What are our Centennial Eagles doing after school ends? We hunted down three students to find out their plans for summer break.

Darren DeGroff

Freshman

”Over the summer, I will be building a PC in order to stream League of Legends on Twitch. I will be spending a week in Siesta Key, Florida with my family during July. In the downtime of the summer I will be at the pool with my friends. I might pretend to study a little, but in all likelihood I will take it easy this summer and try to rewind.”


Praagna Kashyap

Sophomore

“I’m gonna be on a research team studying neuroscience.” She, like any other Centennial student, will “study for SATs because I have to do that.”

 

Josh Kim

Junior

“I will be working as a private tutor during the summer as well as studying for the SAT on August 25th. I will also be volunteering with my church and I am going to Philly for five days.”

On Thursday and Friday of last week, the  junior class took part in junior interviews.

Dressed in their business attire and prepared with resumes, students sat down with volunteer interviewers to answer their questions.

The interviews, a Howard County graduation requirement, are meant to help students exercise real-world skills; they allow juniors to practice and prepare for future job and college situations as they near the end of their high school careers.

Every year, students often feel nervous going into the interview, however, junior Sydney Vigderhouse advises rising juniors to “just be themselves and be confident.”

On Wednesday, March 13, Centennial held its very first film festival hosted by the
Centennial Film Club. All Centennial students were encouraged to submit a short film to be
judged, awarded, and watched at the festival. Summer Shen, the Film Club president, organized the event along with the help of the club members and sponsors.

The film makers all put a lot of thought and time into their unique films, and it showed. Peter Ganunis, a member of the club and a passionate film maker, attended because he wanted to see “what the passionate, young, film makers of Centennial are creating.” Ganunis said that he enjoyed watching all of the unique films and was interested in learning from what techniques and films were used.

There were four films submitted and each of the participants had their films viewed by the audience, received an award, and had the chance to say something about their process. The top two films were “Mirage,” a romance submitted by David Huang, and “Dreams,” a thriller submitted by Carolin Harvey. All of the films were scored based on ideas, execution, originality, camera angles, and sound effects.

“I like making videos and [the festival] was a good way to show what I’ve done” said
Huang.

Shen was delighted by the submissions and turnout. “I wanted to start a small scale festival for beginners so they could feel more included,” said Shen. She is hoping that next year there will be even more submissions from beginners in the school.
