YOU submit the order form, photos, and information, and WE design an ad for you!

You can purchase full, half, quarter, or and eight of a page.

First Day at HeLa!

And we’re already featured in The Columbian!

Teacher Jack Thompson goes through the attendance list for freshmen on the first day of school at Henrietta Lacks Health and Bioscience High School on Monday morning. This is Thompson’s first year in the classroom. He said he formed bonds with his fellow teachers on the picket lines these past two weeks. Amanda Cowan/The Columbian

Kelsi Young, a 16-year-old junior, announced at 7:50 a.m. that she needed a nap.

“I didn’t think it would start this week, so I stayed up late,” she said.

Jacob Chumbley, who greeted people with the enthusiastic hugs only a 16-year-old can manage before 8 a.m., said he was looking forward to seeing his friends, meeting new teachers and planning a good prom.

<4 Minute Film Fest

The principal of Heritage High School (Derek Garrison) and his Freshman son are inviting folks from all around the area to submit entries to a Film Festival.

A note from Derek:

If there’s anything you can do to support this I appreciate it on a couple of fronts. One – I think it’s a heckuva good idea and something our community could get into regardless of who puts it on. Two – this is his “passion project” for a thing we’re piloting at Heritage this year called Student Agency Time in which students personalize their own learning around something they’re excited about. In this case, Danny loves acting and film editing.

So, we thank you for anything you can do to get this info (see attachment) into the right hands in your neck of the woods. Actors, filmmakers, funny creative kids, documentarians, etc – we’d love them all to know about this opportunity.

Thanks much,

Derek Garrison
