Senior Awards Night 2015

Scholarship winners from Mahomet-Seymour High School's Senior Awards Night:


Mahomet-Seymour Class of 2015

For the first time in the school's history, graduation was held offsite—at Krannert Center for the Performing Arts in Urbana. See more highlights from last Friday night's ceremony in this week's Mahomet Citizen.


Board updated on park project

Damien Schlitt of BLDD Architects presented plans for the park at Monday night’s school board meeting.

Schlitt said he had three goals in creating the park: paying homage to Middletown School, recognizing its architect Joseph Royer and honoring the long history of Mahomet.


M-S courting new conference

Mahomet-Seymour High School Principal Shannon Cheek said Monday that the school may be moving toward a breakup with the Corn Belt Conference.

It’s a matter of competitiveness and compatibility, he said—particularly where enrollment is concerned.

“We’re growing,” he said. “Member schools of the Corn Belt are not.”


Kor brings message of forgiveness

Eva Mozes Kor is no stranger to the global spotlight. 

An 81-year-old survivor of the Holocaust, Kor spent years harboring a deep-seated rage against the Nazis who waged the war that led to her captivity. 


Wilson special guest at Bulldog Bash

Celebrity designer Doug Wilson, who gained fame on the TV show “Trading Spaces,” will be the special guest at Friday’s Bulldog Bash, a fundraiser for the Mahomet-Seymour Education Foundation.


11 million, 18 years later

It was 18 years ago that students at Mahomet-Seymour Junior High collected over 11 million pop-can tabs to represent the number of people who died during the Holocaust—and captured the attention of the entire nation.


Planning a park

On Monday night, Mahomet-Seymour Superintendent Rick Johnston gave members of the school board an update on the future of the Middletown site.

The school, located at Division and Main, was demolished last fall after the new Middletown Prairie opened its doors on the east side of Mahomet.


Band headed back to Fiesta Bowl parade

Come January, members of the Mahomet-Seymour Marching Bulldogs will once again be ringing in the New Year in Phoenix, Arizona.

The band was selected to march in the Fiesta Bowl parade, which is held each year in late December.


Veteran's novel picked for reading event

Looking for a good book to read on these snowy winter days? Students at Mahomet-Seymour Junior High have a suggestion.

Each year, members of the school’s Read Across Mahomet-Seymour group pick a book that they hope will interest both young people and adults and challenge members of the community to read it.
