Envision carolers singing in the streets of London and the joy of Christmas. That was the scene Nov. 17 for Heritage Academy's drama production of “A CHRISTmas Carol Revisited.” The classic “Christmas Carol” tale was adapted by Texas author Sharon R. Manacapilli. Ebenezer Scrooge was played by Collin Poyle and Bryce Nigh portrayed Jacob Marley. Cherie Clarke, Adam Long and Zach Muller played the three angels of Christmas. Under the direction of Mrs. Rohrbaugh, the school's art and drama teacher, the play brought the message of Christ to its audience, while also presenting a fun play to watch.

Going undefeated through the Mason Dixon Christian Conference regular season is nothing new for Heritage Academy. After all, the Eagles haven't lost an MDCC regular-season or tournament match since the 2009 tournament semifinals. Tuesday's 25-16, 25-19, 25-15 sweep of Cumberland Valley Christian capped another perfect regular season for Heritage, an accomplishment even senior star Kara Stamper and coach Young-Sook Anderson have to be impressed by - if not entirely surprised. Stamper had 23 kills, four aces and two blocks to lead the Eagles (15-0, 14-0)

When Heritage Academy began a live broadcast of the morning announcements last year, students had the opportunity not only to learn communication skills, but to develop leadership abilities. The TV lab was the idea of D. Hunter Powell, Heritage principal, and was assembled under the direction of Pastor Allen Robinson, the IT coordinator at Heritage. In the beginning of the program, students already involved in the school's print journalism class were selected to help in the lab. Audra Haddock-Martenot, a digital photography instructor at Hagerstown Community College who has children at Heritage Academy, offered suggestions during the early stages of the program, which is under the direction of journalism teacher Tammy Brewer.
