IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Theodore Roosevelt was once quoted as saying, “Believe you can and you are halfway there.”  In the world of sports, confidence is a key component.  If you believe you can do something, combined with hard work and determination, anything is possible.  However, just believing won’t get you across the finish line.  There are no shortcuts to success.  Practice and repetition is required and a commitment that is unwavering should be expected if you want to reach your highest goals.  What do you believe you can achieve?  How committed are you to the work you must do to attain that goal?  Are you getting closer to your finish line?  It’s very rewarding when you get to cross it!

Are you an EACC student taking an IB exam?  If so, please see either Mrs. Kuiper, Mrs. Collins, or Mr. Nichols to get your attendance letter in order to excuse your absence at EACC from when you were taking the IB exam.

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  Theodore Roosevelt was once quoted as saying, “Believe you can and you are halfway there.”  In the world of sports, confidence is a key component.  If you believe you can do something, combined with hard work and determination, anything is possible.  However, just believing won’t get you across the finish line.  There are no shortcuts to success.  Practice and repetition is required and a commitment that is unwavering should be expected if you want to reach your highest goals.  What do you believe you can achieve?  How committed are you to the work you must do to attain that goal?  Are you getting closer to your finish line?  It’s very rewarding when you get to cross it!

The City’s “Bridge Walk”

GHS musicians provided music for the city’s celebratory Bridge Walk on Wednesday afternoon:

 

From the city’s press release:

To allow Goshen drivers that have patiently endured the two-year building process of the bridge connecting the area in front of Goshen High School to the east end of Pike Street, the City has arranged for a time for everyone to see the huge project for up close and personal—for themselves!

You are invited to be a part of a bridge walk of the new US 33 North Connector before it opens to traffic.

Join us Wednesday, May 9 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the southeast end of the North Connector to catch a first glimpse of the work done before the overpass is opened to traffic. Participants are welcome to come and go any time during that hour.

At 5 p.m., sharp, Mayor Jeremy Stutsman and Brent Rheinheimer, the community member who proposed a walk, will give an opening statement. After that, the community will be free to walk up and over the three bridges (over the Marion Line, the Big Four and Lincoln Avenue).

This event is open to everyone in the community. Please park in the Goshen High School parking lot. An officer from the Goshen Police

Department will be stationed north of the lot to help pedestrians cross Lincolnway East during this busy time of day.

The walk will go on, rain or shine, but not if it is storming. If any doubt, check the City’s website after 4:30 p.m. at goshenindiana.org.

The Indiana Department of Transportation will host an official ribbon-cutting Wednesday, May 9 at 1 p.m., at the same location. The public is invited to attend that event, too.

Please come be a part of our bridge walk!

Thank you,

Sharon Hernandez
Communications Coordinator

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This past weekend the NFL held their annual draft. Two of the first three picks were quarterbacks and over 200 college players were selected for the opportunity to play on Sundays.  However, it was the quote from the 3rd player taken, by the New York Jets, that caught my attention.  Sam Darnold, the quarterback out of the University of Southern California, had the classiest comment after his name was called.  Upon leaving the stage after his selection, Darnold said, “Whatever the coaches want me to do, whether they want me to sit or want me to play, I want to star in my role.”  In this day of self-promoting athletes, it’s great to see that this up and coming professional player has the proper outlook.  High school student-athletes need more role models that they can look up to and emulate.  Let’s hope more athletes at all levels share Darnold’s philosophy and star in their role!

IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week:  This past weekend the NFL held their annual draft. Two of the first three picks were quarterbacks and over 200 college players were selected for the opportunity to play on Sundays.  However, it was the quote from the 3rd player taken, by the New York Jets, that caught my attention.  Sam Darnold, the quarterback out of the University of Southern California, had the classiest comment after his name was called.  Upon leaving the stage after his selection, Darnold said, “Whatever the coaches want me to do, whether they want me to sit or want me to play, I want to star in my role.”  In this day of self-promoting athletes, it’s great to see that this up and coming professional player has the proper outlook.  High school student-athletes need more role models that they can look up to and emulate.  Let’s hope more athletes at all levels share Darnold’s philosophy and star in their role!

The GHS and Wawasee softball teams helped raise more than $3,100 for Cancer Resources for Elkhart County on Friday, April 27th.

Everence® was a sponsor for the Strike Out Cancer night at Shanklin Park. Together, the Goshen and Wawasee teams and fans raised $3,174.00 to benefit Cancer Resources for Elkhart County. They sold T-shirts and pink sugar cookies the night of the game, and passed a helmet to collect for this worthy cause.

Each team had a cancer survivor throw out the first pitch. GHS Assistant Coach Jeryl Miller’s wife Kim was honored to throw out a first pitch, although she said “I didn’t do it very well”. There also a balloon launch before the game, and each team wore pink uniforms, pink ribbons and pink “eye black.” Goshen won the JV game, with Wawasee winning the varsity game in extra innings. It was a fun evening for all!

Pictured below from left, GHS Head Coach Brent Kulp, Kim Miller, the father of a Wawasee player, and Wawasee’s Head Coach.

Thank you, Everence, for helping sponsor this event, and thank you to all in attendance for making the evening a success!

 

 

Observant GHS Student Leads to Classroom Enrichment

GHS student Iyla Stoy is a student in one of Cathy DeMeyer’s science classes this semester, and according to Mrs. DeMeyer, she is “very into birds”. Iyla recently noticed that there was a mating pair of Kestrels nesting under the roof of the GCS warehouse. Since spotting the birds, she has used binoculars to get a better look at them. According to Mrs. DeMeyer “Iyla is pretty sure they are nesting, so maybe there will be babies soon.”

Mrs. DeMeyer plans to walk her GHS students over to the warehouse in the next week or so since she does “a birds of prey unit at the end of the school year, and this is too good to pass up….Kestrels are pretty cool and they are a part of the Falcon family”.

The birds will look much like the pictures below.
