Thursday, April 4, executives from Humana came in to judge projects done by students in Mr. Shaw's Visual Basic class. They came in to judge how groups were able to work together and solve a time management problem. The problem that the groups faced is that they had to come up with a plan of action on making a computer lab. The groups not only had to compete against each other but also with groups in other schools in Louisville. The winners of the competition win laptops from Humana. The competition has been going on for about four years now. Bradley Grimes says "It was interesting to learn so much about project management in such a short time."
UPDATE: The S.C. team consisting of Nathaniel Parker, Matthew Wayne and Justin James were awarded the 2nd place trophy in the competition. All the students who competed were awarded a refurbished laptop for their hard work.

Senior Trip in Review
by Layne Taylor
Members of Silver Creek High School's Senior Class embarked on a six day trip to our nation's capital from April 17 to April 23. Close to ninety seniors and six chaperones, consisting of Principal Mike Crabtree and teachers Bob Shaw, Elene Harris, Mary Beth Coffman, Darren Harris, and Joe Ledbetter, experienced this once in a lifetime trip. Not only is it a chance for the Seniors to grow close as their Senior year winds down, but it also serves as an opportunity for them to see a side of their teachers they have never seen prior to the week spent in D.C. Physically and emotionally, this trip was one for the ages. Our class was able to see and learn about our nation’s historical heroes and the monuments erected in honor of their feats, such as Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, along with seeing some of the most beautiful and extravagant buildings ever built, like the Library of Congress, the Capital Building, and the White House . Few are fortunate enough to lay eyes on the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence in the National Archives Building or study the exhibits at the Smithsonian Museums of Air and Space, American History, and Natural History. Some spent their free time lounging on the National Mall, reaching from the Capital Building to the Washington Monument. However as a whole, we recognized the horror of the Holocaust and paid tribute to the victims of 9/11 and the fallen men and women in Arlington Cemetery, including President John F. Kennedy. The Seniors shared both laughs and tears with their fellow peers and the caring adults who have helped them grow and mature over the past four years. Closing the book on the five days of newly born memories was the cruise on the breathtaking Potomac River. Silver Creek rocked the night away before sharing one last dance to their senior song, “It’s Time”, by Imagine Dragons. Saying goodbye to D.C., the ninety-six young men and women climbed aboard the bus early Tuesday morning. Although we were leaving and the trip was over, the memories we shared and experienced with our classmates, some of us being together for over ten years, will live on beyond Washington D.C.’s city limits and will carry on through the bonds and friendships made during this unforgettable trip.
SC Marching Band at Pegasus Parade
by Jake McKinley
On May 2nd, the Silver Creek Marching Band had a very nice opportunity, alongside Henryville and Borden, to march in the Pegasus Parade for the Derby. In a nearly three mile march, all of the participating marchers performed a medley of various Disney songs; one of which was "Zippidee-do-dah." The three bands had all practiced together in the weeks prior, so needless to say, they were ready. The crowd definitely seemed to love them! Sophomore, Jerrod Richmer, said "While it was an exhausting three mile march, I definitely enjoyed myself doing it, and hopefully they'll allow them to do it again next year."
Rocksport Field Trip
by Adam Wilder
On May 15 the Advanced PE class took a field trip to Rocksport, a rock wall climbing facility in Kentucky. We rock wall climbed for three hours and learned how to do what is called top rope climbing. Top rope is when you have another person holding you up in case you fall instead of a machine. It was a great work out and a lot of fun. Romney Allen stated, “We had a lot of fun and it was an intense workout.”
