Eureka High School Class of 2009 Senior Night Production of “Welcome to Pawlickan Bay” is a Huge Hit

Eureka High School Senior Class night is when members of the graduating class put on skits that parody views, depictions and portrayals of teachers and administrators in a humorous and mordant manner. I must say it was one of the “memorable” nights of my career as the student depictions of the Instructional Leadership style of “Warden Pawlick” were hilariously accurate. What a hoot!!!!!! Special Thanks to teachers cum laude for putting in the extra hours for our seniors:
Mr. “Necktie” Staiano, Mr. Olson, Mr. “New Jersey” McLaughlin, Ms. “Bored at Home” Baugh, Mr. Shrecengost and Mr. Middlemiss. Kudos goes to Drew Ross (EHS 2009) in the role of Warden Pawlick. “My door’s always open….”
