Newberry College Theatre Presents Brillant Traces

Jan 20 2018

3:00 p.m.

Newberry Opera House

General Audience: $12.00 - Newberry College Students and Staff: Free


The place is a remote cabin in the wilds of Alaska. As a blizzard rages outside, a lonely figure, Henry Harry, lies sleeping under a heap of blankets. Suddenly, he is awakened by the insistent knocking of an unexpected visitor—who turns out to be Rosannah DeLuce, a distraught young woman who has fled all the way from Arizona to escape her impending marriage, and who bursts into the cabin dressed in full bridal regalia. Exhausted, she throws herself on Henry's mercy, but after sleeping for two days straight, her vigor—and combativeness—return. Both characters, it develops, have been wounded and embittered by life, and both are refugees from so-called civilization. Thrown together in the confines of the snowbound cabin, they alternately repel and attract each other as, in theatrically vivid exchanges, they explore the pain of the past and, in time, consider the possibilities of the present. In the end their very isolation proves to be the catalyst that allows them to break through the web of old grief and bitter feelings that beset them both and to reach out for the solace and sanctuary that only hard-won understanding, self-awareness, and compassion for the plight of others can bestow. 

Run Time: 90 minutes – no intermission 

Fine Arts & Lectures event.

CAST: Associate Professor of Theatre Mandy Butler & Guest Artist George Dinsmore

State Senior High Science Olympiad

Mar 17 2018

Events All Day

Campuswide

Events in the gymnasiums are open to the public.


High schools from around the state of South Carolina are hard at work in preparation for the 34nd annual South Carolina Science Olympiad competitions to be held on the Newberry College campus on Saturday, March 17.  Approximately 350 participants are expected on campus each day as membership in the statewide program has reached record levels.

Science Olympiad is an international nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of science education, increasing student interest in science, and providing recognition for outstanding achievement in science education by both students and teachers.  The Science Olympiad program hopes to bring academic competition to the same level of recognition and praise normally reserved for athletic competition.  The tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of individual and team events which students prepare for throughout the year.  These challenging and motivational events are well balanced between the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, computers, and technology.  The 2017 competition includes such events as Bridge Building, Elastic Launched Glider, Disease Detectives, Fossils, Forensics, Astronomy, and Experimental Design.  Olympic-style medals are awarded to the top four individual places in each event, and team scores are tabulated in order to award an overall state champion.  The winning high school will go on to represent South Carolina at the National Science Olympiad competition to be held May 18-19 at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins, CO. 

Newberry College has been the proud host of the South Carolina Science Olympiad since its inception.  On competition day, events will be held in the Science and Math Building, Eleazer Arena, and MacLean Gym on the Newberry College campus.  The events in the gyms are open to the public and will take place from 10am-3pm.  In addition, the public is invited to the Opening Ceremonies in Wiles Chapel at 9:30am, as well as the Awards Ceremony in Wiles Chapel at 4 pm. 

In 2013, Newberry College began awarding scholarships to South Carolina Science Olympiad event winners.  The winning students in each of the 20 different events at this year’s Division C competition will receive $2000 scholarships to Newberry College.  These awards are stackable from year to year, up to a maximum award of $10,000. 

Piedmont Municipal Power Agency joins Newberry College as a major sponsor of the South Carolina Science Olympiad for the third consecutive year.  Their sponsorship provides much needed assistance to offset travel costs associated with the Science Olympiad program, including funds to allow the director to travel the state and publicize the program, as well as funds to help facilitate travel of the state winners to the national competition.   In addition, event sponsors for the 2018 competitions include McCall-Thomas Engineering Company, Newberry County Memorial Hospital, Newberry County Water and Sewer Authority, and Newberry Pathology.
