The Hilliard City School District will partner with Mr. Larry Jaeger, President of Hunter Education Capital, to seek private revenue sources for stadium renovations at Hilliard Darby and Hilliard Davidson High Schools. Renovations will include the installation of turf fields, scoreboard replacement, and locker room renovations.
“Hilliard is one of the last suburban districts in central Ohio to have turf at all our high schools,” shared Dr. John Marschhausen, Superintendent. “In the Ohio Capital Conference Cardinal Division, Darby is the only field that isn’t turf.” By upgrading the playing surface not only will it improve game play, it will increase opportunities for practice, use by the marching bands, and community activities.

Late last month over 200 singers performed at the Hilliard Bradley High School Fall Concert and Symphonic Robing Ceremony. The high school welcomed the 6th Grade Choir from Hilliard Station to perform 2 pieces on their own and a combined number with the entire Bradley Choral Program. The students performed a repertoire of varying styles and genres. The Hilliard Bradley Choral Department performed 8 pieces, and robed the incoming members in the top choral ensemble, Symphonic Choir. This was a wonderful collaboration between the two Hilliard schools, and close to 800 family members, friends, and community members were a part of the audience that evening. Read More
The Hilliard Davidson Orchestra will be on the road showcasing their talents at two upcoming music conferences. The first will be held in Cleveland in February for the Ohio Music Education Association State Conference. At this prestigious event, the Davidson Orchestra will perform for Music teachers from all around Ohio, including several university ensembles and professional groups. The group will then travel to Pittsburgh in March for the National Orchestra Festival and the American String Teacher Association National Conference. They will compete for a national ranking with schools from across the country. Both conferences required an audition for participation, but only a small percentage of auditioning groups were selected. These opportunities will give our students the chance to engage in the fine arts and receive valuable feedback to better their musical skills and give them a chance to interact with performance ensembles from across the country.

On October 31st, our three High School Theatre groups teamed up for a great cause. Hilliard Bradley, Darby and Davidson theatre students participated in the International Thespian Society’s Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program. This program is a national community service project for student members to collect canned and dry goods for local charities. The Thespian students from the three schools collected 1685 pounds of canned and dry goods for the Hilliard Food Pantry. Ready for Tomorrow means working together to give back to the community today.
