Feb. 10, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 13 Soldiers, students create a work of art Story and photos by Samantha B. Koss Special to the Mountaineer Mountainside Elementary School officials unveiled their 15-foot papier-mâché marionette art project during a ceremony at the school Feb. 3. Soldiers of the 759th Military Police Battalion spent two weeks helping the students build the project based on the book “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” “We were so amazed at how much the students did by themselves,” said Capt. Nicole Lopez, 759th MP Bn. “One day we turned our back for five minutes and the children built a whole building by themselves.” The book is about a middle school student and his struggles at school. The Mountainside Elementary School depicted the main character of the book as a large marionette surrounded by buildings and superheroes made out of papier-mâché. “We wanted kids to feel like they are superheroes,” said Lynn Zupans, Mountainside Elementary School principal. “We believe every kid is a superhero.” Zupans has been the school’s principal for the last 12 years and this wasAbove: Mountainside the fourth year of creatingElementary School art projects.unveiled an art “I wish we hadproject based on been doing this Naomi Marshall, co-director of “Diary of athe book “Diary of a project for the past 12 Wimpy Kid” art project, walks through theWimpy Kid” Feb. 3. years,” Zupans said.

Feb. 10, 2012 — MOUNTAINEER 29Mountaineer Athlete of the Week Kyle Dykes Intramural basketball player Kyle Dykes was groomed to be a basketball player from a very young age. His father taught him the game and he made his first organized sports team in eighth grade. He credits his father’s training and his desire to work on his game for making his high school team. What is your favorite personal moment in sports? It was in my eighth grade year when I felt like I had my highlight moment. We were playing in the playoff semifinals, I didn’t play the first half of the game, but in the second half I ended up scoring 25 points If you could change anything about sports, what would it be and why? I would like to see more athletes have to go to college longer. I don’t think you should be able to just do one year in college and then go to the NBA. I think you should have to go to college for four years before playing in the NBA. If you could spend a day with any athlete who would it be and why? Lebron James because of his versatility on the basketball court. He has no weaknesses in basketball because how well he can play defense and, in my opinion, he is the reincarnation of Magic Johnson because nobody can do what he does. What is the one thing you’ve always wanted to do in sports but have not done yet? I want to dunk the basketball. Right now I can grab the rim, but I have to work on being able to get up high enough to dunk the ball. People who don’t know me would be surprised to know that I … love chemistry and everything associated with science. I like to learn about chemical bonds, compounds, saturations and all types of sciences. I think there is always room to learn and especially in sciences where there’s always something else to learn.
