Dereck has been attending Rich Hill since kindergarten. He likes to play his guitar and hang out with his friends in his spare time. He played football and baseball for 2 years. Dereck is excited to graduate and move to Springfield and attend OTC (Ozark Technical College). He would like to get a degree in Culinary Arts. He plans to work on the side to help pay for his schooling. In ten years he sees himself living in Joplin and working somewhere with his degree.
All-Conference Band was held yesterday in Adrian. Seventeen of Rich Hill’s band students attended this event. They played Appalachian Morning, Afterburn, Fanfare for a New Age, Aliens Landing (In Your Back Yard), American Heritage March, and Each Time You Tell Their Story. The students really like Aliens Landing and Afterburn! You will get to hear one of these pieces at Rich Hill Music Department Spring Concert, May 6th, 2013!
Hope that everyone is using a pencil to keep track of the dates for spring sports!
