Recently, five of PWHS’s own were entered into the Visually Literate High School Art Show held by Shawnee State University. The art show was held from May 10 to May 18 and on the 18th SSU held the award presentation which ended very well for many of the students. Out of 137 artworks entered only 50 were accepted and five of them happened to be from Portsmouth West. The five students were Taylor Carver, Madison Cochran, Jade Ratliff, Casey Rigsby, and Katie Woten. Taylor Carver received 3rd place in the Sculpture category with her “Gossip Gown,” Madison Cochran placed 3rd in Painting with “Under the Sea,” and Casey Rigsby received 3rd in B&W Drawing with his project “__.” All students are very excited with their awards and are honored to even be chosen to be in the art show, knowing it is a great award alone.

Mrs. Bazler's 1st, 6th, and 7th period Anatomy and Physiology classes went to Shawnee State University to examine cadavers of the human body. Students of the class could either pick to go on the trip in the morning or the afternoon. Students who went in the morning got to eat lunch at Tim Horton's and students who went in the afternoon got to eat lunch at Gattis pizza. Anatomy and Physiology students have been dissecting a cat in group for a little over a month where students have to learn parts of the cats muscles, digestive system, respiratory system, endocrine system, and the nervous system. Students were able to touch and hold parts of the cadaver to examine them and get a great hands on experience of what class will be like in college.

COFFEE! 

Schmooze the right people. 

Find a good woman to date.

Beauty and "brains" certainly don't hurt.  

Be a team player or you may fall back down the ladder. 

Will "Big Red" Lewis has been named the MVP of the 6th Annual Farm Team Classic. A tournament in which only wooden bats are allowed to be used by the players. The PWHS Senators JV team pulled off a win yesterday, May 8, against Northwest, with help from two hits by Big Red that eventually ended with runs scored. Our MVP got not only one, but his first two hits in his baseball career ever! Congratulations to Will and the Senators.
