The 10th Annual 3 Angels Tennyball Tournament was held on August 2. This year, twenty seven teams participated and all went home winners. The tournament raised over $4,000 in scholarship funds for the students at Bishop Donahue High School. Special thanks to alumni Tyler Schorr, Brian McCulley, and Melissa McCulley, for their outstanding work in remembering Danielle, JoBeth and Courtney!
For the first time in school history, an Advanced Strings class is being offered at B.D.H.S. Students who have previously played the cello, violin, viola or double bass were eligible to participate. The interest in Strings at the Elementary and Middle schools of Marshall County spurred the creation of the class. Mrs. Molly Williams, who is working toward her Ph. D. in Musicology, serves as the class instructor. During the 2014-15 school year, B.D.H.S. students will have the opportunity to collaborate with the John Marshall High School Strings program, and play with the Wheeling Symphony Youth Orchestra.
