Mandy Hof elt Chosen For Governor's School ByMarcyMermel Honors were bestowed on Huntingdon Area High School students Mandy Hofelt and Anthony Ciccarelli recently by the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts. Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Hofelt. Mandy was selected in theater tor the 1981 school, one of only 245 chosen from 2500 applicants because budget cuts decreased the number of students on full scholarships. What is even more unusual is Mandy's selection after only two years of dramatic experience. July 12-August 15 She will attend Governor's School at Bucknell University July 12 to August 15, A 1980 student in animation, Anthony won the' annual "Sharing the Arts" award for outstanding community service following a summer at PGSA. One male and one female were picked from the 326 members of the PGSA class of 1980 based on 1 a follow up study made by the school. The study is an important part of PGSA since it proves to the state government that what'is learned at the school does not stop when it's over. The Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Arts is a five week program that gives high school sophomores and juniors intense study in the arts, the students chosen are seriously involved in one of . the following art forms: art, i creative writing, dance, music, photographic arts (animation and film) and theater. Teachers who are themselves artists guide the students, enhancing their strengths and helping to overcome their weaknesses. Anthony, in an interview, remarked that the exposure to the different styles of his teachers and classmates "brought out elements of my artistic style." Impressive List The list of activities mentioned in the follow - up study that led to Anthony's award is Teenagers, Know Your Adult Rights By Patty Buckley Since most of the seniors at Tussey Mountain High School are 18, they have new rights and new responsibilities • dealing with the law and everyday living. In the eyes of the law a person is an adult when he reaches the age of 18. Most 18 year - old teenagers do not realize that laws concerning them are different. Minors, by law, are under their parents control and they have the duty to obey their parents. Parents have the right to support, educate and protect their child. Once a minor reaches adulthood, they are free from their parents control. Adults have the right to manage their own financial affairs. As a minor a person does not have the right, an adult must cosign for him. Another advantage is that an 18 - year • old has the right to vote. Also, if a minor commits a crime he is considered a deliquent and is taken before the juvenile court. This special court is geared towards rehabilitation rather than punishment. On the other hand, an adult receives a harsher sentence after a more formal trial. Adults may consider leaving home, once they graduate. They have this right, by law, to leave home. One type of housing, after he chooses to leave home, would be an apartment. As adults, some seniors preparing for college or a business school, must consider housing if they are not commuting. Some of the things to look for when renting an apartment are how routine and emergency maintenance are handled. Are hallways, lobbies and common areas, clean and well-lighted? Also in finding an apartment, a person must consider the kind of lease he wants. If a senior is planning to attend a short - term business school, he must consider a month • to month lease, which enables hint to leave after a 30 days notice. Other leases are for longer time periods, such as a year lease. A student planning on attending a four - year college might consider this typSQl lease, Seniors planning to start work alter graduation must know SQrae laws regarding work, (or instance, the fljinirauffl wage {or anyone, whj&er a minor or an adult, is ,j>, II anyone works over <W rs $ week, he niust be paJ4 and a half times tfee worniai bwrly ws$e for extra "Congratulations, HAHS! This T-shirt is special, and so are Mandy Hofelt and Anthony Ciccarelli, students at HAHS. Both are associated with the prestigious Governor's School for the Arts program. The 1980 Shirt, designed by a PGSA student, features the PGSA letters at the top and each of the spokes of the spiral reads 1980. (Editor's Note: This photo feature story was written by another 1980 PGSA alum, Marcy Mermel. Her parents are Dr. and Mrs. Lewis Mermel.) impressive. Since returning from PGSA, he has served as co - editor - in - chief of the Argus (yearbook) and art editor of the Newsreal (newspaper). As an art aide, he has passed on the techniques he's learned. Anthony has illustrated giant get - well and birthday cards for HAHS teachers and students, School Page articles, and programs for basketball and wrestling. Anthony will leave his' mark on HAHS with a mural he is painting in the universal gym. Mandy has been interested in theater for as long as she can remember, but did not have the opportunity to act until high school. She has appeared in plays at HAHS and at. Juniala College. She expressed surprise at being accepted, especially because she is only a sophomore. Also Dancing, Music In addition to drama, Mandy's involvement in the arts spans dancing (she takes classes in ballet, jazz and. aerobics) and music (she plays bells and sings). To apply for PGSA, Manmade a video tape. Intermediate Unit 11 screened the applicants, and Mandy was among those chosen to audition at one of the six sites across the state. Her audition in Harrisburg consisted of improvisations and a rehearsed segment. Mandy displayed her talent for British accents in a scene from the English play "Joe Egg." Mandy hopes her summer at PGSA gives her good acting techniques and good friends. For the future Mandy says, "I'm very interested in acting, although at this point, I'm not sure what 1 want to do." At Penn State Anthony's future will include art. He is looking for a "blend of math, science and art," and will attend the Pennsylvania State University for art or architectural engineering. Along with a major art field, each PGSA "govie" takes classes in a second field. Students are able to show their talents in various shows and informal weekly coffeehouses. Asked if he has any advice for Mandy, Anthony replied, "Make'the most of your experience there, because it's a once - in - a • lifetime chance to improve your artistic abilities." Anthony's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Ciccarelli. DE Students Raise $1,100 In Sale 'Mary Grace-You Are Missed At HA!' By Vicki Miller There's no question about it. When distributive education students from Huntingdon Area High School wanted to help one of their fellow classmates, they made their plans, followed through with hard work and dedication and made their project a huge success! In order to raise money for Mary Grace McLaughlin and her family, the DE students decided to have a ham and cheese sandwich sale. A grand total of $1,100 was collected by this energetic 45 member group. Angle Hess was recognized for selling the greatest number of sandwiches; she accumulated over $200, "Everyone gave up Saturday morning to help out for a good cause," commented Arty Eriksen. Mary Grace, who was injured in an accident- three months ago, is now recovering. Her brother, Hal McLaughlin, explained that she has been transferred from the Hershey Medical Center to EUzabethtown • Children's Hospital, and that she is responding wll to therapy. The McLaughlin family is happy that Mary Grace is able to come home to visit on the weekends. Many students involved in the fund - raiser gave their warmest sentiments. in speaking of the McLaughlin family, Rick McMahon said, "These are a great bunch of people and we went to show Mary Grace that we love her and want to help her in any way we can." Cindy Ruble remarked, "I care for Mary Grace a great deal, and anything 1 could ever do to help her. I certainly would cty." "I know that money cin't buy life or love, but it can ease the discomforts of a tragedy,"added Jon Smith, Keith Harris made hte p.ojnt when be stated, "H'6 nice that we have someone at Huntingdon Area High School who Is. willing & take the tlaje and effort $ snafce woney (or wraeonj? to aseji si U.

V > ^' l» V,,M ^< i r ByR«n*eG*hlb«ch It is hard to say what my feelings are as f approach graduation from fussey Mountain High School. 1 am glad that I am graduating, but 1 am not sure what lies beyond. 1 am not sure whether 1 want to know. I'm not alone, though. Many high school seniors feel this way just before graduation. ' it seems only yesterday that parents were taking us (the children who are now known as the class of 1981) to kindergarten. Was 1968 that long ago? 1 can still see myself In kindergarten, learning to whistle when i should be resting, or crying when my best friend from fourth grade moved to Greece. It Was not that long ago when 1 started to play the clarinet and joined the band. ' Commencement will be the last of our list of school day memories at Tussey Mountain. It will also be the first Step into the rest of our lives. For many of us, it is a step straight from the classroom to on the job training in one occupation or another. For others of us, it is a step from classroom to classroom as we advance our education in a trade school, business school or college. For still others of us, the steps into marriage and parenthood will follow closely upon the steps we will take across the commencement platform on June 4, when we receive our diplomas. We may seem reluctant to leave the security that the high school can provide, along with the friends that we have made in the other students and the faculty. But there is a hidden anxiety to get started and join those who have gone before us, as newcomers to the outside world. Guide us, for we may stray from the path of life. Help us, for we may heed a'push to begin again in situations that are new to us. Accept us, remembering all the things you went through to get where you are today. : !••• ,Tfme, Effort rge ftairibow Glows For Southern Prom School News Paige In Students Attire And Gym HAPromNight- Transformation ByAnneSwigart Tonight is the night! Jeans give way to tuxedos and gowns; sandals and dress shoes replace Nikes and Bass. It's the 1981 prom at Huntingdon Area High School that has caused this transformation. The gym at HAHS will also be dressed up. The theme and decorations of the prom are always kept a secret until the special night arrives. Some students have spotted a few decorations in,the making, but no one except the decorating committee knows tne"overall theme. Because the HAHS gym must be used by physical education classes until just a few days before the prom, it takes a lot of workers to bring about a look of fantasy quickly. Over 50 juniors, as well as some seniors, have taken part in this project. The junior class traditionally hosts the seniors on prom night; so the former group provides the majority of the workers. These people worked Wednesday, Thursday By Molly Peterson, "And the King and Queen of this year's Junior - senior Prom 1 are. .-, .Jeff Brown and Betsy Wright." Emcee Todd Cornelius made this announcement to niariy eager students at Southern Huntingdon County High School this past Friday night, as Pamela Metntni sang the theme song of the prom "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." : Decorations " Colorful decorations adorned the gymnasium with the main attraction being the . large rainbow which occupied 'the middle of the floor. This rainbow was illuminated with two small lights in either end and surrounded, by angel's hair, tissue paper flowers and small shrubbery. Multi -, colored streamers and balls were also used to enhance and reflect the meaning of the theme. Drawings were designed, painted and placed so as to occupy larger portions of the surrounding walls. Snooks • Studio (photographing company for the, SHC yearbooks) sent a representative / who photographed many couples. The back - drop for these, pictures was a three • dimensional rainbow which was designed by the creative mqmbers of the prom committee, this,was painted with bright colors and gave the impression of the "happy coule" standing on the end of the rainbow. Music was provided by "Starship Enterprise." The many flashing lights caused tiny rainbows which reflected from the silver "raindrops" suspended from the ceiling. Prom Court Betsy Wright, queen of the Prom, is the daughter of Glenn and Lilius Wright of Cassville. She is a senior at SHC enrolled in the academic section. She has participated in concert band, Photography Club, girls' track, and was head majorette for this year's senior high marching band. Crowned King of the Prom was Jeff Brown. He is the son Find Golden Treasure Queen Betsy Wright and King Jeff Brown found a golden' treasure at the end of the prom rainbow — the honor of being chosen to rule the court at the last dance of their high school years. N of Richard and Burnis Brown of Star Route, Orbisonia.. His school activities include boys' track, yearbook and "Flash Staff," Varsity Club and arts electives. He is also a member of the senior class and is in the academic section. Jeff is noted for his artistic talent. A sophomore couple was chosen to crown the king and queen: Karla Madden and Bobby Mansberger.

The formal prom may have been the main event of the evening, but an afterprom was held at the Orbisonia Rockhill Fire Hall sponsored by the Ladies' Auxiliary. For many juniors, this year's prom means work, time and effort. For the seniors, it represents the last dance to-attend at SHC. For them, "the prom is over," but not in their memories. For an evening at least, many enjoyed a brief glimpse "over the rainbow." 'Blues" decorations one feature isn't. The seniors have chosen by vote a Prom Court whose members will reign over the evening's festivities. The selected girls are Cathy Garner, Valerie Heart, Ann Terrizzi and Phyllis Yoder. A lucky one from among them will be crowed Prom Queen. The work and care put into this year's prom seem to add up to success. The traditional events will always be remembered by the seniors as a special night. Band Director Marks 25 Years At Southern job," commented fcvan Horton, distributive education instructor. Horton also thanked Feagley's Market for help with supplies, and everyone in the community who donated money toward this project. It Is hard to find words to describe how much someone is missed, but these supportive students have proved that strong bonds between classmates are never broken at HAHS.

Also, at Penn State, Mr. Dandrea was an active member of the Phi Mu Alpha dance band. "Vin," as he is known to his close friends, was a musician in the Altoona Symphony Orchestra.

Chairman goober urge; all to turn in VERINO DANDREA 1972 with J. Richard Burkholder as the director. Mr. Dandrea can boast the fact he was, and still is, one of the few "original" members. He has also been president of this highly - esteemed group. When not performing with the Big Band Sound, he displays his talent in yet another dance combo entitled, "Four He's and a She." Teaching The task of putting together a musical group is almost insurmountable. It is Mr. Dandrea's responsbility to work with both the junior and senior high bands. Each band has a marching and a concert band season. ' Mr. Dandrea takes on the job of teaching the drills to the student musicians. Every year, it seems, that the drills become more involved. The students seem to get aggravated but Mr. Pandrea never seems to become angry or run out of patience. He talks about when he was learning to march and play at the same time. This makes the musicians take it "all in stride." After inarching season comes to, an end concert time has arrived. Concert band is held during school and after school. song for over 10 years. It is also his duty to instruct the "elementary" musicians at the Rockhill and Shade Gap elementary schools. Those future high school musicians are in grades 5 and 6. "It's never too young to start learning!" That is a true statement by which Mr. Dandrea can abide. He began playing the clarinet at the young age of seven. Time To Relax In his spare time, Mr. Dandrea likes to read and collect smoking tobacco pipes. He and his wife, Mary Lou, are both "Civil War buffs" and enjoy traveling to historic sights. His family means a lot to him. His family consists of two sons, Tom and John and three daughters, Carol, Janine and the "little one of the family," Grace. The title of "Grandpa" can now be bestowed upon Mr. Dandrea. His daughter has just recently given'birth to a beautiful baby girl. Music also has a place in his spare time. Mr, Dandrea gives private sax and clarinet lessons. "Fine Example" The time, patience and dedication put forth by Mr. Dandrea is a fine example of bow a person works to create . the best possible result. Students, faculty and administration at SHC would wish Mr. Dandrea continued musical success and a long teaching career at Southern Huntingdon. Happy .Anniversary, Verino! Perhaps the group Mr. Pandrea has a keen liking lor is the high school jazz band named Space Shuttle, of which be is the "father."
