    Two of Medford’s own will be performing at the oldest continu- ously operating theater in the United States throughout October in front of more than 1,000 people.

    Sixteen-year-old Shawnee stu- dent Sophia Chryssofos and 15- year-old Shawnee student Emily Dunn will be performing “Shrek The Musical Jr.” at the Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia every Saturday in October.

    This is a part of the summer camp that Walnut Street for Kids hosts each year.

    Directing this group of 13-17 year olds will be Camp Walnut's Assistant Director of Education Ashley Kerns. Kerns returns to WST for Kids to direct after previ-

    ously directing “Alice in Wonder- land Jr.” and “Seussical Jr.”

    She has been assistant director for several Walnut Mainstage pro- ductions, including Oscar Wilde's “An Ideal Husband,” Agatha Christie's “The Mousetrap” and “Amadeus.”

    Along with Director of Educa- tion Thomas Quinn, Kerns has been instrumental in reaching more than 180,000 students in the

    tri-state area with a variety of  programs established to keep arts in education.

    However, Kerns is specifically excited about the opportunity to direct this young group of actors and actresses.

    “This group is authentically some of the best actors we’ve had on our stage,” Kerns said. “They come very open and ready to work, considering we ask a lot of  them.”

    The campers do a lot of the lit- tle things such as costume changes and behind-the-scenes stuff on their own without any supervision. The group has spent many long hours rehearsing the production over the summer.

    The students of the summer camp perform the show five times during the summer in an inde-

    pendent studio with a smaller stage than the one used on Wal- nut Street. The kids then take Au- gust off and come back together in September.

    “Most summer camps you leave and don’t get to come back together,” Kerns said. “It creates a really united group of really good friends that all love to do

    During last week’s Medford Board of Education meeting, the Medford Home and School Asso- ciation was recognized for yet an- other year of excellence.

    Superintendent Joseph Del Rossi spoke to a few board mem- bers prior to the meeting to brief  them on the presentation he would be giving to the associa- tion, and he described their reac-

    tion as stunned when revealing the figures the organization has been able to reel in.

    “I often walk through our

    schools and notice the places and things that make them very spe- cial. These things could not be possible without the support of  this group,” Del Rossi said.

    Jessica Siragusa was recently named the new president of the group. Siragusa will be replacing Alexis Gosewisch, who was the president of the group through a very prosperous era.

    The Home and School Associa- tion, through fundraisers and book fairs, is able to fund special

    projects for Medford schools. The association believes, “It is

    a result of these special efforts by parent/guardian volunteers that

    our children enjoy an enhanced educational experience," accord- ing to a post on its website.

    This is the 36th year the group has been fundraising and essen- tially directing funds to the prin- cipals to be able to spend on their respective buildings.

    The money raised is donated directly to the principals as money to spend on the kinds of  things they think will make their schools unique places to be and serve the needs of students.

    Over its 36-year life, the Home and School Association has

    Medford Home and School Association recognized for excellence, once again

    It was 2002 at Shawnee High School, and Alex Dupnik was sit- ting in her mechanical drafting class when she realized architec- ture was the field she wanted to pursue.

    “I had always really been in- volved with art. I took a lot of art classes but that was the first point it was not just art, I was intro-

    duced to architecture,” Dupnik said. “I fell in love with that class.”

    Dupnik is a Shamong resident whose high school days took place while Seneca High School was being built in 2003. She had the choice to go to the new high school but decided to stick with
