South Haven Students Do well at Music Festival

"Congratulations to the JH/HS Choir for receiving an "Excellent-2 Rating"at the State Solo/Ensemble Music Festival. In addition, congratulations to Lucas Kuchar for receiving a "Outstanding-1 Rating" and MaKaylin Kuchar for receiving an "Excellent-2 Rating" for vocal solos.

We are so pleased with South Haven's representation and success at KSHSAA State Solo/Ensemble Virtual Music Festival this spring.

Could everyone please say great job in person or in email to Cole Wiens. He set a new record for OSHA safety tests. The high score was set in 2015 by Seth Brown of 85.7 then broken by Garrett Howell in 2018 with 88.9. Cole crushed both those scores with a 97.3. 

To Mr. Byers' dismay, Cole also exceeded his score of 94. To justify himself,  he told Cole they changed the rules (and they did).  You could only take test modules 3 times back in the day! Mr. Byers took 2 of them twice, while Cole retook 11 modules a total of 23 retakes !!!!!!

NO ONE wants to retake them any more than necessary. But Cole's goal was to not only have the top score but to have a higher score than Mr Byers! 


Mr. Byers picked this shirt as a reward because he thought it showed Cole blew a hole in his competition. What a great work ethic - if you want something work hard for it !! Congratulations, Cole!
