Centerville HS graduates By JODI MILBURN Times Editor FAIRBORN — Hundreds of proud parents, relatives, community members along with Centerville High School staff members were on hand Saturday, June 2 at the Nutter Center to see Centerville High School Class of 2012 seniors accept their diplomas. Before the seniors proceeded to their seats, Centerville High School Jazz Band senior members Jimmy Albrecht, Michael Bale, Stephen Forster, and Zana Karabatak performed the pieces “Allegro” and “Russian Sailor’s Dance.” Once seniors were seated, Class of 2012 Vice President Manoj

Ambalavanan and Cabinet member Rajiv Karani welcomed seniors and those attending, offering laughs in their speech titled, “It’s Actually the End.” Both believed the Class of 2012 has debunked theories that the world is coming to the end. Both encouraged seniors to look at everything they have, appreciate it, and believe that they have the potential to change lives. Senior Jensen Pennock sang the National Anthem, while a group of seniors including Anna Castro, Staci Gibbs, Michael Hale, Claire Heckman, Elizabeth Hull, Emmy Mays, Sara Sisco, and Morgan Supensky offered a signing of the anthem. In her “Plan B” speech, Class of 2012 Cabinet member Elizabeth Hull reminded seniors that they must be

prepared for obstacles. “Life is all about how you handle Plan B,” said Hull. Centerville City Schools Superintendent Dr. Tom Henderson greeted the Class of 2012 by congratulating them on achieving this milestone. He quoted the great boxer Muhammad Ali by reminding the class that “champions are not made in the gym.” He asked seniors to think success not failure and to not be afraid to get started. “I believe all of you have the desire to be a champion,” said Henderson. Henderson hoped seniors would always do the right thing, even if it was not the popular choice. Class of 2012 President Alex Hopkins quoted Dr. Seuss’ famous

book, “You’ll Move Mountains.” Hopkins told seniors that he believed they have the tools to succeed. “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened,” said Hopkins. Class of 2012 Cabinet member Stephen Shan provided a speech entitled, “A Walk to Remember.” Shan pointed out to class members how they miraculously got through their senior year without a snow day. While Shan was informing seniors about how they should soak in the moment, to remember all of the good times they shared together, the beach balls came out. As quickly as they bounced in the air to senior after senior, they were quickly deflated by

Centerville Schools move forward with operating levy request CENTERVILLE — The Centerville City Schools Board of Education unanimously voted this week to move forward with placing a 5.9 mill operating levy on the Nov. 2012 ballot. Levy proceeds would sustain district operations for at least the next three fiscal years and fund the district’s operations for teachers, textbooks, technology, and day-to-day operations. “We proactively reacted to cuts in state funding and to losses in property tax revenue by doing a number of things, including reducing staff positions and eliminating nearly $11 million dollars from our budget since 2009,” stated Dr. Tom Henderson, superintendent of Centerville City Schools. Centerville lost nearly $7 million in state funding alone in fiscal year 2012 and is bracing for more. In addition, local revenue from property tax collections has fallen. To help overcome these financial losses the Centerville City Schools staff has

shared in the sacrifice, accepting a twoyear salary freeze on base pay (through the 2012-13 school year). “We take pride in our educationally sound school system, and our goal with this levy request is to preserve and protect the quality of Centerville schools,” stated Brad Evers, board president. “Passage of this November levy will not provide us with money to spend on frills and new programs; it will simply fund the day to day operations of our schools, as we operate now, after severe State funding cuts.” Evers noted that Centerville’s outstanding and dedicated teachers are essential to the future of the schools. “Hiring and retaining the finest teachers has always been a top priority for us. We can’t lose that. Our teachers have sacrificed and in November voters will have the opportunity to speak out for continued student and teacher excellence. We want to honestly engage the community to explain what revenue we receive, how

that money is spent and to better understand what our citizens want from their schools.” Centerville’s work on providing strong educational programming and quality teachers shows in high student achievement and success in state-mandated testing. In fact, Centerville spends a greater portion of their operating budget on the classroom for students than any area school district in the Miami Valley. In addition, Centerville spends the second lowest percentage of costs on administration in the entire State of Ohio. The 5.9 mill levy, if passed in November 2012, would not collect until January 2013. If the levy does not pass, the district would have to enact further cuts to programs and services. “The best way to keep dollars local is to support our schools and community through issues that hit to the quality of life that we value here,” commented Henderson.

Executive change of command at Hannah’s Treasure Chest CENTERVILLE — After more than a decade of building Hannah’s Treasure Chest into a well-known force in the service of Miami Valley, Angela Addington is retiring as executive director. Her successor, Sarah Williams, has been in training for the past six months in the position of assistant executive director and takes over Friday, June 1. Williams, former associate executive director at the Dayton Christian Center, is a 2004 graduate of Wright State University’s Urban Affairs and Nonprofit Leadership Alliance programs. Williams has also attended additional leadership training through Edison Community College’s Graduate Academy for Community Leaders. “I feel very fortunate being handpicked to continue Angela’s dream of enriching the lives of children in need at Hannah’s.” Williams said. “I’ve got some pretty big shoes to fill by following the founder of the organization, but I’m ready for the challenge.” Founder Angela Addington will continue to serve at Hannah’s Treasure Chest by appearing on behalf of the organization at fundraising and speaking events and will remain involved in the organization’s well-known Giving Angels program. “Hannah’s will always be special to me, but it’s time for someone else to take the reins. My next adventure will surely tie into Hannah’s,” Addington stated. “Sarah is a strong leader and visionary. Her plans for the future of Hannah’s Treasure Chest are inspiring.” Stuart Merl, Chairman of Hannah’s

Angela Addington

Board noted, “The Board is honored to be supporting this great and giving organization founded by Angela. We wish Angela well in her future endeavors and have the utmost confidence in Sarah’s ability to continue to grow our mission by assisting even more children in the years to come.” Founded in 2000, Hannah’s Treasure Chest is named for Addington’s daughter born the same year. The organization, located at 124 Westpark Road in Centerville, enriches the lives of children by providing clothing, toys, books, and other essential items through

partnerships with area agencies in four counties. Other vital programs include: Brighter Smiles, Beds for Babies and Giving Angels. Since its inception, the organization has provided more than 7,000 children with clothing, toys and books, processing an average of 350,000 items per year. Demand for these essential supplies has grown at a steady average of 47 percent per year. For more information about Hannah’s Treasure Chest, call the office at 937438-5039 or visit

Stop reading! Go to Hithergreen’s garage sale now! t’s Thursday, June 7. What are you doing reading the newspaper? You should be shopping at the Hithergreen Annual Garage Sale that runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. today and 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. tomorrow. Those who have attended the sale in the past are probably already at the center rooting through the thousands of items that are packed into our gymnasium, auditorium, hallways and meeting rooms. For those who haven’t been to the sale, you don’t know what you are missing. So let me tell you… Our garage sale became an annual event in 1995, right after we moved to Hithergreen and had the space to hold an event of this magnitude. Since that first sale, Betty Kelemen has been volunteer co-chair of our Garage Sale Team that now includes Misty Cornelius, Carol DePasquale, Jean Pauzer, Betty Risner and, until recently, Karl Henkels. A few months before each sale they call in reinforcements Nancy Prass, Carol Smith, Nancy Vergamini, Carolyn Wimer and Betty’s husband, Joe, and huddle in garage sale central an unused gym locker room - cleaning, sorting and pricing thousands of items. Let me repeat…THOUSANDS OF ITEMS! Thanks to this group, and hundreds of other volunteers, our garage sale is now known as one of the largest, cleanest and best organized in the area. Items are displayed by “department:” appliances and electronics, books and videos, crafts and fabric, glassware and kitchenware, toys and puzzles, holiday and seasonal - you get the idea. There is even a new item section, a separate room for antiques and collectibles, and an attractive display of jewelry. Last year, right before we opened the doors to a long line of people waiting for the sale to begin, Betty Risner looked around and said, “I can’t believe we’ve touched all this stuff… some of it more than once!” You’d understand her comment if you’ve ever seen how much is in the sale. Enough to raise almost $10,000 for the center, which is a lot of nickel and


dime items going out the Cynthia door for Fraley someone to eventually Adventures brag to their in Aging friends, “Look what they were practically giving away at Hithergreen!” Fortunately for us, our Garage Sale Team love to spend hours and hours going through other people’s “junk” and finding the treasures, like a valuable antique or piece of jewelry. But they are quick to joke about their unexpected finds, like the great butter dish with the butter still inside and the prescription bottle for Viagra hidden in a purse. Those little gems are what keep them sifting through boxes and boxes of donations - that and the close friendships they have developed with each other. You’ll often find them sharing a meal together at a local restaurant, after shaking off the dust that accumulates after a hard day’s work on the garage sale. While this core group puts in a tremendous amount of work all through the year, the sale would not be the success it is without all the donations we receive from members (many are downsizing and getting rid of great stuff they no longer have room to keep) and the 135+ volunteers that give 1,000+ hours of service each year organizing and setting up the sale; serving as cashiers, floor walkers and department heads during the sale; and cleaning it all up after the sale is over. You might wonder how we keep a sale this big from chaos. First is years of practice. Second is volunteer Doris Speyer. She is the unsung hero behind the sale who takes stacks of individual volunteer forms listing work preferences, schedules each volunteer for one or more work assignments, contacts each one about their assignments, checks them in on the days of the sale and then tabulates all their hours. A herculean task that comes off with-

To say the sale could be pandemonium without her is not an understatement. As if a gigantic garage sale alone is not enough, the event includes a mouthwatering bake sale led by our Culinary Crafters - Pam Adams, Mary Borns, Kathryn Koehler, Jean Pauzar, Kathee Pennington, Linda Spears and Mary Warbutton (they’ll be highlighted in a future column) - and a tasty lunch that is sponsored this year by Otterbein Springboro. Raising money is an integral part in the life of a non-profit organization like Hithergreen Center but we try to create “Fun-Raisers:” from our recent Golf Outing to our fall

Spaghetti Dinner, to our winter Holiday Bazaar and now our Garage Sale. And, what could be more fun than finding a great treasure or two while snacking on a homemade sandwich or sweet treat? So, what are you doing still reading the newspaper? You better head over to Hithergreen now or you forfeit all bragging rights to the next great find at our Annual Garage Sale! The mission of Hithergreen Center is to enrich the lives of older adults in our community. For more information visit or call 435-2415. Cynthi Fraley is executive director of Hithergreen Center.

Submitted photos Third graders at Stingley Elementary recently created a unique replica of the Walton House Museum.

Artistic third graders create a Walton House replica Lindsey Hull, the art instructor at Stingley Elementary School, and her third grade art students surprised the Centerville Washington Twp. Historical Society by constructing a replica of the Walton House Museum, which will soon be on display at the Asahel Wright House, 26 N. Main St. Stop in Tuesday-Friday, 12-4 p.m. or during the Americana Festival to enjoy it. Read on to learn about how enriching this experience proved to be for Lindsey and her students: Q. Where did this idea come from? A. Michele Mulenkamp, one of the third grade teachers at Stingley, approached me about creating our own version of the Walton House. The third graders were getting ready to study Centerville History and they were taking a field trip to the Walton House Museum. I took her idea and ran with it. Q. How were the stones made? A. We investigated limestone and its role in Centerville history. The students were quick to discover that real limestone would be too heavy for our cardboard structure. They chose to make homemade paper to look like the stones, which (conveniently) incorporated learning a new form of art - papermaking. Q. How long did this project take? A. This project took about a month to complete. I had a few students help with the main structure (using donated materials from parents). Each student participated during their class time in creating paper limestone, putting shingles on the roof, painting the doors and windows, and creating details for our house. I set up centers around the room for each job. The students knew what they needed to do, and they did a phenomenal job of following my direction while sharing their ideas along the way. The window boxes and windows are one of my favorite

parts of our Walton House. The students were so excited to share everything they saw and noticed while they were on their field trip. They made sure we didn’t forget the window boxes. I asked them to think about what you may see looking into the windows of the Walton House from the outside. A few students quickly reminded me that there was no electricity in the 1800’s. This brought on a great conversation about how they would have light and what an important role candles played in the daily lives of Pioneer’s. If you look at the house, you will notice that every window now has a candle in it. The two doors are also very important (and distinctive) features. About five students worked on the doors spending a great deal of time looking at photographs to make sure they had the details correct. I loved observing the students problem solve to get the details right- placing lines in the right places, proportion, color mixing, etc. These are all concepts we had been discussing in art and I was able to watch them apply them to their creation on their own. I could not have been more proud! Q. Can you imagine doing a similar project in the future? A. Yes, the students are so proud of their creation and have started asking me what historical Centerville building we can make next year, and each year after that. This project was a great way to help bring history to life and give the students an appreciation for the real Walton House and the history of Centerville. The Historical Society would like to thank the students of Stingley Elementary who worked as a team to build this replica of the Walton House Museum, much like the many people who work hard to preserve our buildings and our history today. It appears that you enjoyed your visit and that you learned so

much. Thanks also go out to the Stingley parents, the Third Grade team, Miss Hull and Mrs. Keller for facilitating the tour, the project and for sharing the story. The Mission of the Centerville Washington Township Historical Society is to connect the community to its heritage by collecting, preserving, interpreting and promoting the history of our local area.

McCoy’s finish was the third best performance at the State Meet in Centerville High School’s history and earned him a trip to the podium and All-State honors. “My goal was definitely just to find a way on that podium,” said McCoy. “This is a great way to end my high school career and now I can say I didn’t miss my graduation for nothing.” “I am so pleased that we had two individuals and the 4x800 relay team earn All-State honors,” said Somerlot. “Overall, it was an awesome season and one that I will always remember for how our team rallied around each other and stuck together.” On the girls side, Centerville sophomore Sydney Kay cleared 10-06 to claim 13th place in her second straight trip to the State Championships.

COLUMBUS — In the final stage of this year’s track and field season, Centerville qualified nine athletes to compete in 4 events at the OHSAA State Track and Field Championships held this past weekend at The Ohio State University’s Jessie Owens Memorial Stadium. The 4x800-meter relay was the first event to take to the track in the Division I competition on Friday evening. Senior Dan McCoy led off the relay for the Elks passing the baton to junior Garrett Morrison, followed by sophomore Caleb Andreason, then brought home by junior Josh Steible. The relay team crossed the finish line in seventh place with a time of 7 minutes, 54.61 seconds, earning them a trip to the podium and well-deserved AllState honors. “The 4x800 was seeded 12th coming into State,” stated Centerville boys head coach Matt Somerlot. “They ran their plan to perfection and raced the best they have all season.”
