Spring Breakers

Spring break was a huge success as a hiatus from school for most students. Mental and  physical rest after the last three stressful quarters was much needed. Many people took this time to go on vacation, stay home, hang out with friends, and most of all, relax (Photo courtesy of Katy Patrick).

  • Going out of the country for vacation is a great way to get away from the reality of too many responsibilities (Photo courtesy of Lynne Garrison). “[My family and I] went on a cruise to Grand Turks, San Juan, St. Kitts, and finally St. Maarten. We chilled at the beach on all the islands, did a “flowrider” which is like a surfing simulator in Turks, parasailing in San Juan, swam with dolphins and met some really cool monkeys in St. Kitts, and lastly we drove jet skis in St. Maarten,” said freshman Savannah Garrison.

  • “My grandparents forced me to go to Israel this spring break for conversion camp. But I ended up really enjoying it because I got to meet many people like me and tour different places such as the Dead Sea and Jerusalem,” said sophomore Katy Patrick (Photo courtesy of Katy Patrick).

  • Some students took a trip to go experience new places and sightsee (Photo Courtesy of Marty Winsch). “My family and I took a trip to several different places in California, including Downtown Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Moorpark. We did many different things, like seeing the pier, hiking to [see] the Hollywood sign, and [seeing] the stars in Hollywood. I would love to go back because, although we did a lot, there is still so much [more] my family and I could’ve done,” said junior Max Winsch.

  • “My family and [I] went to Washington D.C. and stayed downtown. We went pretty much everywhere downtown and saw all the major memorials such as the Lincoln, Vietnam, Korean, Jefferson, and Washington memorials. We also got to see the White House and tour the Capitol building. It was a lot of walking around, but the food was great,” said sophomore Elisa Payan.

  • Other students went to watch sports and get away through that experience (Photo courtesy of Sam Cooter). “I went to Loganville, Georgia to see my 15 year old cousin play baseball. It was all I really did over break, but it was a lot of fun to watch him play his favorite sport,” said junior Sam Cooter.

  • “I went to Columbia for the March Madness tournament. I got to watch UCF and Duke play in the second round and the game was absolutely incredible. I was pulling for UCF so it was really disappointing to see them lose 77-76. I’m so glad that I got to go because it was really a lot of fun,” said junior Connor Beaule (Photo courtesy of Connor Beaule).

  • Over the break, the Brashier baseball team had a double header against Greenville Technical Charter High School and beat them in both of the games they played. The score in the first game was 4-1 and in the second game Brashier won 11-2 (Photo courtesy of Mallory Smith). “It wasn’t great that we had to come and play two games over our break, but it was great to bring home two big wins,” said Beaule.

  • While most students took this week as a break from anything related to school, senior project was still on this student’s mind (Photo Courtesy of Katelyn Kargol). “I have been training my dog, Katniss, for my senior project. The end goal was to have her get her Canine Good Citizen and therapy dog certification. She managed to get both of these this past spring break. We just have to get through three visits to different facilities with Alliance of Therapy Dogs and an observer then she’s fully certified!” said senior Katelyn Kargol.

  • “For my senior project I am constructing a table for North Greenville University women’s basketball team. Over the break I pretty much finished the table. I sanded the drawers, added a finishing glaze, screwed metal tracks into the drawers, screwed the table top into the legs and base, and applied a finish wax on all outside surfaces,” said senior Alejandro Escobar (Photo Courtesy of Gregg Cornell).

  • Now that break is over, students have had the time they needed to refresh. Students are already thinking about summer but spring break hopefully gave them the motivation to finish out their work for the rest of the school year.
