Thanks For A Memorable Year At Douglas High School

Posted By on June 2, 2015

Dear Editor

A quote that summarizes this year is, “We don’t grow when things are easy; we grow when we face challenges.” From August 18th until May 29th Douglas High School has faced the challenges, changes, and adventures that renovations bring. Amidst all the changes within our school, DHS continually strived to make each event throughout the year equally as memorable as the last.

With the help of DHS All Sports Boosters, Rita Borselli & DHS Screenprinting, Kid Pix Studio, DHS Cheerleaders, DHS JROTC Tiger Battalion, Allison Smith and “The Pride of the Carson Valley” DHS Marching Band, Karan Seelbinder and Jim Abbott, our fall homecoming, DT Remix, was a hit.

Our Hunger Games-inspired winter homecoming was a killer success because of the DHS Basketball Program & Coaches, and Amanda Laca & the DHS Yearbook Staff. The students cheered the basketball team on to a victory over Wooster and celebrated the win at the homecoming dance the next night.

Mr. DHS was a huge accomplishment and would not have been possible without the help of A Gourmet Sewing Company, the DHS Senior Events Committee, Accolades Trophies & Engraving, JT Basque Restaurant, Saletti’s Restaurant and Bar, Carson Valley Golf Course, Tahoe Ridge Winery, Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel, Jonny Lawrence, and Steve Gustafson. It was held at the CVIC hall for the first time and was a sell-out event.

DHS’s Casino Royale Prom was the first to be held in the new commons. Juniors and Seniors danced, gambled, and enjoyed the desserts all through the night. This event would not have been possible without the help of Adam Dedmon, Joe Andrews, Jay Frey, Kelly Winter, Keith Cole, Katy Shipley, all our student volunteers, and DHS Culinary Department. Without these individuals prom would not have been possible.

Over the course of the year here at Douglas, there is a select group of people who dedicate hours upon hours to make every event spectacular. Jason Berry, Mike Moore & the DHS Custodial Staff, Jim Grant & Caryn Haller from The Record Courier, Joey Crandall and the Carson Valley Times, Karan Seelbinder, the DHS Administration, DHS Staff & Student Body, and the entire Carson Valley community have supported each of Douglas High’s endeavors throughout this school year and many more.

This year full of change was a positive experience for all because of the people and businesses listed above. Without the support of all these incredible people, our transition into the new and improved Douglas High would not have been nearly as easy. Thank you for all the support throughout the years and making 2015 one to remember.
Here’s to many more memories!
