Payson High School’s Future Farmers of America hosted the 2018 Sweethearts assembly on Feb. 16. The assembly thrilled students for the dance that took place the following Saturday. The student-packed auditorium got together to see the nominated contestants sell cakes and get crowned.

         Matthew Tervort, FFA vice-president, was the auctioneer for the day. Overall, $1540 were raised from all of the cakes, including three bought by the student council. Claire Rowley’s “Beauty and The Beast” themed cake was voted the best and sold for $350. In the end, Sweethearts royalty was crowned. Myranda Goodworth was second attendant, Cambrielle Fitzwater first attendant, and Claire Rowley was crowned as Sweethearts Queen. Rowley said, “It was fun, I got to try out new things and I’m just glad I did it.” Cakes, money and royalty: the assembly was a great way to end the week and prepare students for the upcoming dance.

Sterling Scholar Spotlight

Payson High School News - Wed, 02/21/2018 - 10:45am

Here at Payson High School we’re proud of our Sterling Scholars, and many have been highlighted. Micah Toelupe, the winner of the Visual Art Sterling Scholar, needs his time to shine! Not saying we saved the best for last but...

Micah has been drawing, painting, dreaming and doodling since a very young age, as long as he can remember. To the people who grew up with Micah the fact that he won this Scholar was a “no duh” scenario. Micah knows for sure that art will be more than just a hobby in his future, when asked he answered, “I definitely want art to be a big part of my future.”  

Many students know of Micah’s artistic talent, and many more have originals painted from the master himself that were given as presents.  When asked why he tried for Sterling Scholar Micah stated, “This was just a big dream for me, I always wanted to be the Visual Arts Sterling Scholar, to excel in the art world. The Sterling Scholar was something that helped me achieve that, that helped me put myself out there.” We’re so proud of Micah here at PHS and we can’t wait to see where his art takes him! Congratulations Micah on earning the Visual Art Sterling Scholar.

Black Panther Movie Review

Payson High School News - Wed, 02/21/2018 - 10:10am
Attributions: By; Ryan lines of the Lions Roar Newspaper

After watching a movie, I try to find a word that sums up the story and my overall experience while watching. After watching Black Panther, the only word I can actually think of is, “Wow!”

              The story is based around protagonist T’Challa, an African prince who has to fix previous problems in his highly electronically advanced Kingdom that his recently deceased Father left behind. He’ll discover what it means to be a leader, and how to define his own path in this life. T’Challa is portrayed by actor Chadwick Boseman. He’s accompanied by Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, and Letitia Wright. This group of four are the main protagonists. Erik Killmonger (the main antagonist) is portrayed by Michael B. Jordan .He makes up the majority of the problems in the film.

Boseman portrays T’Challa in the best way possible. He has the attitude, energy and strength that is always shown when looking at the Black Panther.

               I’m gonna come out and say that Erik Killmonger is one of, if not the best villain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You can truly see where his opinions and and where his and T’Challa’s values differ.

                Lupita, Danai, and Letitia are such amazing female supporting characters! To put it simply, the movie would be strikingly worse if these characters were not there.

                Wakanda is where the movie takes place. We’ve never seen Wakanda before. But, seeing Wakanda for the first time in its true glory made the audiences mouth gape in awe. The development and the culture of this setting is amazing, and it’s a good change to what’s usually portrayed for Africans in poverty. That’s another thing, these people aren’t in poverty! They are technologically advanced, so their worries are not about survival, but their royalty to the throne. Their technology makes absolutely no sense, but it is so cool! Wakanda is a A+ in my book.

The fight scenes in this movie were phenomenal! When you watch them, you can see how exhilarating,and dangerous it is to live in this universe. If you haven’t seen this movie, go and see it! It will blow you away. I went into this movie with fairly high expectations, and I was astounded with how amazing it was! I give Black Panther 9/10

Every picture featured in the hallways at PHS are packed with years of history. For this month’s issue, our photo remake spotlights Dance Company. While the original photo was taken in the late eighties, the current photo was taken only a couple weeks ago. Change has definitely taken place between these two photos. The old dance company definitely had amazing style, with the big hair and black leotards.  Our dance company now, however, not only has amazing style, but is slaying away every performance they have. As the years have passed on, many things have changed, but change can be a good thing. Change brings many different opportunities for everyone who is willing to take them. As we come together to support every team here at school, our school spirit only grows stronger. As it goes, we are the Mighty Lions.
