Honoring Those Who Died In 2007
Most years, I make a slide show, remembering those who
passed away in the previous year. Click
Here for the show. How many do you know?
Zach Davis Wins Stock Contest!!
Zach (I can pick'em) Davis won the 2007 Economics Stock
Contest by earning over $13,000 in just an 8 week period.
Congratulations Zach!! Other top performers were 2nd Emily
Kellogg, 3rd Logan Farrington, 4th Joe Nehring and 5th Thom
Olson. Last Place cellar dweller was Lucas (what day is it?)
Moser, who almost went wire to wire in last place. This was
a great bunch of competitors and we all had a lot of fun
competing. The entire official standings are below.
Another Really Bad Song
Yes, another really bad song has been discovered and it has
made it's way to the Tryon University Music Department's
list of forgettable songs. The new one MADE the TOP Forty in
the 1950s. Go to the Music
Department and enjoy........
University Sponsors Trivia Team!
For the last year, Tryon University has sponsored a top
notch Trivia Team of 8 members. We compete in the Nevada
City Trivia Contest and have done quite well. We have had
numerous team members, mostly this year's seniors. Members
include: Kurtenbach, Handsaker, C.Smith, M.Smith, Brausche,
Guthrie, Leeper, E.Wilson, Lloyd (Captain) and I am probably
leaving someone out. This year (2006-7) there are 4
contests. Twice we have finished in 5th, just a question or
two out of the money. This is against over 30 of the best
teams in Central Iowa. Go Cockers!! (It is fun to whip the
other teacher teams. (Like Thompsons, Freys, Lloyds,
Uhlenhopps, Niblocks and that dark haired TAG lady with the
funny last name....)

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You....
The faculty of Tryon University is honored and humbled to
have been nominated and chosen as the recipient of Allied
Insurance and WHO TV's Golden Apple Award. Even though the
TV story only appeared for a couple of minutes, early in the
morning, many old friends and colleagues have been
contacting me in disbelief. I would like to thank all of
those who cheered, clapped and shook my hand that day, it
was a memory I will cherish forever. Words could never
express my gratitude. No, I have not sold it yet on eBay.
Yes, it was such a shock, I was speechless, which as you
know is very rare. Thanks again for all of the nice things
said by the wonderful students of NHS. Click Here for the story I wrote,
explaining the event to my family.
To Tryon University! Where the basic American values of rugged individualism, private
ownership and freedom are emphasized! Where the freedom that allows
ordinary people the opportunity to do extra-ordinary things is
practiced and where each student is encouraged to pursue life, liberty
and happiness as they see fit.
This site is still under construction and may never be completely
finished. Enjoy.....Mr. T.
