For some students the path toward their future remains indefinite.  Not all graduating seniors have a plan set in stone for after May 10.

One option is to join the Peace Corps.  Though it may sound unconventional,  the Peace Corps offers many opportunities and experiences.

On April 10, Career Services held an information session about the Peace Corps. Recruiter and former volunteer Charles Portney hosted and informed potential Peace Corps volunteers. Continue reading

‘Godspell’ offers contemporary take on New Testament

By Randee May, Staff Writer

What do you do when a fight breaks out in the middle of a play? Do you rush up onto the stage to help break up the fight, join in with the cast as they cheer or simply sit back and enjoy the show?

The answer is quite obvious when it’s the Armstrong Masquers presenting “Godspell” – you just let the pieces fall where they may.

“I’ve seen a version of Godspell before, but this one was way better,” Catherine Rice, a Liberty County High School student, said. “It was fun and I liked the music.” Continue reading

“When I was a freshman I didn’t realize what it meant to be a Pirate,” said senior Marlen Hacke. “Now, looking back, I can see that being a Pirate means a lot more than just getting your bachelorette and practicing a lot. I learned that you are always capable of doing more than you think you can. All of it showed me that hard work and dedication will bring you closer to your goals.” Continue reading

No Tiger, no Phil, no problem

The Masters 2014

By Dalton Johnson, Sports Editor

A loving lefty defeated a talented righty at this year’s Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. Close your eyes and you would initially envision Phil Mickelson beating Tiger Woods, but in reality neither were seen on Sunday in Augusta.

Woods could not play in the Masters due to an unhealthy back, and Phil found himself in golf hell after multiple double and triple bogeys, causing him to miss the cut. The results of Augusta are what seemed like a decade ago of Tiger and Phil. With both out, it seemed inevitable that the biggest tournament of the year was set for a boring disappointment, but what we learned was golf can be just fine without two of its biggest stars.
