Senior Breakfast

Breslin and Showers speak to Class of 2015

Members of the Class of 2015 had the pleasure of listening to not one, but two motivational speakers as part of Liberty's traditional Senior Breakfast. After a hearty meal of bacon, sausage, eggs, French toast and danishes in the gym, the senior class moved to the auditorium.

Athletic Director Fred Harris introduced the first speaker, Mr. Pat Breslin, Breslin related the lessons he learned growing up on his grandparent's farm in upper Bucks County to the senior class. Breslin told the class, "Yes you can! As long as you keep that mindset, there's nothing that will stop you from achieving great things." Breslin then introduced his friend, Two-time NHRA Motorcycle Drag Racing World Champion, Reggie Showers.

Showers SpeakerShowers, a twenty-year veteran of the NHRA Drag circuit regaled his audience about the thrill of riding one of the fastest, most expensive motorcycles in the world, and achieving his childhood dream of becoming a World Champion. His message to the students that they could do anything they set their mind to, as long as they believed in themselves, was brought home with startling clarity to the senior class when Mr. Showers, a double amputee, showed the students his prosthetic legs. "One bad choice I made when I was fourteen changed everything." said Showers.

Showers told the students about growing up poor in West Philadelphia, about his views of school and the fateful day when he climbed atop a freight car and nearly died after accidentally touching a high-tension electric wire over the boxcar. Mr. Showers spoke of the importance of having a support group to help through the tough times. His presentation gave the senior class more than just something to think about.

runners

Over the weekend, many of our athletes and musicians took time to give back to their community. Over 30 LHS Student Athletes, most of them cheerleaders, participated in the VIA 5K on Saturday at 7:30 in the morning. Their race entrance Saturday benefited children and adults with disabilities and further shows Liberty High's commitment to building leadership in our students through community support and philanthropy.

A special shout to Senior Ally Clause and Junior Logan Priestas for their leadership in organizing our students on Saturday.

Szamba English camp in Szentendre, Hungary

Schaeffer

Ted Schaffer - LHS science teacher, 4 other adults and a group of 10 students from Calvary Baptist Church traveled to Eastern Europe for a joint project in service learning with Szentendre Baptist Church in Szentendre, Hungary. The group included students from around the area including 3 Freedom High students Brian Hemphill, Rachel Hemphill, and Julianna Squerrini and 1 Liberty Alumni - Katie Podlasinski. The experience included working in Slovakia at a camp, hiking the mountains in Slovakia with local teens, landscaping in Slovakia and in Szentendre Hungary, and finally the last week teaching English at the camp we cosponsor. The teens each had a classroom of Hungarian students and taught English for 4 hours each morning with informal English practice / sports in the afternoon. The American teens wrote lesson plans, build specialized activities and organized learning games to increase retention of English. This is an on-going partnership with the Churches and the Town of Szentendre and is seen as a very positive interaction between the Hungarians and Americans. The school was open to the youth of the town and most did not have any association with the local church.
