Star Spangled Banner Bandit!
Kiana Amaro '18
The morning of January 26th at 2:57am, the middle school’s flag was stolen by some unknown bandit. He has been described by Officer Hillman as a white male, wearing a dark jacket and tan pants, and they were seen driving a red new model Ford. Later that same day, the same bandit was seen at the high school trying to steal our flag but they could not be clearly seen in any of the cameras surrounding either pole. So far, there has been no updates on the whereabouts of the flag. But, if you can provide any information, you can reach Officer Hillman at (269) 961-9759.
Pennfield Drama Department Showing "The Bachelor"
Jordan Henry '19
Everyone quiet on the set! The show is about to begin! For the past three weeks, a cast of 32 students have been hard at work rehearsing for Pennfield High School’s spring play! This year the production being performed is “The Bachelor,” which is a parody-spoof of The Bachelorette and American Idol being directed by Steve Bowen, Pennfield’s choir and acting director. The Emerald interviewed some of the cast members. One of the members interviewed was Isaiah Duncan who said, “Everything’s coming together quite well. We laugh a lot.” Isaiah is the lead role, Yokel, and is tasked to memorize over 200 lines! Isaiah told us that the play is set in a modern day kingdom ran by King Evian. Under unrevealed circumstances, Yokel, described as a “not-so bright-poor villager from the hills,” finds himself in possession of the King’s scepter, making him ruler of the kingdom. Yokel soon discovers that he must have a wife to rule beside as queen, and so he holds a competition much like a mix between The Bachelorette and American Idol (complete with their very own brutally honest British judge “Simon Towel”) in order to determine which one of the five bachelorettes will become his wife. The play is estimated to be about an hour and a half long, and laughs are definitely going to be in order. Be sure to be in the audience on opening night, March 23rd, to support your fellow Pennfield Panthers! Tickets go fast!
Bobby Holley Makes a Difference
Alison Griffith '20
Mr. Holley is a substitute teacher in the Pennfield school district. Mr. Holley is an activist against bullying, drugs, crime, and abuse around our community. He has dedicated his life to making a change, and making the world a safer place. Once Mr. Holley started subbing in middle and high schools, he became aware of how kids were affected by bullying. Mr. Holley is trying to end bullying so students can be safer among their peers. A way he makes students get involved is by having them write a page essay on how bullying has affected them, then he will reward them with a T-shirt. Mr. Holley also crawls on his hands and knees to Lansing and Marshall to bring awareness to bullying and get attention of bystanders. Another way he raises awareness is performing R&B concerts for our community to bring people together. Mr. Holley will never stop the fight to make a change in our community. Pennfield is lucky to have Mr. Holley in our buildings on a regular basis.
