Congratulations to our Raider bowling team, who finished as the runner-up at the LHSAA State Bowling Championship! Our Raiders entered the playoffs as the #21 seed and defeated #1 Central Baton Rouge. Ultimately, we fell to Brother Martin in the championship game, but we are still full of Raider Pride for our team who gave their all!
Congratulations to senior Channing Holmes for winning the Return to Home Scholarship. This scholarship is an essay contest, hosted by Raider Alumnus Mr. Nick Impastato '68, with the title, "My address may change, but I will always be home at 1901 Severn."
Channing was awarded $1,000 for his essay at Senior Day 2019.
Congratulations to junior Jack Piwko for being selected to attend the Franklin & Marshall College Prep Immersion Program in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, this summer.
Franklin & Marshall College Prep is a three-week, pre-college immersion program for rising high-school seniors that offers the affective experience of college with substantive courses taught by F&M professors and communal life in their residence and dining halls.
Students choose two seminar-style courses in subjects that range from environmental science to creative writing to architectural design, and share their final work in a project fair. They also provide workshops that help students navigate the college-admission process and promote their personal development. All expenses, including travel, are covered for students who are chosen to attend this three-week, pre-college program.
Way to go, Jack!
Congratulations to junior Justin Barnewold whose artwork titled Raising the Flag, a drawing of the iconic 1945 photograph taken by Joe Rosenthal, was voted "Audience Choice Best of Show" during last weekend's Fine Arts Showcase.
The Fine Arts Showcase is an annual event which highlights all facets of Archbishop Rummel High School's Fine Arts Department. This year's event included a display of student artwork, solo performances by Raider Band members Spencer Moore and Abby Southworth, and several Genesian performances of Richard II. All guests who viewed the art display were invited to vote for one artwork that stood out to them over the remaining 270 artworks on display. Justin's technical skill, attention to detail, and outstanding work ethic propelled his artwork to the top.
