CENTRAL YORK HIGH SCHOOL
2011 Senior Scoops
It’s time to hit the road running, seniors. High school is done and your futures are within sight. Whether you are heading off to college, going into an ROTC program, traveling the world or staying close to home, we want to thank you for your time, energy and spirit that you have brought to Central these past four years. We dedicate this to you all, our last paper for this year, and to say ‘good luck in all that you do and that you all will be greatly missed.’ ~ The Prowler Staff
Beach takes his talents to Rochester by Zach Sheffer STAFF WRITER
Senior says she isn’t afraid to show who she is
Matt Beach, a senior at Central York High School, has excelled in advanced science and mathematics all throughout his high school career. Matt Beach says two favorite classes are Advance Placement Calculus and Advanced Placement Chemistry. Beach said that AP Chemistry a n d
AP Calculus were the most beneficial of all of his high school courses. Beach also took Honors Physics Modern, Honors Physics Mechanics, Dual Enrollment Psychology, as well as an internship with CYHS science teacher Matt Williams. Beach said that AP Calculus was his favorite class this year because he enjoys math and the other students in the class. He has had many great teachers during his years at CYHS. Beach said that one of his favorite teachers is his math

She is a geek of many trades. Theater, internet and is a geek of speech and debates. Senior Rebecca Lease is a self-professed geek, a label she embraces to the extent of doing a sevenminute speech on the subject. The art of being a geek is identical to the art of being passionate. As stated by Lease: “We’re all geeks about something. Let your geek flag fly!” Students may recognize Lease and her red eyeglasses from one of the shows she’s participated in since November 2009. She has been in one show since then, barring a two-month hiatus, which she described as miserable. “I get legit confused when I don’t have rehearsal. I’ll tell people that I can’t do things because I have rehearsal-and then I

Lease has dreams of being a mix of her favorite English teachers. One teacher she admires and has had for two years is Lisa Sands. Sands said that she recalls a significant memory of Lease in her classroom one year. “I’ll never forgetone of our first activities, when I ask students to tell me something that is unique to you and will help me re-
member you for who you are. We get to Becca and she says, ‘My name is Rebecca Lease and I have Aspergers.’” “Having Aspergers is like living in York County. You can make fun of York if you live here but anyone else makes a joke about it and you’re forced to protect it,” said Lease. Even when faced with a syndrome that affects mainly social skills, she makes a point to take hold of this element of hers and own it. “Do I respect that she’s proud of who she is and
doesn’t care? Absolutely. At the end of the day, Becca is okay with who she is,” said Sands about the confidence that is characteristic of Lease. Sands had Lease for a student in Honors English III and currently has her in Yearbook. One thing Lease brings to Sands’ classroom is the element of controversy. Lease says that she likes that idea of bringing up new ideas and making connections from one area of culture to another. The thing about her long-winded comments and speeches, whether made for
Having a dream to be in the Naval Academy, Alex Greene turns to support from his family to keep him going. (*Courtesy Photo)
by Holly Michaels STAFF WRITER
Alex Greene remembers the day he decided he wanted to go to the Naval Academy. It was 9/11. Greene’s mother and brother both have served and Greene says, “I felt that it was just my responsibility to defend the freedoms we have as Americans.” With hopes of still attending college, Greene hasn’t given up on his dream of being part of the Naval Academy. Greene spent his high school career preparing for the “prestigious” school he wishes to get into and said he plans on doing so even with obstacles in the road. To be accepted to the Naval Academy, a student must have a nomination from a senator or congressman, pass a medical examination, be in the top ten percent of the class, and show strong moral character and leadership skills. He spent his four years at Central York High School in marching band, Student Council, playing tennis, soccer and participating in other activities. He has shown leadership through being in Student Council, treasurer for
National Honor Society and drill captain for Central’s band. Despite his many activities, Greene said they don’t overwhelm him. “They kind of just pass the baton off to the next thing.” Along with his school activities Greene spent time talking with former Central student, Patrick Lyons who
went through the process of getting accepted in the Naval Academy last year. Greene was doing well until his medical examination from the Department of Defense Medical Examination Review Board. Greene’s left eye does not
have the 20-20 vision required to pass the examination. “Initially I was really disappointed,” Greene said. Just a week after learning he failed his medical examination, Greene learned about eye therapy that could potentially help improve his vision. “They can’t guarantee anything because they say once you’re older than
twelve your vision can’t improve. But I’ve seen improvements since I started in December.” Once a week, Greene travels to Dallastown where they give him 30 minute activities to strengthen his eye. He is going to use
his Naval Reserves Officer Scholarship to help pay for college. “You have to be in the navy for five years and they pay for tuition, books, the whole shabang. Then I’ll reapply to the Naval Academy.” Greene says he’s so set on the Naval Academy because there are certain experiences he can’t get anywhere else. Greene’s mother, Sharon Donley, said, “Alex has been inspired to enter the military through his family. Alex has an older brother who is currently serving in Afghanistan.” “But I believe he wants to go into the Navy to follow in my footsteps, as I served in the Navy during Desert Storm in the sands of Saudi Arabia.” Donley said that she always encouraged her children on to go into the Naval Academy. “The seed was planted, and I just kept watering and fertilizing it.” Without a military background, Greene says he can’t be too involved with serving the country but that he’s always been supportive of his family. Greene has also found support from his father. “I have a bet with him, when I get into the Naval Academy he’s going to shave his head when I have to shave mine.”

Beach has been involved in more than just academics while at Central. He is a member of Central’s symphonic band as well as a member of jazz lab. Beach plays multiple instruments for the various divisions of the CYHS band. He plays the tuba for symphonic band and the trombone in jazz lab. Beach has even gotten to travel to places like Walt Disney World as a member of the band. Beach has also been involved with some of Central’s performing arts events as a member of the band.

These activities along with the others that Beach has been involved in while at Central have complemented his success in academics. Beach said that he is planning to continue his focus on Chemistry/ Physics/ Mathematics while in college. Beach will be attending the Honors College at Rochester Institute of Technology. “It’s usually referred to as RIT,” Beach said. “It has a strong emphasis on math and science and they offered me generous financial aid.” Beach is hoping to turn his interests in science and math into a rewarding career after college. Beach says that he would like to enter into the field of Chemical/Physical research as a career. Beach is hoping that his focus on Chemistry/ Physics/Mathematics will further improve his skills in these fields and will translate into a long, successful career. talk about her close friend she met and the shenanigans she participates in during the score tabulation at competitions.

with Austin Wright
Q: What college will you be attending? A: I’m going to Marywood University in Scranton. Q: What are you planning on majoring in? A: I am planning on going to school for five years to get a masters in Speech Pathology. Q: How and why did you choose Marywood? A: Sort of long story how I chose Marywood, but basically the soccer coach was recruiting me and he pretty much convinced me by informing me that Marywood was also one of the top schools in the country for Speech Pathology (my intended major). So I get to play soccer as well as study speech pathology at a good school..pretty good bonus! Q: Why are you interested in this particular major? A: I’m interested in speech because I had the wonderful opportunity to intern in the life skills (LIU) classroom at Central. I had the chance to shadow both the physical and speech therapists when they came into work with the students, and speech therapy was the one that really stuck out at me. I found it to be a really fun way of helping others. Q: When did you begin interning with the life skills kids? A: I began interning in the last semester of the last school year, and finished interning the first semester this year. Q: How have the students impacted your life? A: I can honestly say that those students are some of my biggest fans and would have my back wherever I go. The kids were just so much fun to be around. Q: Tell me about your time at Camp Pennwood. A: Camp Pennwood is a camp for intellectually disabled people, from ages 6-21 and I worked there for the past two summers and will be working this summer too as a camp counselor. Working at camp has taught me maturity, in a way where I now know it is wrong and rude to use the “R” word in a derogatory manner towards an intellectually disabled individual, or in a general setting and things of that nature. Q: What are you looking forward to in college? A: Well I guess since I don’t know anyone going to Marywood. I’m looking forward to getting to meet new people and make new friends; as well as play soccer.
Home schooling Ibikunle runs towards the Ivy League Semi Ibikunle heads to the University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2011. assists Barber in discovering her major by Danae Taylor ASST. FEATURES EDITOR
by Wareesha Tariq CO-NEWS EDITOR The most common of stereotypes against homeschooled students include rumors such as; they are extremely religious, they cannot socialize in a high school environment or they have something against the public school system. But senior Emilynn Barber was a homeschooled student until the end of her junior year and she says none of those ‘assumed facts’ are true about her. Barber, 17, first moved away from the public school system in eighth grade. She said that she felt that the school was just adding to her workl o a d and not really taking her anywhere. As a result, Barber decided to become enrolled in cyber school. A cyber school is a type of charter school where the education system is set up online for the ease of the students. It’s free of charge and access is available to various different courses. Commenting on the cyber school system and its effectiveness, Barber said, “It was much more flexible and I could move at my pace.” Barber recalled that because she was able to do things that she couldn’t do before. Barber said that she didn’t really miss the school system or any aspect of it. Rather, she said, “In middle school I was a perfectionist and that took over my life. And then with the cyber school, I got to do things that I didn’t have the time to do before.” As soon as Barber reached the ‘time’ to enroll in high school courses, she switched over to homeschooling. Barber explained the change as something she didn’t want to do, but had to. She said that the cyber school system was not completely functional for high school students, which is why she had to do the switch. As a homeschooled student, Barber had to fulfill the criteria set up by PHAA (Pennsylvania Homeschooler’s Accreditation Association) in all courses ranging from English to mathematics to science. Barber said that the best thing about home-
schooling is that “it’s not a tight schedule.” She said that she could do her schoolwork any time and if that couldn’t work, then she would do it on the weekend. Because of the flexibility of her schedule, she felt that the normal math course book was not the best for her style, she went to Borders and found one that was more to her way of learning. She said, “You have to find what’s best for you.” She said, “It’s helped me find my interest more. I am going to an art school, whereas before I would never have thought about it.” She said that instead of being scared about the various pressures of high

school, she was able to concentrate on what was really important: college. Throughout her junior year, Barber took various different courses at Penn State York to gain a better understanding of the college environment. After being out of the public school system for more than three years, Barber made a comeback in her senior year. She commented on the move by saying, “I just wanted to see what I missed.” In her opinion, she said senior year is the best time to come back. You don’t have to worry about testing and you still get to experience graduation. She said, “Everything is done with. It’s the best time to come back.” Katie Tyson, a senior and friend of Barber, said that she was very excited when she heard that Barber used to be homeschooled. She said, “I thought it was cool because not that many people are homeschooled.” Barber’s AP English teacher, Brandon Bailey said that Barber’s homeschooling background gave her a distinct advantage over others because she was much more adaptive and she took feedback much more seriously. Overall, Barber said, “It’s helped me figure out more of who I am.” Barber will be graduating with the rest of her classmates in June. She will be attending MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in the fall of 2011 and will begin her studies as a major in painting.
Senior Semi Ibikunle said he has always had an interest in pursuing a career as a doctor. During his high school career he has made an effort to make sure that he absorbed as much knowledge as he could so he pursue his dream. He took Biology, Honors Anatomy and AP Biology, which were all taught by Cherylann Hollinger. “I think I’ve gained a lot of knowledge from her classes overall that will help me out,” said Ibikunle. After getting accepted into Pennsylvania State University, University of Pittsburgh and John’s Hopkins University, Ibikunle chose the University of Pennsylvania. That was the first Ivy League school to accept him out of the three that he applied. “I was going crazy on the inside, but on the outside I was calm. I was shocked and I couldn’t believe it happened,” Ibikunle said. “I was overwhelmed with joy and happiness. I was proud of myself and my family for helping me out.”
He is going to major in biological basis of behavior which he said was a more creative form of biology. Ibikunle said he decided to apply to UPENN after a visit during his sophomore year. “I just love the city of Philly and obviously it’s a great school. When I went on my recruiting visit I just loved the people there. Everyone was friendly,” said Ibikunle. While attending UPENN, Ibikunle will be living on campus and running track. He said he is excited to do long jump and to sprint in their program. He said he plans to become a better student and to build strong relationships. He is looking forward to challenging himself and overcom-
ing any obstacles that try to stand in his way. “I’m not looking forward to the amount o f
schoolwork and the hectic schedule of balancing schoolwork and track,” said Ibikunle. He said he is not going to miss York when he leaves but he will miss his friends, his favorite teachers and the high school experience.
Ten years down the line Ibikunle said that he sees himself in a residency program working toward being a radiologist. “Ever since the beginning of high school, I’ve been drawn to it. I was always interested in being a doctor and helping people out,” said Ibikunle. Senior Lialdon Donovan-Green is one of Ibikunle’s closest friends and said he has known Ibikunle for “four gorgeous years.” He said he is going to miss Ibikunle’s “dashing good looks,” their friendship and going to track practices together. They both participated in long jump on Central’s track and field team. DonovanGreen said that he was not the least bit surprised when he heard about Ibikunle getting accepted to UPENN. “I knew he could do it because of his great work ethic,” said Donovan-Green. “We will keep in touch by Skyping every night while he’s in college and hopefully he can come over once a week,” Donovan-Green said. Donovan-Green is planning on attending California University of Pennsylvania in the fall.
TWins follow in father’s footsteps by Samantha Holt STAFF WRITER Who says twins don’t think alike? Seniors and fraternal twins, Alex and Emily Forrey seem to be on the same wavelength when it comes to college. They plan on attending the University of Delaware this upcoming fall 2011 semester. Alex, older by a minute, plans on going to Delaware for business while Emily is going for exercise science. Alex says that his father, John, attended Delaware and encouraged them to attend the top-notch school. The Forreys’ visited the campus and decided it felt like home. “We stop by on the way to the beach,” Alex said. “I’ve been there about 20 times.” Emily fell in love with the campus when she enrolled in a summer session in Delaware last year. She knew then it was the school for her. Emily and Alex agree that they have their differences but they’d rather have each other at the same college than be among complete strangers. “It makes it easier on my parents,” Alex said. “When I get there, I’ll have
someone I know.” And Emily agrees 100 percent. “I have mixed emotions about it,” Emily said. “If I’m ever in trouble I know he’ll be around. It’s a pretty big school so I won’t see him all the time.” “We’re close sometimes,” Emily admits. “He is my favorite brother.” After graduation on June 3, the Forreys have three months until they pack up and head off to Delaware. Although ready for college to begin, the twins are anxious but will miss some things about high school that they won’t have in college. “I’m going to miss my friends, hockey games, my parents, and going to LA Fitness,” Alex says. “I’m going to miss my parents, my boyfriend, and especially my dog,” Emily said. John Forrey, father of the twins and 1984 graduate of the University of Delaware, is excited for Emily and Alex as they venture off into the world of adulthood. “I’m so proud and happy that Alex and Emily will be attending the University of Delaware,” John says. “I hope the next four years will be
as fun and satisfying for the both of them as my experience was at UD many years ago.” Alex says that he’s thinking about joining a frat, club, or intramural sport. Emily said that she plans on joining a sorority as well as meeting as many
people as possible. Like most seniors ready to leave for college, Alex and Emily are excited about meeting new people, having fun on the weekends, getting good grades, and experiencing the college life. “I’m really just looking forward to moving out and not having as many rules,” Emily said.
morrison scores her spot at Boston College by Paige Benjamin STAFF WRITER
Some teenagers are dedicated to mastering a musical instrument. Others are dedicated to achieving ultimate academic success. But Casey Morrison, she’s dedicated to one thing and one thing only—soccer. Whether it’s the fierce competition, the screaming fans on the sidelines or the adrenaline rush she gets from kicking the ball, Morrison eats, sleeps, and breathes the sport she loves. Her devotion seems to have paid off. In the fall, Morrison plans on attending Boston College to play for their ACC team.
“I love that feeling you get when you play the perfect pass or when you score the game winning goal. There’s nothing like it,” Morrison said. Recently, Morrison traveled to Russia to play competitively in an international tournament. While she was there, she found out that she had received an award because of her well-honed skills. “There was 12 National teams in this tournament, and out of all of the players, I was awarded the best defender of the whole tournament. I was completely surprised and never thought I would get it. I will never forget it.”
Morrison said she hopes to someday accomplish her goal of making the full A-23 National team and go on to either play in the world cup or in the Olympics. Despite occasionally dealing with lack of focus like any normal athlete, Morrison continues to stay committed to not only the school team, but also her two club teams (the Penn Fusion Gales and the Regional ODP team). Morrison says she loves soccer because of the team atmosphere and the close, lasting bonds that she has found form between her teammates. “Our team is really
supportive on and off of the field—if someone isn’t playing their best we try to get their heads in the game and focused.” Morrison’s family’s strong involvement with the sport is yet another one of the driving forces behind what has influenced her to persistently pursue her goals. Morrison and all of her siblings played soccer when they were younger. “My family has been very supportive, coming to my games and driving me to practices. I really appreciate everything they’ve done for me and they definitely played a big part in my success.” Casey’s brother,
Shawn Morrison said that his sister has been his inspiration. “If Casey didn’t play soccer, I don’t think I would still be playing now. She kept the game fun for me by playing outside with me and teaching me new tricks as a kid.” Shawn also said that Casey has encouraged him to try harder in what he does. “She inspires me to be able to travel around the world to play against other countries. When I see pictures of her in Russia, it makes me wanna do the same,” Shawn said. At times when Casey faces an obstacle, she remembers the dream she has had in her mind since
she first started playing and uses it to motivate herself. “I just think about being on the National team and how much I want it, and it really motivates me to do better and work harder.” As for the difficulties facing her in the fall as she takes the first step in taking her soccer career to the next level, Casey said that she is more than ready to face them head on. “I think it will be pretty challenging playing as a freshman against all of these girls that are older and stronger, but I believe I can do it as long as I keep up with them physically and stay 100 percent focused,” Casey said.

CENTRAL YORK HIGH SCHOOL
Teen mother finds success through her daughter
by Corrine Elliott OPINION EDITOR
Krista Miglinas’’ daughter, Bella, helped her mother discover her passion for photography.
From school to homework, to a job at KM Photography, to taking care of a baby: this is all in a day’s work for senior, Krista Miglinas. December 13, 2009 Miglinas’ life changed forever when her daughter, Bella, was born. “First time I saw her, I knew I would do anything for her. She is like having a piece of your heart outside your body, walking around.” Miglinas grew up at Central all her life. She originally wanted to be a pilot for the Marines. As a girl she was signed up in a military program for kids her age, 12 years and up. She flew her first aircraft, C130 at the age of 14.

Pendergast said she looks forward to the diversity of the university along with the opportunity to meet new people. “I plan on majoring in International Studies because I love to travel. I traveled to Australia in 2008,” she said. American University offers more than 100 study abroad programs to their undergradtuates. “I think Taylor has more than what she needs to be successful in her major,” says fellow senior and friend Alanna Hoey. “She has always been so obsessed with traveling, especially with Australia, so a major that deals with traveling and doing things internationally is perfect for her.” However, as the only student from Central York attending AU, and two

Gabriella Ravida, a senior at Central York High School, has received acceptance letters to an array of prestigious schools. However the one congratulatory letter that put Ravida in a state of “complete disbelief” was from Princeton University. “My dad recorded me opening the letters,” said Ravida. “As soon as I read ‘Congratulations,’ we were screaming and jumping up and down. I was trying to read what it said and I started crying because I just couldn’t believe it, it was so surreal.” Ravida said that she owes her successes to her family. “They’ve been so Gabriella (right) stands with her mother, Kelley Ravida supportive of me, me getting (left).

and half hours away from her family here in York, Pendergast said that she is not looking forward to having to get to know new people. After settling in, Pendergast says she intends to participate in extra-curricular activities and take advantage of her surroundings. The student population of AU is composed of students from 139 countries and all 50 states. AU also possesses the largest U.S. undergraduate program in International Studies-the major of some 1,698 students. “I plan on hopefully doing basketball cheerleading, being part of a sorority, and studying abroad,” she said. Though wanting to be involved in multiple organizations, Pendergast still remained in saying that her biggest challenge will be being far away from everyone. “I’m going to miss all my friends and all of the people and teachers. I will miss seeing everyone every day,” she said. Regardless, Pendergast is looking forward to earning her degree in International Studies and someday traveling around the globe. “The fact that she has her plan set, and she knows where exactly she wants to go in life convinces me that her determination will definitely take her there,” Hoey said.
getting accepted anywhere. “When I visited Princeton I was scared to love it because I didn’t want to get my hopes up. That was one of the bigges things I had to overcome, to just go for it.” The decision on Princeton is not yet final, but Ravida says she’s “95 percent sure” that it’s where she’s going to go. Planning to major in international affairs, Ravida also intends to go to law school. Ravida’s Gifted Individualized Education Program teacher, Dianna Guise, describes Ravida as an “extremely dedicated and focused student.” Guise has been Ravida’s GIEP teacher for three years now, and says she thinks Ravida’s acceptance into Princeton is wonderful. “She is going to impact the world in a positive way,” says Guise. Ravdia’s gives
some advice for students that want to apply to those “hard” colleges: “Challenge yourself, because that’s what the schools look for. Everyone who applies already has those perfect scores, you need to be unique.” Ravida thinks there is a common misconception of Ivy League schools, “they only care about a perfect SAT, GPA, and a laundry list of activities. But what people don’t realize is that they want to see kids who aren’t afraid to take risks.” “Don’t be afraid to apply,” Ravida encourages other students. “People told me ‘Oh the chances of you getting in aren’t too great,’ but I applied anyway, and I got in.” “Other than the fee for the application, there’s really nothing to lose. The worse they can tell you is no,” Ravida said.

with Sarah Thompson by Breanna Heilman FEATURES EDITOR Q: What college will you be attending and what made you decide? A: I’m headed to West Chester to major in English. I might be becoming a teacher. I also look really good in gold and purple (the school’s colors). Q: What do you think is the biggest challenge you’ve had to face during high school? A: Learning to do homework or simply studying. Not that I do either of those things well, but I had to learn. Q: What has been your fondest memory that you will take with you to college? A: I’ve been to almost every football game since freshmen year with the marchingband. When I was a junior, we always had a blast at the top of the bleachers with the baritone section. Q: What changes do you see in yourself from freshman year to senior year? A: I feel like I am the exact same person. The only difference is I let myself actually be that person. Q: How was your general experience in high school? A: High school was a blast for me. I tried to have as much fun as possible. Q: What advice do you have for younger students about high school and life in general? A: People aren’t kind sometimes, but give them the benefit of the doubt and learn to work together. No one can make it alone. Q: What one person, thing or event has inspired you? A: My sister, Katie. She has been through some really hard times, but ever since I was little, she has said, “Never let anyone tell you you can’t do something. Never let them tell you you aren’t smart enough. You can do everything.” Q: Who do you look up to and why? A: I’ve always look up to people who aren’t afraid to live. I’ve always looked up to the people who live in spite of fear and hate. I look up to the people who follow their dreams. I can only dream to be half the person a lot of them already are. Q: Where do you see yourself in 10 years? A: 10 years from now, I plan on having a house with a couple of kids, a successful relationship and a home made with love. A college degree is a must and so is a job that I’m going to love. 10 years from now, I plan on being happy.

the mental aspect by knowing that someone else is doing it too.” Stoltzfus and Peterson both completed the marathon while Wolf was not able to finish due to pain in her feet.Just because both girls have reached their goals of running a marathon before 18, doesn’t mean they’re done with running in the future. “Running is something I think I will always do. Even though I hate it at times, I do love it,” said Wolf. Stoltzfus said that she doesn’t think she’ll ever take it more seriously than a casual exercise and added that she enjoys other forms of exercising such as spin classes, swimming, and biking. All and all, Wolf said that it has all been worth it. “Running, for me, has led to many friendships,” she said.
