify for financial aid from the state of Indiana, please remember that you MUST file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by TODAY at midnight.  It must be done on-line, and you need to set up a FSA ID for you and your parents.  Go to fafsa.gov for more information or to file. We also have some handouts in the Guidance Office which might help you with the process.  Seniors who are 21st Century Scholars – YOU MUST DO THIS or you may lose this scholarship!  See this note from Ancilla College:  The deadline is TODAY.  If they haven’t received an FSA ID yet, that needs to happen ASAP– It can take 24 hours. Waiting until TODAY will be too late.  Students who file after TODAY miss out on ALL Indiana financial aid.  They may still apply for federal aid, but they will get nothing from Indiana.  This isn’t just for students interested in private colleges or state universities– it is important to any upcoming graduate of yours who will consider going to school in the next 12 months.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  One of the great success stories this year is about a Division III basketball team, Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington.  Their 27-0 record is only part of the story.  Their unconventional coach, Eric Bridgeland, is a realist who relates to his players in a very unique way.  The following quote from USA Today sums up his approach:  “If you could wish your team one thing, I would wish they are having a blast and that they don’t feel pressure.  So that’s what we are doing. In our team visualization before every game, we talk about being creative and enthusiastic in handling these awesome situations we get into.”  Do you visualize success before your game?  This may be a key to Whitman’s success and yours!

It’s time for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  This purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.

Former GHS I.C.E. Student Mentors Current Intern

Laura Zacarias, a 2007 GHS graduate, was among the first Interdisciplinary Cooperative Education (I.C.E.) students at Goshen High School, studying under the direction of Brian Bechtel. She had a job working for Drs. Cripe, Stephens, and Stickel part-time as an optician/technician. I.C.E. is a 6-credit program spanning the school year, and offered only to seniors. The course combines classroom activities with on-the-job training. Two credits are given for the classroom portion, and four credits for the job training portion. Students work a minimum of 540 hours during the school year to receive the work-study credits.  The classroom portion of the course covers career related instruction such as: The job application process, career planning, effective communication, basic economics, personal finance, interpersonal relationships, and workplace legalities.  The course also utilizes local Human Resource Departments to conduct mock interviews.

Following her graduation from GHS, Mrs. Zacarias attended IUSB, where she studied biology and chemistry. She also continued working for Dr. Cripe, Stephens, and Stickel, a job she kept for eight years. According to Mrs. Zacarias, “After my internship, I was in love with the Eye field. It was such a rewarding job…I was really grateful for the internship I was placed in, I learned a great skill while there. I learned skills that I am still using today at my current job.” She has been working as a certified ophthalmic technician for Boling Vision Center for almost two years now, and is currently mentoring Lauren VanderReyden, a Goshen High School senior and internship student. “It is an awesome feeling to be able to pass down some of the skills I learned to another intern. I love seeing the same passion for this field in Lauren that I also had at that age.”

Under the instruction of Mrs. Zacarias, Lauren is learning to do all of the check-in tests and procedures of a technician. Those tests include checking visual acuity, intraocular pressures, eye movements, and pupil reactions. She is also doing different testing for various eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degenerations. Occasionally, Lauren gets to observe the procedures done in the office or surgery center. Office procedures could include the routine removal of styes, or the use of botox to control eye twitching or droopy eyelids. Surgery center procedures could include any type of ophthalmic surgery.

Lauren said that she chose to do an internship because as a child she had a lazy eye and wore patches for correction, so over the years she has had many conversations with doctors, including conversations about possible careers in the eye field. She stated she began to think about a career, and she wanted to learn more about all of the different job roles in an Ophthalmologist’s office. Lauren said that she has learned so much during her internship. “I took the medical terminology course at school and did very well, but I have learned even more by working here. I have learned more of the working medical vocabulary particularly related to the eyes, and also more about diseases of the eye and the tests that are used to determine diseases.”

The current teachers for I.C.E. and Internships are Mr. Ken Cross and Mrs. Tina Schmucker. Lauren stated that the program is still the same as when Mr. Bechtel was the instructor, but that since Mr. Cross and Mrs. Schmucker have additional and/or different contacts in the community, more work-study placements have been added. “We even have one student who is doing an internship at the Goshen airport, and he is flying planes!”

Here is Mason Short, pictured in the cockpit of a small plane at his internship.

Normally, an internship is a two-credit course for just one semester, but Lauren chose to do the internship class for the full year. At the end of the first semester, she gave a presentation about the work she had completed, and what she had learned. At the end of the second semester, she will sit for an interview for a summer job with the Human Resources staff at Boling Vision. The results of the interview will be passed along to her internship instructor, Mrs. Schmucker, and will compose a portion of her grade for the course.

Following graduation from GHS, Lauren plans to attend IU Bloomington to study science, with the intent to apply to IU medical school to become an ophthalmologist. She states that her internship has been very valuable, as it has allowed her to learn more about the field and to determine if a career in ophthalmology would be a good fit for her.

Both Laura and Lauren spoke very highly of the GHS work-study program that was just beginning in 2007, and continues to grow in 2017. The fact that a former student and a current student have found a connection over their educations and career aspirations is a great example of the strength and long-lasting impact of a Goshen High School education.

Thank you to the GHS work-study instructors who find unique placements for each student, to Laura for her ongoing mentorship, and to Lauren who continues to learn, and is beginning to find her future.

Lauren VanderReyden and Laura Zacarias

In our team visualization before every game, we talk about being creative and enthusiastic in handling these awesome situations we get into.”  Do you visualize success before your game?  This may be a key to Whitman’s success and yours!

It’s time for the annual GHS Prom Dress Drive!  This purpose of this drive is to provide free dresses for students who want to go to the prom but may be in financial need.  We have several dresses in various styles and sizes to choose from.  If you are in need of a prom dress or if you wish to donate a gently used dress, please contact Mrs. Hershberger or Mrs. Shakley.  You may also ask your SRT teacher for more information.

Honoring Susan Ellington

Thanks to the efforts of Goshen High School orchestra directors Jay Pfeifer and Sean Patrick, GHS Symphonic Orchestra students were able to leave school today, to visit and perform for former GHS orchestra director, Susan Ellington. According to Mr. Pfeifer, Susan “took over the Orchestra program in the late 90’s and grew it from one class of 30 kids into the big 150 person high school orchestra program that we have today”. Susan has been dealing with ongoing health issues since her retirement, and the students and directors wanted to honor her by giving her the gift of their music.

The students played five musical selections in various small ensembles, read poetry which acknowledged her contribution to them as their teacher and mentor, and presented her with flowers and hugs. The students involved included: Nathan Berkey, Hugh Birky, Emily Brown, Sergei Culp, Mackenzie Gracie Edmonds, Cade Fisher, Maggie Gallagher, Caroline Greaser, Matthew Herrmann, Katie Herschberger, Amy Holbrook, Greta Klassen, Claire Penner, Ariana Perez Diener, Matthew Roth, Katie Shirk, Olivia Thomas, and Noel Zak.

Their written program included this poem:

We Have Made Music

 Isn’t there a kind of sample brotherhood in the making of music?

Just a sample, under conditions that are transitory.

But one which might grow if it could be remembered and nurtured?

 Making music together is hard work that is fun.

Making music together creates a kind of brotherhood where failure is everybody’s loss.

Where success is a victory for all, where differences and inherited beliefs have no relevance.

We create a new world for a few moments; we are for a time in pastures green…

and remembering, wish the world could be like that, forever.

 

After enjoying the beautiful musical offering, Susan thanked the students and told them how much their visit and their music meant to her. She encouraged them to “keep music in your hearts, and keep making music”.

It was a meaningful morning for Susan, her family members, GHS teachers and students, and others who gathered to hear the music.

Susan, you have nurtured an orchestra program and planted seeds in the hearts of many who love music. The roots in your orchestra program are strong, and your students will continue to play on.

Thank you, from the many who love and care for you in the Goshen Community Schools family.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This is boys basketball sectional week.  Past history says it’s a week of surprises.  Will we have a snowstorm?  What ranked team will be the first out?  What school will provide the biggest shock of the week?  Is your school a favorite or the underdog to take the sectional crown?  There is nothing more fun than participating in an event that the whole school gets behind.  Whether it’s a school play, a choral event or a team advancing along in a state tournament, it’s fun to be involved as the excitement grows and the event arrives.  As a member of your student body, make it a point to get involved in the week’s festivities.  The support shown by the students might make a difference in the outcome of that close game.  History could be made and the memories from those exciting games could be something that you remember and talk about fifty years later!
