4/15/2014 HighSchoolCube News: Mother-daughter duo paying dividends for Oak Lawn
Oak Lawn badminton coach Patricia Casey just needed to hear it from someone else. Juggling her coaching duties while trying to see her daughter, Melissa Greiman, play at Plainfield South as a freshman, Casey thought she was not giving either side the attention it deserved. “We really tried where I was coaching here, and she was playing in Plainfield,” Casey said. “I was upset because I felt like I was shorting people here and my daughter. I was torn between coaching and being a Mom.” But then Casey heard the advice that helped make her situation that much easier. “Another coach said ‘Watch your daughter play. Don’t feel guilty about watching your own kid play because it goes too fast,’” Casey said. “It was good advice.” So after her daughter’s freshman year at Plainfield South, Casey decided to move from Plainfield to Oak Lawn, allowing Melissa to transfer and play badminton with her Mom as her coach.

OLCHS has committed itself to educating its students with 21st century technology. Teen Tech Week, formerly known as National Library week, will take place April 7 through April 11. The Media Center staff has teamed up with the Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Club to host an entire week of technology informed and literary events. Throughout the week, students will learn some STEM facts during announcements. On Monday, guest speaker Don Lincoln will speak during all lunch periods in the Media Center. Don Lincoln is a senior researcher at Fermi Lab and an adjunct professor of physics at the University of Notre Dame. Don has also contributed to TED-Ed Talks concerning the topic of "dark matter." He is described as communicating with a personal touch and has given many lectures around the world. His background, however, is not unlike many of the students from Oak Lawn: he comes from a working class background and was the first person in his family to attend college.
