(R)evolution runs Thursday through Saturday—February 8, 9, and 10—at the Larimer Center for the Performing Arts, and promises to be both a celebratory retrospective of dance in America and a rumination on how history learned through words and images doesn't tell the whole story. Senior Sophia Cutrubus described the show as tracing the evolution of mainstream dance while demonstrating how the art provided "an outlet to express ideas and emotions that were taboo and threatened power structures in each time period."
Alumnus Nick Fontaine '17 learned skills as a senior in Alisa Poppen's AP Biology class that, a few months later, helped him research the rare and deadly ebola virus as an intern with the Kay Lab in the University of Utah's Department of Biochemistry. "It has been an amazing experience," the Rowmark Ski Academy postgraduate athlete said just halfway through his Kay Lab experience. "I've already learned so much about different research procedures and how professional labs operate."
One October morning, students in Dr. Fiona Halloran's Advanced Topics US History class engaged in a lively debate about whether Thomas Jefferson or John Adams was the best candidate for president in the election of 1800. Scribbling notes and whispering—preparing their rebuttal while the other side spoke—students displayed passion, conviction, and fierce competitiveness about a contest decided over two centuries ago. After one young woman asked how John Adams could govern the country when he couldn't control his own party, the stunned silence in the room quickly dissolved into laughter. The students' enthusiasm was contagious, and as they dispersed after the bell rang, their energy remained high.
Media executive and philanthropist Dr. John C. Malone and his family started the foundation in 1997 to enable motivated students to attain scholarships to top independent schools, according to the foundation website. These students must also demonstrate financial need—without the Malone Scholarship, they'd lack the resources to attend an independent school. At Rowland Hall, the $2 million endowment each year provides a total of $100,000 in scholarships for six students in grades seven through twelve. Once a student earns a Malone Scholarship, it follows them through their Rowland Hall career. Since 2011, the program has helped 12 Winged Lions attend our institution.

The Rowmark Junior Program, comprised of three teams, has committed hours of mental and physical conditioning work to prepare for the upcoming race season yet. The student-athletes are ready and excited for the snow to fall.
Train daily for a month. Focus on even the smallest details to shave milliseconds off your time. Travel across the country to a race. Crash right out of the gate. Your weekend's over. It's a seemingly discouraging chain of events for ski racers. But it primed Hank Shipman '13 for perseverance after a near-fatal Rowmark Ski Academy car accident April 9, 2011.
It was a fun fall season for all six of our Middle School Athletic teams. Thanks to all of our athletic families for your support throughout the season and a shout out to thank our Middle School Boosters for providing every athlete with a team T-shirt to show some spirit during the school day. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated coaching staff who put in countless hours to develop our student athletes. Please read on for a recap of each team's season highlights.
The statistics from Rowland Hall's championship girls soccer season are impressive. They ended the season with an 18-0 record. They scored 168 goals, a new state record, and surrendered just six—three of which were in the championship game. Nearly every member of the team, including the goalkeeper, scored at least once during the season. And even the junior varsity team only lost one game this fall.
For Eric Oehlerich, Aspen Sulte, and Terri Kindness, service is a way of life. It's not hard to understand how their intense schedules, along with acute knowledge of the risks they face keep them focused on living each moment to its fullest.

The Varsity Baseball team turned more double plays this spring than they have in the previous five seasons combined. "That was huge," new Head Coach Mac Estrada said. "To see the progression of kids actually knowing what to do in certain situations, and having the quickness to be able to do it." And that's just one statistic that shows the team's momentum.

For the first time in its eight-year history, the University of Utah Center for Medical Innovation's Bench-to-Bedside (B2B) annual competition included one high school—Rowland Hall. The program has spawned over 150 new health-care technologies and is designed to introduce medical, engineering, and business students to the world of medical-device innovation. The opportunity for Rowland Hall students to participate in B2B arose when the center reached out to local high schools. Rowland Hall jumped at the chance—and jumped high enough to win the Best Young Entrepreneur Award worth $500 at B2B April 3, and one of three grand prizes worth $5,000 each at the High School Utah Entrepreneur Challenge (HSUEC) April 15.

As the end of March approaches many Rowmark Academy skiers are still hard at work, competing in numerous race series and championships all over the country. The skiers enjoyed light Utah powder this year, which is always a blast. The Rowmark U19's encountered some challenging course conditions and raced in snow, rain and fog. This group has a very demanding travel schedule and the level of competition on this circuit is always top notch. The U16's have a comparatively less demanding travel schedule, but the level of competition on this circuit this year has also been high. Even with tough competition, our student-athletes grabbed podium and top ten finishes in all series.
