Student Council hosts annual Christmas Assembly

Student Council performs “Talk Nerdy to Me”

The Tyrone High School Student Council hosted the annual Christmas assembly for the students, staff and faculty on Tuesday, December 23, 2014.

This well loved Tyrone tradition was organized by Mrs. Erica Martin and Student Council and included student performances, skits, dances, and awards.

The assembly began with POPS Extension performing some traditional Christmas songs.

“It was great to be able to show the student body all of the hard work that we have put into our performance,” said Paige Umholtz, POPS Extension member and Tyrone sophomore.

Tyrone senior Garrett Hunter then played a Christmas song on his guitar.

“It was a really great experience and I’m glad I was given the opportunity to do it,” said Hunter.

After the performance by Hunter, student council performed a dance parody of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty to Me’ called “Talk Nerdy to Me.” They dressed up like nerds and performed a choreographed dance.

“It was a lot of hard work including practices after school, but I’m glad I did it because it was a lot of fun,” said junior Anna Baran, who participated in the dance.

The assembly continued with a skit, called “Luke.O”, a spin-off of popular Comedy Central show, “Tosh.O”. It was meant to be a talk show, hosted by Dean of Students Mr. Rhoades, who was played by senior Mark Lewis.

Lewis acted as Rhoades while interviewing many guests, including; Mrs. Johnannides, played by Michaela Diehl, Mr. Funicelli, played by Sean McGovern, Mr. Cammarata, played by Adam Zook, and Mr. Gruber, played by Jake Makdad.

“The Christmas assembly was a lot of fun. We are so lucky at Tyrone to be able to enjoy things like this, thanks to clubs like Student Council and Youth Action Network. I’m happy that I could be involved,” said Lewis.

The final performance was by some of the junior and senior football players, who put on a dance to many familiar songs.

“It was a great experience and a nice way to remember my final Christmas assembly,” said Andrew Bartos, Tyrone senior who participated in the dance.

The assembly was closed by the announcing of the winner of the “ugly Christmas sweater” contest, which was won by Karen Rumberger and her student Andy.
