Second semester, infamously known for slacking off that occurs at Heritage High School, presents itself once again with a new batch of “senioritis”.
Hailing from the consistently sunny and warm Miami, Florida, a new teacher has trecked to tumultuous Colorado to serve as a teacher at Heritage High School.
A familiar face to the halls of Heritage is returning to her post this school year and her first year back has a lot of excitement in store. Ms. Penny Lynch has come back to Heritage High School after working at the school for six years, and leaving for a nine-year recess to be a stay-at-home mom and for her three children.
This 2014-2015 school year is witness to a multitude of new faculty members joining the Heritage High School community, but one face stands out from the rest.
Three women lead some of the most helpful upperclassmen in the school. Ms. Amanda Glerup, Ms. Patty Masciotro and Ms. Jill Rickard are the LINK sponsors at Heritage High School.
The Heritage LINK program is a selected group of dedicated and exceptional juniors and seniors that mentor the freshman throughout their first year in high school.
Attending Penn State, Mr. Brett Wamsley did not make the decision to teach until his junior year of college. After working at summer camps and taking on the role of a leader, he realized that a Biology major with good leadership is perfect for teaching. Moving here for the fishing, skiing, and outdoor activities in 2003, he now claims to be Colorado proud.
When they walked in on Thursday, the hallways lit up. Mystery Inc. was one of the many groups that dressed up for Halloween, but what makes them special is that they have been planning this for weeks.
Chaney King graduated from Heritage High School in the class of 2000. She had a remarkable bubbly and inspiring personality that was irreplaceable. She was always happy and no matter what was happening she would say “it’s all good”. She was a swimmer and a star student while at Heritage. After she graduated she then continued on to the Air Force Academy.
10 years ago this month Chaney King was tragically killed in car accident at the age of 20. She was a passenger in the car with her boyfriend when he didn’t see an overgrown stop sign.
The coaches teach them the game. The fans cheer them on. The players give it their all. And the partners — the Heritage students on the court beside their HHS PACE teammates — make Unified Eagles a positive and exciting experience for everyone involved.
As Special Olympics Colorado describes, Unified partners become teammates and friends with the athletes, “promoting physical health and bringing people together.” Heritage partners have fully embraced this mission.
