Last day of school before break? No, it was the filming of a lip dub video. Teacher Brian Wymer saw an online contest for school-produced videos that showcased school spirit in a Pittsburgh newspaper. With the Kane football team still playing in the playoffs, he showed some of his students a few of the submitted videos and challenged them to come up with ideas for a KHS video that would show the Wolves’ spirit. After some class discussions, a couple of students in Wymer’s Multimedia Club, Tyler Blankenship and Justin Westerburg, and the two students who record the school’s morning announcements, Andy Swartwood and Katie Avenali, decided to try to make the video a reality.
