2016 Massillon Tiger Baseball Camp
The Massillon Tiger Baseball Program will be hosting a youth camp on Saturday, March 5, 2016 in the Paul L. David Athletic Training Center at Washington High School. Coach Ridgley and his staff are very excited to offer you a skill specific camp concentrating on proper throwing and fielding mechanics in the first part of the camp, and proper hitting mechanics in the second part of the camp. Many of the drills are drills that we have our high school players doing on a regular basis. Our future Tigers will have the opportunity to participate in numerous hitting and fielding drills, as well as be introduced to our philosophy taught at varsity level.

Prepared for Success Dual Enrollment Percentage
The Dual Enrollment component of the Prepared for Success of the Ohio Department of Education Report Card was reported incorrectly as being 0% for Washington High School for he second year in a row. This component measures the number of students who receive a minimum of three college credits during their time in high school.

We are in the process of determining how the error occurred having repeatedly contacting the Ohio Department of Education since the results were reported. 

The Dual Enrollment component of the Prepared for Success for the Washington High School should have been reported as 11.31% of the 2014 graduating class. We are working diligently to determine how the error occurred. Again, the Dual Enrollment percentage should have been reported as 11.31%. Our expectation is that this percentage will increase yearly. 
 
Andrew Gillogly Receives Silver Key Award

Congratulations to Andrew Gillogly, who was recently named a recipient of the North East Central Ohio Scholastic Art Competition Award. Andrew will be awarded A Silver Key in recognition for his outstanding work in the area of two-dimensional Visual Art. The selected work titled "Cheetah," represents the animal in its natural habitat. Andrew's work will be displayed at the Kent State University Stark Campus from January 19th through February 3rd. 

At the young age of 4, Andrew took an interest in drawing cartoons and animals. His love for art only continued as he grew older. When thinking about his favorite type of art, it is hard for Andrew to choose just one type. He enjoys everything from painting to digital designs. 

"I like to design whatever is inspiring me at the moment," said Gillogly. 

During his time at Washington High School, Andrew's favorite course has been AP Art. He has been in this class that Andrew has been given an opportunity to create a 24 piece portfolio displaying his artwork. 

After high school, Andrew plans to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design to major in Animation and minor in Business. He is interested in pursuing a career in Concept Design, which involves designing characters or set pieces from the very beginning. 

Be sure to stop by the Kent State University Stark Campus now through February 3rd to view Andrew's award winning piece of art!
