Art Conference

Words: Bridget Israel

On Friday, October 16, 40 National Art Honors Society students from Centennial and their art teachers, Mrs. Collins, Mr. Hanssen, and Ms. Tulkoff, held a convention in the school.

The county supervisor called Centennial High School asking if the art program was interested in hosting, and the art teachers all agreed that they were. The convention was called the MAEA and it was an art teacher conference where about 400 teachers from all around Maryland came to set up their own tables.

The 40 National Art Honor Society students, who signed up to help, set up for the conference all Thursday and came in for the actual conference to serve lunch, set up tables for teachers, and assist them. The students got a lot of experience and the chance to feel like real art teachers.

Junior Maggie Sullivan, a NAHS student, said, “I really enjoyed being surrounded by mature artist and budding artist.”

The convention wasn’t only work for the students, they really got to enjoy themselves. They learned a lot from the teachers, received free art supplies and food, and also got the chance to buy extra art supplies.

“It wasn’t like any other conference I’ve been to. It was welcoming and inviting,” said junior Jackie Lee.  

Teachers were raving and complementing the students of the Centennial Art Program, who took their day off to help out with the convention. The visiting teachers had nothing but good things to say about the students, like how polite and helpful they were. Many of the teachers were so impressed that they made comments about how wonderful it would be to be an art teacher at Centennial.

Mrs. Collins said, “I was very proud of my students because of their enthusiasm and willingness to help. They really made Centennial look good and I was very proud to call them our students.”  One booth that was set up by Centennial sophomore Isa Hanssen was to raise money for their charity Art With a Heart. Art With a Heart is a program that helps the United Way Local Chapter with the Maryland Family Stability Initiative, which prevents families from becoming homeless. At this booth there was a presentation about what they were accomplishing with Art With a Heart and there were original artworks being sold to raise money. Mr. Molfino, the County Fine Arts Supervisor, asked I. Hanssen to show her presentation at the Keynote Address.

“The Maryland Art Education Association Conference ended up being a great opportunity for [Centennial] and its Art Program. It was great to show off the art department of Centennial to other art educators in Maryland.”, said I. Hanssen.

Spring Sports are Here

Words: Ashley Berry

Although the winter weather continues to hit Maryland, Centennial High School’s spring athletes are ready to get in the game. Spring sports season is here and Centennial High School’s lacrosse, baseball, softball, and track student athletes came to school on Saturday, Feb. 28 for tryouts in hopes of making a winning team.

Centennial athletes are pushing themselves to try and reserve their spot. Maggie Sullivan, Ashley Mazer and Stevie Sedlacko have been anticipating tryouts and are pumped to play for Centennial this spring.

Maggie Sullivan, a sophomore at Centennial High School, has been playing girls lacrosse for 8 years, 7 on a recreational team and 1 on Centennial girl’s JV lacrosse team.

Hoping to make the girls varsity team, Sullivan said, “I think I can bring a lot of heart, enthusiasm and hustle to the team.”

She has been hard at work preparing for this season. “The past two weeks I have been coming after school whenever I can to play wall ball and run sprints as well as train with my indoor club field hockey team,” said Sullivan.

After all the hard work, she said “I am really excited for the season to build up my strength and take my stick skills to a new level. I’m also excited to bond with the team, get to know people and to go far as a team.”

Ashley Mazer is eager to make the varsity outdoor track team. As a junior, this is her second year trying out for track and the first year she is required to make varsity. Mazer feels prepared for the season because she has been “running cross country and indoor track earlier this year.”

She is very excited for the season and said, “I can’t wait to spend it with some of the best people I know. Also, I’m excited for the running and more meets to compete in.” If she makes the varsity team, Mazer thinks she will “add a good, positive and encouraging energy to the team.”

Hoping to play baseball with friends he hasn’t had the chance to play with in the past, Stevie Sedlacko said, “I can hardly sit and wait around for the anticipation of the opening day.” After spending his freshman year in high school at Mount Saint Joseph, he is working to take a spot on one of the Centennial baseball teams.

“For all of the fall and majority of the winter, I went to Coach Ahearn’s workouts after school. I also tried to throw and hit as much as I could in between basketball practices after school,” said Sedlacko.

With the ability to make the JV or varsity team, Sedlacko said, “I hope to make the team that the coaches think is best for me.” No matter which team he makes, he feels he “can bring the intangibles to the team: the hard work, leadership, and knowing I may not play, but am willing to do whatever is necessary to help the team.”
