Liberty Sophmore Advances to Nationals in the Chemistry Olympiad

Sophomore (and super genius) Ben Kraft has advanced to the National level of competition for the American Chemical Society's United States National Chemistry Olympiad. Ben was one of only 10 students from the Lehigh Valley to move on to national competition. The initial local test was Saturday (March 14th) at Muhlenberg College. Liberty had 18 students participate.

Approximately 10,000 U.S. students between the ages of 13 and 18 enter local Chemistry Olympiad competitions vying for a chance to compete in the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad and the International Chemistry Olympiad. ACS local sections conduct local competitions each March to select nominees for the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad. Each local section can send 10 students to participate in the national competition. Exams for the U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad Competition will be administered April 23-27, 2009. Nearly 1,000 students are expected to participate. The three-part, 4.5-hour exam consists of a multiple choice section, free response problem solving section and a lab practical section. The 20 top-scoring students are eligible to compete at a study camp for the International Chemistry Olympiad, to be held July 18-27, 2009, in Cambridge, England.

Spring Concert

As of today, March 19th, there are only 50 school days remaining in the 2008-2009 school year. Wow! What a year it has been. Liberty High School has celebrated many accomplishments from the trophies earned in the sports arena to the accolades of the fine arts programs. We have seen, or soon will see, the end of a long, yet worthwhile construction and renovation project. We have accepted the call to foster a school environment that embraces diversity, and most importantly, we continue to battle academic challenges to meet the needs of all of our student population.

What a pleasure it was to have returned to the auditorium for the Winter Concert, and the Spring Concert will be just as glorious. Mrs. Justice and Mr. Klenk have been encouraging, and yes, pushing, the choral students to reach beyond the impossible. The program selections performed for this concert will demonstrate just that.

  • The Women’s Ensemble is preparing the French piece “Sous le dome epais” (from the opera LAKME), “Life Has Loveliness to Sell”, the text written by the American poet Sara Teasdale, “De Colores”, a Spanish Folk Song used as a symbol of unity and peace, and an arrangement of a popular Welsh Folk Song, “The Ash Grove”.

  • The Choraliers go conga with the a cappella “Jamaican Market Place” by Larry Farrow, challenge the audience to determine the meter in “Old Joe Has Gone Fishing” by Benjamin Britten, offer a plea for peace in Carly Simon’s “Let the River Run” and travel into the musical PIPPIN as they perform the tender love song, “With You.”

  • The mass choir has prepared “Hallelujah Chorus” from the Mount of Olives. This is not the one by Handel, rather Beethoven, and is part of the choral repertoire of PMEA Choruses. Lee Dengler’s setting of “Pacem” brings lush harmony to this prayer for peace. And get ready for the driving beat behind a song from Argentina, “El Cielo Canta Alegria.”

We look forward to seeing you on FridayApril 3rd, at 7:30 p.m. in Liberty High School auditorium. Tickets are $5 and may be purchased at the door. Doors will open at 6:30 pm. Tell your friends that it is cheaper than a movie, and always Oscar worthy!

Penn State Assistant Coach Mike McQueary visits LHS

Senior Breakfast prieview
Watch the slide show

The Spirit Week festivities continued when Penn State Assistant Coach Mike McQueary spoke at the Senior Breakfast this morning. McQueary, wide receiver coach and recruiting coordinator for the #3 ranked Nittany Lions was accompanied by the Nittany Lion himself. Both were received warmly by the assembled class of 2009.

Mrs. Durante introduced the various guests from Central Administration and then turned the microphone over to Guidance Counselor Randy Buck, who played for Penn State in 2002. Buck, spoke of the encouragement McQueary had given to him, a young walk-on from Wilkes-Barre, PA.  

The ex-quarterback walked through the crowded cafeteria, foregoing the microphone while the seniors listened intently to his nearly forty-five minute talk. He cautioned the students to take life one step at a time, because the real world can be pretty unforgiving of mistakes.

McQueary told the story of a conversation with Coach Paterno when he was a starter at Penn State. He’d won several games in a row, when Paterno told him, “How you handle praiseand how you handle criticism will determine your career.” McQueary lost the next game and admitted to the assembled students, “I didn’t handle it well. I didn’t handle the praise, I let it go to my head.”

McQuery told the students to not forget why they were in school, and reminded them that they only had one chance to be 17 or 18 or 19. “It’s ok to have fun, but don’t lose sight of what’s important.”

The Seniors cheered McQueary when he told them, “And what’s important this weekend is beating Freedom! I think this team is going to do it by three touchdowns!”

After the talk, both Mr. McQueary and the Lion took time to pose for pictures with students and faculty.
