Dock Mennonite Academy students, faculty and staff will be featured in an episode of Fox 29's show, "The ClassH-Room," on Tuesday, December 4 at 12 noon.
The ClassH-Room is a trivia-based game show for teachers and students in grades 7-12. Each episode features students and teachers from the same school, competing against each other to try to win funds for their chosen charities. Teams of students from both the Middle School and High School taped the episodes in Fox 29's Philadelphia studio the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Middle School students featured in the December 4 episode include (l to r in photo above) Haley Harper, Marlyse Giesbrecht and Simon Hershberger. The faculty team competing against them included Mrs. Kaci Hunsberger, Mrs. Claire Wanamaker, and Director of Marketing Mrs. Kathy Gordon (a pinch-hitter for for Mr. Michael George, who was under the weather). The High School student team included Louis Cocco, Nicole Ford, and Sydney Leaman, while the High School faculty team included Mr. Ron Hertzler, Mrs. Kathy Kennel, and Mrs. Kellena Smith. The High School segment will air in January. Dock's mascot, Christopher the Pioneer, was also in attendance for the taping.
Dock's visit to the ClassH-Room gave the show a distinctly local flavor, since the game show's host is Richard Curtis, the Souderton Area High School technology teacher who found himself in the national spotlight last year when he won the "Live with Kelly!" co-host competition. Looks like Richard's TV career is really taking off!
Be sure to watch or set your DVR for Fox 29 on Tuesday, December 4 at 12 noon, to see which team wins the Middle School battle, and whose charity (Keystone Opportunity Center for the students, Mennonite Disaster Service for the teachers) will receive a check!
