Four LuHi students directed one-act plays this year as part of our LuHi Theatre showcase. If you missed last week's post about Kaden's original play, read it here. This week, we hear from two other students who directed one-acts: Addie Eloe and Kendall Savage. Read more about their experience as directors below!
Our Theatre Department has a longstanding tradition of student-directed one-act performances each fall semester. This year 4 seniors, Ben Sparling, Kaden Groce, Addie Eloe, and Kendall Savage, took on the challenge of directing one-act plays. Kaden Groce took on the challenge of writing his own one-act plus an original song to go with it. Let's dive in to learn more about Kaden's process.
Earlier this semester, Haley Looney was surprised to see Commander Baldwin in the gym during Chapel. She had met the Commander a few weeks prior when she was interviewing for an elite ROTC scholarship. That morning, Commander Baldwin presented Haley with the ROTC Immediate Scholarship Reservation. She shares how she felt in that moment, "I had no idea he was coming; it completely surprised me. I saw he had a big check, and my first thought was, I wonder who it's for?" When she saw her dad crying in the wings of the gym, it started to sink in the check was for her!
This past summer, the LuHi Art Academy spent weeks working on a new mural as part of the Paint Parker Mural Program. This is the third mural LuHi students have done in collaboration with the town to beautify our community. Mr. Hollenbeck, a group of thirteen students, plus a handful of parents and LuHi alumni, worked for weeks brainstorming, planning, and painting the Cave of Won-Doors mural found at Kieffer's Crossing Tunnel at the intersection of Parker Road and Mainstreet.

When everyone is a winner, the valuable lessons gained from healthy competition can be lost. While it is good to help everyone feel like a success, and a valued member of society, our school, or our church, competition can be a good thing, too. It can shape you into a confident, resilient person who remembers where worth actually comes from - God’s love for us. Competition is everywhere, including school, sports and the professional world. We have to compete in order to get into college or land a great job. If everyone's a winner all the time, we don’t have a chance to gain experience in what it’s like to lose gracefully, grow from experiences and move on with self-esteem intact. In this article, we explore 5 important values of competition, and how they actually serve to build character more than participation trophies.
By now you’ve probably compiled your summer fun list. Two and a half months can seem too short, but this is one unique summer. You might find yourself with more time on your hands, or you might be recovering with the rest of the world from the darkness of the last four months.

What is Access?
Access enables and bolsters the success of every Lutheran High School student with a learning difference, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), or other diagnoses, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In this study-hall-style class, eligible students receive individualized attention and instruction specific to their unique needs. While in Access, students can work on school assignments, study for tests, connect with teachers, and work on strategies to address school-related issues, such as organization, time management, communication, and study skills. And throughout the Access period, the teacher is there for students, with regular check-ins to ensure follow through, troubleshooting, and overall support.
