  • Being in Gael Stadium the night Rachel Cooperstein was selected Homecoming Queen by her classmates.
  • Sharing the achievements of Dublin High students and alumni including the Class of 2010 “Live in College” series, and the opportunity to attend and report on numerous school events during the year.
  • Meeting Dublin High grad Kelsey Finnegan and learning more about her volunteer work in Ghana, Africa.
  • Interviewing Kari Byron of MythBusters – cool show, cool person and just plain cool that she’d agree to share her story with
  • Participating in the City of Dublin St. Patrick’s Day Parade for the first time – with the help of parents, students and the community.

Thank you to everyone who has found what we’re doing useful and to all of the volunteers that have made possible.  Now on to Year 2!

    Congratulations James on a great first year! Your website has been a valuable resource for Chris and I over the past year. I especially like your student reports from DHS graduates on life at their particular college. I look forward to reading more. Keep up the great work!

    Hi James,

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been just one year. Congratulations and great job for creating a very positive forum for the events that have unfolded within our school district. No doubt, from a purely budgetary standpoint, it has been a very challenging year. However, has revealed some of the great things that are happening throughout our fair town. In an age of relative negativity, it’s rather uplifting to read stories that have highlighted the good things in Dublin from east to west. Please keep up the great work and we’ll look forward to sharing more positive news from our community in 2011, and beyond.

    Thanks, Michael
