This year, the Charlotte Catholic german class attended the annual “German Day” celebration at Chapel Hill, the previous year being UNC Greensboro and Wake Forest the year prior to that. The seniors decided to focus their talents on one event instead of competing in a motley of events like in years past. Each year, a theme is set for all activities in German Day. This year, the theme was “Nicht alle die Wanderern gehen verloren,” which means not all wanderers are lost. Seniors Patrick Newbanks, Melissa Roulier, Benton Lietz, Owen Hall, and Sam Hester performed a political skit on the topic of immigration. Germany is the only country willingly taking in immigrants with open arms, while even the United States falls short to Germany’s compassion towards immigrants. The skit featured Owen Hall as the news anchor, Donald Trump as Patrick Newbanks, Angela Merkel as Melissa Roulier. While Benton did not have a major part in the skit, he was drowned. The skit was masterfully performed, and Catholic Placed 3rd, behind a middle school and Providence High school. The competition may have been fierce, but you can not stop that red machine. Frau Horvath has been attending German Day for years, previously while she worked at Providence High. We were lucky enough to adopt her expertise, scoring us many more trophies than her predecessor Herr Skinner. The German Day tradition is strong, and according to Frau Horvath, the only direction to go is up. With the talent that Charlotte Catholic posesses, we will inevitably win first place in the coming years. A video of the skit was given to The Catholic Chronicle by Benton Lietz, and can be found on our website and on our YouTube Channel. A big thanks goes to Frau Horvath for allowing Charlotte Catholic to thrive in such a rigorous tournament.
