South’s open house

A sneak peek into the life of a South student

Parents were given a glimpse of their child’s future educational playground during South’s Open House on Sunday, November 6th. Parents and students both had the chance to take guided tours, explore South’s course load and meet our principal.

South’s Link Crew directed parents and their children on an adventure through South, with visits to the weight room, pool and the currently under construction art rooms.

It was treats galore as parents made their way into Cleminson Hall, where teachers set up exhibits showing off their classes. Parents can ask the teachers any and all questions they have about the school, classes or South in general.

The sound of peaceful Harp music could be heard flowing through the halls. Mikinzi Allen ’24, South’s own talented Harpist, played her instrument, setting the ambiance as parents got a glimpse at what it looks like for a student to excel within their chosen instrument.

Student choir performers sang “Let it Snow” to awaiting guests, showing off South’s amazing Music Department.“Let it Snow” will be performed during Choir’s ‘Sounds of the Season” show on December 1st and 2nd. They captivated parents in the halls, creating big clumps of immovable bodies while drumming up excitement for their show.

Kathleen Wolney, a Michigan native, is considering enrolling her son, Luke Wolney, to South for his upcoming freshman year. Luke Wolney currently goes to Grosse Pointe Academy.

“(South has a) strong art program, it’s close to home and a larger student body,” Kathleen Wolney said.

The Wolney family is also considering South due to our esteemed Special Education Department.

”We plan to find out what services for students here are at South since Luke is dyslexic,” Wolney said

Wolney is a former Blue Devil, graduating in the class of 1997.

“It’s been really cool to see (South’s) improvements and the changes,”Wolney said.

She wants to continue her legacy of Blue Devils with her son, Luke, who hopefully will get to experience all of South’s improvements since his mom attended.

“the school pride that comes along with it,” Wolney said. “Everybody that goes here is super excited to be a Blue Devil.”

Harrison Balfour ’24, Supervising Photographer
If you happen to see Harrison outside of school, chances are he either has a skateboard beneath him or a camera in hand—possibly even both. As Supervising Photographer for the Tower this year, Balfour has a knack for finding and capturing the beautiful moments of everyday life, one that he hopes will someday land him a job with a newspaper publication. For now though, Tower is enough for Balfour, who sees it as an opportunity to tell unique stories and talk to people who have something to say.“I was always drawn to (Journalism),” Balfour said. “I like telling stories and talking to people-- I feel like I just like people.”When it comes to his journalistic work, however, nothing inspires Balfour more than photography.“I like taking photos (and) capturing a beautiful moment that can never happen again,” Balfour said. “It’s a one-time thing that only I saw and captured.”
