    Students Hear From Dr. Chuck Wellman ’68 at Cum Laude Ceremony

    On Tuesday morning, 15 members of the senior class were inducted into the Cum Laude Society. After Mrs. Kenny and Mr. Ryzner presented them with their certificates and Cum Laude pins, all were treated to remarks from Dr. Chuck Wellman '68, who recently retired as the medical director of Hospice of the Western Reserve.

    In addressing the students, Dr. Wellman shared the three lessons he imparted on all his medical students and young residents: Be curious (never stop asking questions). Be quiet (listen to those around you and you’ll be amazed at what you learn). Be kind (to others and to the environment). His words should serve as guideposts for our students for many years to come. Thank you, Dr. Wellman!

  • Mr. Overman shares experience with The Lance at conference at Columbia

    Recognizing the success of The Lance in the Columbia Scholastic Press Association’s (CSPA) competition (the publication received a gold medal and journalist Zack Komoroski '19 earned an individual honorable mention in the Nonfiction Interview category), John Overman, moderator for The Lance, was invited to present at the CSPA’s conference over spring break. He spoke about the incredible benefits for students who publish online.

    He explained that young journalists can build an online portfolio for themselves that can showcase their skills and abilities. Here's an example of Kathy Jung's '18 portfolio she built during her time writing for The Lance. Any college board and future employer can easily access student work published online. He also talked about how online writing allows for hyperlinks that can be used to connect readers to related materials, including expert sources. He shared that students can reach the world through their communities when they publish online. Inviting his audience into The Lance, he used three articles as examples - one about Pinecrest written by Gracie Bujoll '19, one by Charlie Xie '20 about why everyone should participate in Model UN and one by Angela Liu '20 about the solutions that exist for climate change and global warming. Finally, he talked about how instructors can combine print and broadcast instruction by flipping the classroom, something he calls “Write by Night, Film by Day,” which allows his students to make daily use of our studio for news broadcasting. For articles, the planning, interviewing, drafting and finalizing for online print publication can happen outside of class. Mr. Overman explained to his audience that his ultimate hope is for all this to help our students tell the Gilmour story through student journalism.
