Dhs Clubs

Culinary

The DHS Pro-Start Club made it to nationals in D.C. this year. They were able to do this because at state they made the qualifications. At Nationals, the culinary group was able to go on a tour of the great city visiting many of our national monuments there in D.C. While competing in the pro-start group nationals’ competition, they were featured live during the cook off with forty-eight other schools. In the end, the Deming team placed thirtieth out of the fourth-eight. They did an outstanding job this year. The high school congratulates them on their victory and in making it to nationals this year. We are proud of you, and we wish you the best of luck for next year as we say goodbye to the two seniors that was be leaving this year, Emily Wertz, and Lisa Klockgether.

Drama Club

The DHS drama club has had five productions this year. They were very lively and colorful productions. As we’ve gone through the year, we have been able to watch the students as they progress more and more as actors with each play.

The first play they did was Montague’s Revenge. It was about the twisted aftermath of the Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet. They open to show Romeo in hell and him making a deal with the devil that if he were to get his revenge on Friar Laurence and send him too hell then the devil will allow Romeo to leave to heaven with Juliet. In the end Romeo exposed Friar Laurence as a con artist and made good on his deal with the devil to go with Juliet.

Their second production was at the Intermediate school where they performed Montague’s Revenge for the second time.

The third production was The North Poles Got Talent. It was a talent show consisting of Christmas characters/comedy. It had Christmas characters such as, the Grinch, Elsa Anna and Olaf, Reindeer, Elves, Professor Hugo, Santa, and Christmas trees and presents. along with many others. They performed it at five different locations. Deming High School, Chaparral Elementary, Bataan Elementary, Ruben S. Torres, and Memorial Elementary.

The forth play was The Miracle Worker. This play was about, Hellen Keller. A woman that went blind and deaf as a baby due to a fever. And is helped to find a way of communication with real world people. Her teacher, Annie Sullivan was a half bind woman as well. She shared her way to living with her condition with Hellen, as well has help her find a way of her own to assist with the difficulties of communication.

The last production that the drama club produced was Hairspray. It was a combination of the older and the newer movie productions. It was one of the drama clubs best shows yet. They were very well rehearsed. They had full attention of the audience at all times while being comical but not losing the overall stream of the story. It was dramas last production of the year and it was definitely a memorable one.

The Broadcaster would like to applaud Mr. Walter Hand with the great job he has done with the drama club this year.

Art Club

The DHS Art Club recently entered into a Vans Custom Design Competition. The prize was $75,000 to the winning school. With their shoe design they were able to make it into the top 50 out of 500 schools that were entered. From there it was open voting. Anyone could vote to have our school in the top 5. In the end DHS did not make the top 5, but all in all, it was an accomplishment in itself. And the school of Deming High is very proud.
