Supper, auction to benefit student’s trip


by Tomi Henderson

    Zach Maynard, one of Washburn’s senior students, has the opportunity to travel to Kansas City to attend the Skills USA National Convention. He won the gold medal in masonry in the state competition on March 15 and 16. Three vocational students, Breanna Hyde, Tia Dee and Zach Maynard, traveled to Bangor to compete against other students in Skills USA. He is now eligible to travel to Kansas City in June to compete in the nationwide competition. Congratulations, Zach!

    On April 12, there will be a chicken supper and auction at the Presque Isle High School cafeteria to raise money for the students planning to attend. Any tickets sold at WDHS will go toward Zach’s trip. Also, any auction donations collected at the school will go directly to Zach once they are purchased. You can drop off auction donations anytime at the high school.

Tickets are available by e-mailing, guidance counselor. Adult dinner tickets are $8 and children under 12 are $5. Please help to support Zach!


The annual Junior Exhibition

    Nick Silver recited two of Bill Cosby’s monologues — “The Playground” and “Lumps” — that had the audience laughing, especially the younger children! He was named the winner of the annual Junior Exhibition on Friday, April 6, at Washburn District High School.


    Jesse Prescott recited “Carpe Diem,” written by himself, during the annual Junior Exhibition on April 6 at Washburn District High School. He was named the first runner-up and received the People’s Choice Award.


    Kolby Koch recited “The Paper Bag Princess” by Robert Munsch during the annual Junior Exhibition at Washburn District High School. Kolby showed that all princes aren’t worth saving, as her “beloved Prince Robert” turned out to be a real bum!


    Daniel Roy recited “American Pie” by Don McLean during the annual Junior Exhibition on Friday, April 6, at Washburn District High School. He gave a different slant to each verse that brought new dimensions to the song lyrics.
