    West High’s 30th Variety Show: May 1, 2015

     

    The Variety Show was a huge success. We earned $2600 for the Wounded Warriors Project.  We had a great time celebrating the talent in our student body.  Student Senate did a great job putting it all together.  Unfortunately, there were photo op glitches.  If you have pictures of Michael Trettin’s “All of Me,” Meghan Keeney’s “Safer,” Boyz Whom Noize’s “Seven Nation Army,” Michael Cooler’s Duel Sword Samurai, Kylie Finch & Michael Trettin’s “Lay Me Down,” and Jacob Clearman’s “Tonight the World Dies,” PLEASE e-mail them to me (searlek@davenportschools.org).

    West High’s Endotherm Team presented to the College of Business Board of Directors’ meeting at the University of Iowa.  All in attendance were in wonderment at the team’s accomplishment.  Entrepreneurs John Pappajohn and Tom Bedell, Dean Sarah Gardial, Executive Director of JPEC David Hensley, and Provost Butler commented this team would have won our college Shark Tank event held with entrepreneur Daymond John from the popular show Shark Tank. After Endotherm’s presentation, John Pappajohn  donated $10,000 to the team, Tom Bedell contributed $1000, and  University of Iowa STEM Innovator program contributed $500.  The University of Iowa is excited  at the possibilities that lie ahead by partnering with the Davenport School District on these exciting initiatives. Congratulations to all involved.   —Leslie Flynn, Ph.D. and Dawn Bowlus  U of I
