Happy with my assignment—Gina Chien
Submitted by: James Niccum
Education is not only for the
beginning of your life its something you
do your whole life. It takes leaving
everything and everyone behind to begin
that journey, sometimes. Like most
teenagers today we have a lot on our
minds. Food, friends, sports, sleep and
music are the general thoughts
processed. Not until we hit our senior
year do we begin to compose our future.
However, there are instances when a
teenager decides to begin their future
at a much younger age, such as Gina
Sixteen-year-old Gina knows all too well
about leaving everything behind. Before
arriving at Adrian high as a foreign exchange student from Taiwan with a school population of 2000, Gina was
unaware of the density of
Oregon. While living in Taiwan, Gina
enjoyed many things such as: playing
piano, singing, computer games,
shopping, and eating/cooking. Her family
includes her father, who is a technology
engineer, mother, a piano teacher, and
her 18-year-old sister now in college.
Since moving to Adrian Gina has been active in
volleyball, and plans on participating in all
the other sports
has to offer. When asked what the main reason
was for becoming a foreign exchange student she
explained it was mostly to better her English
(even though she sounds sufficiently fluent).
After graduating, Gina is not sure yet but wants
to become either a Airline steward, Pharmacist,
or Elementary Teacher. Since relocating here in
Adrian, Gina was home sick during the
first few weeks, but now has grown more
accustomed to America and what
it has to offer.
Throughout her journey in Adrian Oregon, Gina
will acquire many new skills and have mastered
the English language by terms end. Although it
may be hard to have left her family and friends,
it’s for the greater good of her future. She
wants to become a teacher, pharmacist, or even
Airline steward—Adrian has a lot to offer and help with her
Although Gina stated she did
not get to choose her destination for the
exchange student experience, she is very happy
with her assignment to Adrian. We are happy to
have Gina as part of our school and community
and wish her a pleasurable experience.

hometown is more modern, so there are
more possibilities to go shopping or go

After coming to Adrian he discovered

staying in the same classroom has been a
welcome change. He enjoys every class he

AHS Senior Project hits students with “real emotion”
In an emotion filled gymnasium, Maddy
Pendergrass used the strongest influence on a
teenager’s choices—their peers—to explain why
making the right decisions is important.
Pendergrass wrapped up the physical project
portion of her Senior Project at Adrian
High School last
week with her Every 15 Minutes production.
“It is good to have this done,” Pendergrass
said. “I have put in a lot of hoard work with a
lot of support from people in the surrounding
communities. I just hope that the presentation
impacted everyone who took part in it.”
Along with the AHS student body, three busloads
of Homedale students crammed into the high
school gym in
to take part in the campaign to raise awareness
of the dangers of drunk driving.
The two-hour program kicked off with a video
depicting three students attending a bonfire,
becoming intoxicated and leaving to pick up more
alcohol. In between the scenes of the teenagers,
teacher Kelsey Zimmerman and students Chelsey
Heller leave the school after a parents-teacher
Following the video, students were ushered onto
Ward Field where a crash scene was staged. The
“drunk driver,” AHS senior Mark Ishida, had
collided with a van driven by Zimmerman.
"I started to tear up while I was out
there on the field during the crash
reenactment,” Ishida said. “This was an
intense situation to be in. Seeing what
could have been real play out on the
field really hit me.”
A recorded 911 call was played
requesting emergency personnel to
arrive. Deputies form the Malheur County
Sheriff’s Office dove onto the track
with lights and sirens running and were

Morton was removed from the hood of the car on a
backboard and placed in an ambulance. Adrian firefighters use a

involved in vehicle accident with drunk driver

“I died that night,” Cassy said. “I don’t care
how you handle it, but don’t get behind the
wheel. You are playing Russian roulette with not
just your life, but someone else as well.”
Cassy Zeimantz spent nearly one month in the
hospital in a coma recovering from the accident.
“I hope that through all the work that went into
this project, everyone who was here learned that
the choices they make have a direct impact on
everyone. (Drunk driving) is something you can
prevent. It is your decision. Why not make the
right decision?” Pendergrass said.

An important lesson

The lives of those who live in a small community
