  • Unicycling gaining popularity at LAHS

     

    If you have ever looked at those able to balance on just one wheel with envy, then you are not alone. Maxwell Hermann recently started a unicycling club at Los Alamos High School. 

    Hermann’s inspiration for unicycling came from watching Max Schulze, the 2012 world champion unicyclist who is from Los Alamos and Emily Pittman, a recent LAHS graduate and unicyclist, perform a unicycling routine in a pep rally at LAHS, last year. This summer Hermann’s boss convinced him to buy a unicycle and since then he has been riding with Max Schulze nearly every day. 

    In fact, Hermann is a world championship hopeful; “Two years from now in Spain there is the Unicycling World Championships and I’m hoping to qualify in the beginners’ category,” he said.

  • Program helps teens identify with community

    Opportunities for work in the teenage years can be limited. Youth Mobilizers, a program administered by the Family YMCA and funded by the Juvenile Justice Advisory Board (JJAB), seeks to provide teens with a way to identify community issues and address them through projects.
    Teens offer an outside perspective that can make all the difference in new and innovative growth. Including teens in important community issues, Youth Mobilizers then empowers them to change a perceived issue by employing them to fix it.
    Recreating the atmosphere of the job application process, a youth fills out a job application through the Family YMCA. This is followed with an interview to complete the application process. A project is then proposed by the teen that must meet one of the program’s goals:
    • Celebrate teens and their interests/accomplishments
    • Further teen skills and experience in an area of teen interest
    • Empower teens voice in the community regarding topics that are important to them
    After the project is approved, an adult from the program is paired with the teen to provide guidance through the process. The pair then meets and constructs a plan with the details of the project. Goals, timetables, and quality are discussed and included in this plan.

  • LAHS Olions’ One Acts engaging to audience

    Los Alamos High School, once again, showcased its theatrical talents at the The Olions Thespian Club Annual One Acts show.
    This year’s performance featured two separate one acts. The first, “Roll the Dice,” was written and directed by LAHS senior Charles Herman.
    The performances featured Rosemary Vigil as the narrator and the acting talents of Opale Shapert, Megan Pimentel, Marja Graham and Donald Poston.
    The first play consisted of a scene involving poems transformed into narration, followed by an instance of characters placed in specific situations where they step outside of their comfort zone.
    The theatrical work provoked thought about controversial moral issues and was entertaining throughout.
    The second performance of the night was written and directed by another LAHS senior Ben Reichelt.
    Reichelt put together an extremely entertaining play showcasing aspiring actors Emma Martens, Leander Murphy, Lauren Partin, Jack Majure-Barkley, Max Hermann and Daniel Sarrao.
    The plot line followed the complicated story of a knife factory, a murder and an escaped convict searching for his coat.
    Ending the evening, the cast of both performances came together for a group dance number to the classic hit, “The Time Warp.”
