Clover High cadets chosen for summer seminars

March 12, 2013 

Clover High School juniors and cadets Jonathan Bruney and Hayden Matkovich have been accepted into the U.S. Air Force Academy and U.S. Naval Academy Summer Seminars in Colorado Springs, Colo., and Annapolis, Md.

The seminars are a fast-paced, six-day experience for high school students who are high achievers. The selection process is competitive with only 3,000 students selected; more than 18,000 students apply each year. The intensive program teaches students about life at the Air Force and Naval Academies and how academics, athletics and professional training all play equally important roles in developing great leaders.

Both cadets are involved in Clover High School’s Air Force JROTC and band programs.

Youth art displayed through Sunday

The downtown streets of Rock Hill, Fort Mill, Tega Cay, York and Clover are lined with student designs for the Arts Council of York County Banner Project through Sunday, March 17.

This year, there were 156 designs from 39 schools, resulting in 78 banners by 1,000 York County students. This year’s theme was “Performing Arts.”

“Typically, students’ artwork is confined to the walls/display cases of their school, parents’ refrigerators, or at their grandparents’ homes,” said James Wells, Arts Council of York County’s board member and former art teacher at Clover Middle School.

“With the banner project, the community is able to see the wonderful work and experience the beauty that art brings to the area.”
