Your tb-two* high school bulletin board for April 17

CHAMBERLAIN HIGH

cli·che: The philosophical thinking faces of the Chieftain newspaper staff just get deeper and deeper as the year progresses. Junior Andrew Fatzinger contemplates the editor's claims of his basketball story having a cliched introduction. Remember guys, starting that essay with a definition is not original. Abby Rinaldi, senior, tb-two* staffer

HILLSBOROUGH HIGH

A different message: Hillsborough High students took part in the Seminole Heights Relay for Life the first weekend in April. Teams participated in battles of tug-of-war, talent contests and scavenger hunts throughout the night. The event raised about $31,000 for the American Cancer Society. During a silent lap to honor those who have had cancer, bags with candles spelled out "cure" in the football bleachers. Hannah Baade, senior, tb-two* staffer

NEWSOME HIGH

Will you? Senior Caylee Fredette is asked to prom by her USF freshman boyfriend, Patrick Gerardi. Gerardi spelled out "prom?" with candles in her driveway and surprised her when she returned home from church. If she had had any extra candles, she would've spelled out "yes!" Celeste Brown, senior, tb-two* staffer

GIBBS HIGH

Hallelujah: When the Richey Community Orchestra and Richey Community Chorus presented Handel's Messiah on Sunday, junior Samuel Hild was one of four soloists participating in this monumental sacred work. "It's very challenging," said Denise Isaacson, the orchestra's executive director. "The music is not easy for the musicians or the singers, so to be able to present it on a professional level is thrilling." Hild, who is a tenor, is in the Pinellas County Center for the Arts at Gibbs. He has been a member of the Florida All-State Reading Chorus, the Pinellas All-County Chorus and Center Stage and Troupe with Ruth Eckerd Hall. tb-two* staff
