Graduate gets $3,000 scholarship
Seyan Coco, a recent graduate of Orange High School, is the recipient of a $3,000 Crawford Johnson, III and Walker Johnson Jones college scholarship on behalf of the Coca-Cola Bottling Company United, Inc.
Seyan, a resident of Pepper Pike, is the daughter of Sean Coco, who is employed at Crescent City Metro Coca-Cola, a sales center of Coca-Cola UNITED in Birmingham, Alabama.
Coca-Cola UNITED established the Crawford Johnson, III scholarship program in 1995 in honor of the company’s former CEO Crawford Johnson III’s retirement and his 45 years of service. This year, 20 children, stepchildren, grandchildren or step-grandchildren of Coca-Cola UNITED associates, located throughout the southeast, were selected from more than 75 applicants to receive either a $5,000 or $3,000 scholarship, renewable over four years. Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance, leadership, extracurricular activities and service.
Class of 2020 visits school
Earlier this month, Orange High School seniors stopped by the school at designated times to pick up any personal items and drop off school supplies and to pick up their graduation caps and gowns. All lockers were cleaned out by the custodians ahead of time, bagged and labeled with students’ names and locker numbers. All staff wore masks and everyone followed rigorous safety measures. OHS Senior Brian Pernell is seen here practicing safety while picking up his cap, gown and other items.
Student photography on display
While taking part in distance learning, students in Melissa Conrad’s photography class at Orange High School created works of art using a significant quotation coupled with each student’s photography.

Safe School Helpline
The Orange City School District states that providing a safe and secure learning environment for students is important even during remote learning. Students, parents and community members are urged to use the Safe School Helpline to report threats of violence, suicide, bullying and illegal activity that could harm children. This service provides users the opportunity to leave a message or speak with a live crisis counselor for immediate needs. The helpline is administered by an independent, outside company. All communications are private, confidential and anonymous.
The Safe School Helpline can be accessed via three methods: by telephone at 1-800-4-1-VOICE, ext. 359 (1-800-418-6423 ext. 359); online at www.safeschoolhelpline.com; or by texting 66746 and typing “TIPS” as the message.
Messages will be communicated with school officials. All information will remain anonymous to encourage the reporting of all safety concerns. Reports will be assigned a case number, which the sender may use later to confirm that their report was received and investigated.
Students selected for virtual chorus
Orange High School Thespians have long-standing tradition with Playhouse Square’s Dazzle Awards, having received multiple nominations in the past five years. Although the Dazzle Awards were canceled this year, Playhouse Square selected area high school students to perform in the virtual chorus of “Morning Glow” from the Stephen Schwartz musical “Pippin,” including seniors Robert Miron and Jordan Popovsky.
