NEW PHILADELPHIA — Students enrolled in the Floral Design and Greenhouse Management program
at Buckeye Career Center are finding beauty in spring while preparing for prom.
The greenhouse is full of plants just beginning to sprout while the coolers are stocked with fresh flowers for walk-in purchase and prepared orders. Artificial flowers fill the tables with craft corsages and boutonniere orders for prom.
Jenna Lamp, a senior from Carrollton High School (CHS), chose Buckeye for more opportunities and to express her creativity, especially during prom season.
“Prom can be a hectic time but it’s fun to see our hard work come to life that night and see how happy people are when they receive their flowers,” said Lamp, who wants to eventually own her own flower shop or greenhouse. She also likes the daily maintenance of the greenhouse like watering and pruning the flowers.
Audrey Albright, also from CHS, is a junior in the program. Albright began her time at Buckeye in the Computer Assisted Design program, but quickly switched to the floral lab.
The true story of a real fake “Catch Me If You Can”, the Carrollton High School spring musical, will be held March 23-25 at 7 p.m. in Bell-Herron Middle School.
Tickets are $5 presale or $8 at the door. For tickets, call Mindy Domer at 330-627-8228 or email Alzana Nuzzolillo at email@example.com or visit the Fine Arts room in the high school.
Based on the hit film, the true story is a high-flying musical comedy about chasing your dreams and not getting caught. Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank Abagnale, Jr., portrayed by Kody Bennett, runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, doctor and a lawyer-living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. When Frank’s lies catch the attention of FBI agent Carl Hanratty, portrayed by Robert Husted, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.
Edison High School is set to undergo further improvements after the school board approved a Cleveland-based firm for the project.
During a special meeting March 9, the Edison Local Board of Education named the Brewer-Garrett Company as the design-and-build firm and approved a contract to complete the estimated $2.8 million upgrade at the high school.
Plans include renovating classrooms and installing an HVAC unit to heat and cool the building. Superintendent Bill Beattie said funding is derived from the district’s 2-mill, five-year emergency renewal levy that voters approved in 2014 and work will get under way shortly.
Classrooms on all three floors of the original high school building, which was formed in 1939, will receive new drywall, drop ceilings, LED lighting, and paint while the HVAC system will operate throughout the structure, with the exception of the kitchen, gym and band room.
“The HVAC work will start in the next four to six weeks and is set to be completed in October,” Beattie explained. “If funding is available, the plan is to run the HVAC and classroom renovations simultaneously. If the funds are not available the classrooms will be done by August of 2018.”
