IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report-Volleyball

An IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report from Tim Yoder, a line-official at Concord:

Both teams (Concord and Goshen) displayed a level of sportsmanship during this contest. I was a line-official and all the athletes were top-class! I was impressed with the Concord team as they kept battling through the entire game. Goshen kept pushing hard and if a call did not go their way, they showed no emotion, they just huddled up and moved on.

Coach Hale from Concord was very classy.

I was impressed with both Elizabeth and Sophia Kirkton from Goshen High School. They took “coaching” and displayed a humble class.

The entire Concord team kept working hard and Coach Hale kept coaching despite the score – I can say – I never knew the score by looking at the Concord team – they just kept playing and working.

Way to go GHS volleyball and Coach Howard! You’ve got game, but you’ve also been recognized for your classy representation of Goshen Community Schools. Well done!

IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report

The following information is from an IHSAA Exemplary Sportsmanship Report by Plymouth tennis coach Brad Haeck:

Our player, Mitch Rose (Plymouth), and the opposing player, Ryan Harmelink (Goshen) were in a #1Singles battle in the third set, that would ultimately decide a 3-2 match (that Goshen would end up winning). Mitch began to cramp at 1-1 in the third set. Both Ryan, and his coach Daniel Love, expressed concern for Mitch when he started cramping, and gave him extra time to originally address the issue when it happened, and to later receive treatment for it. Their patience and compassion were much appreciated.

Thank you to Coach Love and Athletic Director Larry Kissinger for teaching our GHS athletes good sportsmanship. And thank you to Ryan Harmelink for being a great student athlete and an outstanding representative for Goshen Community Schools.

Ryan Harmelink

Any student driving needs to have a parking tag.  You can get this through Mrs. Haney in the Bookkeeper’s office.  You need to have a valid license, valid registration, valid proof of insurance (this means that none of these can be expired), and $5.  OJ has started tagging vehicles without parking permits, so please make this a priority. You don’t want to be the proud new owner of a big orange sticker.

WORK PERMITS: When you get a work permit EVERY box needs to be filled out on the Intent to Employ form before we will issue you the work permit. Please bring completed forms to the main office in the morning and they will be completed by the end of the school day.

If you are a student that leaves the building at any time during normal school hours then you must have a sticker on your ID if it’s for a class (PACT, Building Trades, EACC, Merit, shortened schedules, Red Zone, internship, yearbook, etc.) that indicates that or a blue pass from the office indicating that you have permission to leave. Building Trades, EACC and Red Zone students are also required to sign out at the Welcome Center before leaving. You can get this sticker in the main office from Mrs. Wolfe or Mrs. Kuiper.

Please stop by the commons area (either by the cafeteria or outside the main office) during lunch if you are interested is speaking to the following:

  • Tuesday, September 18th             Army Reserves
  • Wednesday, September 19th        Trine University
  • Thursday, September 20th            Purdue-Ft. Wayne
  • Wednesday, October 3rd              Bethel College

  • Tuesday, October 9th                   Holy Cross
  • Tuesday, October 16th                 Grace College
  • Wednesday, October 17th            Purdue Poly-Tech, South Bend

Just a reminder that if you are coming to see Ms. Tovar you need to check in with the staff in the main office and fill out a request to see her. She will send a white pass for you as she has time. Please do not cut through the nurse’s office to get to her. You need to enter through the main office.

GHS National Merit Semifinalists

Congratulations to Goshen High School seniors Felix Perez Diener and Katherine Shirk who were recently named as National Merit Semifinalists!

From the press release:

Today officials of the National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) announced the names of approximately 16,000 Semifinalists in the 64th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. These academically talented high school seniors have an opportunity to continue in the competition for some 7,500 National Merit Scholarships with more than $31 million that will be offered next spring. To be considered for a Merit Scholarship award, Semifinalists must fulfill several requirements to advance to the Finalist level of the competition. Over 90 percent of the Semifinalists are expected to attain Finalist standing, and about half of the Finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title.

NMSC, a not-for-profit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds and by approximately 410 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

Over 1.6 million juniors in about 22,000 high schools entered the 2019 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2017 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of Semifinalists, representing less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.

Again, congratulations to Felix Perez Diener and Katherine Shirk. Well done!
