Sneak peak at Fashion Show

By Mark Stanislavov, Class of 2014

9:10 am.   The atmosphere was calm, but a little electric. The George Washington Fashion Show Sneak Peak was a blast!  It all started with an assortment of white dresses and shirts, along with pants and tights. Going from white, to black, to very colorful dresses, that part of the show was appetizing.  Every one of the models had steel faces showing the likes of a true model in the making.  The men had really well-designed outfits.

9:17 am.   The next event was star-studded featuring tight, shiny clothing –  leather like there was no tomorrow, and tons of dark colors.  The styles looked to me as if the models stepped out of a biker hang-out.  There were also bunches of pop for the men, and ovations throughout the auditorium.  The women had a nice amount of pop themselves.

9:26 am.   While Susanna played “All the Lights” on piano, the theme was “Pre-Fall” and boy, they almost made me fall with their wonderful Autumn-themed outfits.  The intro was confusing, but unique, and it kept my attention.  Most of the clothing was simple but darkly colored, and gave an alienating tone.  It made feel very comfortable.

That was just a small appetizer for the big event later tonight.  I am ecstatic and excited to see what they have on the menu. Tonight’s wonderful fashion dinner shall be glorious!

Doors open at 5:30 pm at George Washington High School.  No specific end time however, you can’t time fashion darling, it’s all about presentation, punctuation, and elegance.

Sean Forbes in concert at GWHS

By Scott Siley, Jenna Vaugn and Bridget Sullivan, Class of 2014

Sean Forbes is a 31 year old deaf rapper from Detroit. Sean wasn’t born deaf; when he was one he got a very high fever that blew out his ear drums and he hasn’t been able to hear since. He recently performed in our school and we had an opportunity to interview him as part of our Sports & Entertainment Marketing Program.

We asked him, “were there any difficulties growing up deaf” he responded by saying that sports were very difficult for him because he didn’t know when to start and stop playing.  He told us that he “loved music since he was a little kid.” He started playing the drums when he was young and was inspired to be a drummer when he got older. When he got older, he figured out if he was going to go anywhere with his music career then he would have to sing.  In 2006, his dream of being a musician came true upon singing a record with the Bass Brothers who were discovered by Eminem in Detroit. His band has recorded 50 songs and they are looking forward to releasing their first album on April 2nd called “Perfect Imperfection.”

Kevin Hart

By Max Carrerro, Class of 2012

I respect Kevin Hart a lot because he is an alumnus of  George Washington High School.  He is very inspirational to me because like him, I plan to become a comedian in the future. 

Kevin Hart was just like me when he was in high school. He  had ambititions and planned on following his dreams, and I feel the same way.  I hope that people see me for who I really am and genuinely enjoy my act.  One day, I hope that everyone who has ever attended Washington realizes that both  Kevin Hart and I were the two most charismatic men who were ever a part of this school!

What’s happening around GWHS

By Larry Liu, Class of 2010
National Honor Society
The National Honor Society has been involved in raising funds for families in need, donating canned food to poor families, and hosting  a coat drive and a bake sale.
The funds for the bake sale go toward buying new sashes and robes for the NHS. The NHS prides itself on raising money for a good cause. It plans to launch a car wash in the upcoming months ahead, and will participate in a Multiple Sclerosis Walk and Mother’s Day Walk, both of which will be held in May.
NHS officer Anjerie Yohn said that this year has been the best, because the NHS could make a lot of accomplishments, and is eager to help out the community. For the future, she hopes the students in the National Honors Society to continue to help their community and strive for academic excellence.

Field Hockey team plays an amazing season

Seniors on 2009 Field Hockey Team

By Andrea Kusselson, Class of 2010

The field hockey team had one of its best seasons ever. The odds were against the team, with two new coaches and almost half the team having graduated last year.

The new coaches are Ms. Tunney and Mrs. Hughes.  Ms. Tunney is brand new to the school, and Mrs. Hughes had not coached in years. The team started off in a scrimmage versus Archbishop Ryan, which the Eagles lost, but this only made the players work harder.
