Junior selected as writing finalist
Orange High School junior Ryan Vincent was selected as a finalist in the International Scenario Writing competition at the International Future Problem Solving Program on June 4-7 with his scenario, “The Grey Ocean,” which told the tale of a moon miner who was stuck in a crater. Ryan’s scenario was based on his research of terra-forming on the moon. Students from 12 countries and 37 states competed in this international program.
The mission of the Future Problem Solving Program is to develop the ability of young people globally to design and achieve positive futures through problem-solving using critical and creative thinking. Ryan qualified for the international competition after earning first place in the state by the Ohio Future Problem Solving Program for his scenario, “Circadia,” which focused on the current issue of sleep deprivation.
Alum receives national award
Orange High School alumnus Jacob Cramer from the Class of 2018 was selected this month as a Diller Teen Tikkun Olam National Award recipient. Only 15 teens nationwide were honored as “inspiring leaders who exhibit courage, commitment, and compassion, bringing hope for the future.” Jacob earned the recognition for his “Love for the Elderly” program, which began when he was a student in the Orange schools. These awards celebrate tikkun olam, or “repairing the world.”
Virtual Art Gallery
As the district moves through the summer months, Orange schools will share some of the artistic endeavors of its students and staff. Many of these posts include works created by the OHS Spanish IV students in Gary DiBianca’s class who took part in a virtual art gallery simulation. Students each created art pieces inspired by their lives and the life and work of a Hispanic artist.
