"DOLSON 31" WILL HANG FROM THE RAFTERS ON DEC. 21: JOIN US!

Posted December 5 at 2:14pm

Minisink’s pride will be on full display on December 21 in the high school auditorium when the athletics program retires the basketball jersey of #31, Stefanie Dolson.   

 

Before playing professionally for the Washington Mystics, Dolson, a 2010 MVHS graduate, led Minisink to four straight sectional basketball titles and remains the highest point scorer in the history of Minisink’s varsity basketball (boys and girls).

 

She went on to lead the University of Connecticut to two NCAA National Championships and was the sixth overall pick in the WNBA draft. Dolson earned All-Star status in 2015, and plays professionally in Europe during the WNBA off-season.

 

On December 21, at approximately 6:15 in the high school gymnasium, the athletics program will retire Stefanie Dolson’s jersey. The ceremony will take place between the JV and Varsity basketball games against Kingston.


Many of Dolson’s teammates are expected to join us in honoring her many accomplishments. The athletics department invites the community to make this a very special evening for someone who has made us proud many times over, and continues to be an inspiration to our student athletes.

AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE NEW APPAREL & FASHION DESIGN COURSE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL

Posted November 28 at 2:43pm

Creative minds are always after breakthroughs. With the inventiveness and industry you can expect from a 20-year veteran art teacher, a year ago Sylvia Morais began asking herself how to bring something fresh to the art department at Minisink Valley High School.

 

“I chipped away at the idea of art as an exclusionary, rarefied experience to identify art as something that is part of our lives, viable and marketable,” Mrs. Morais said. Her vision would pave the way for two new art classes now being offered at the high school: Apparel & Fashion Design and Textiles. 

 

Twelve juniors and seniors are currently taking the apparel and fashion design class. They were drawn to it for disparate reasons, and their sewing experience varies from none to skilled. But for some the class is also a window of possibilities into the multi-billion-dollar fashion industry and market.
