The students, faculty, administration, and staff lined the halls and filled the gymnasium of Kennett High School on Friday, March 27. Their goal was to create a spirit filled video to be posted on YouTube.
Organized by senior videographers Kiersten Anderson, Lucas Ransick, Heather McDonald, and Tyler Mousley under the guidance of award winning video production teacher Frank Vanderslice, the students lip dubbed to Smash Mouth’s hit “All Star.”
Clubs, sports teams, band members, cheerleaders, and costumed characters danced and made noise as the cameras toured through hallways lined with students and festooned with signs and streamers. The rainy day did not dampen the enthusiasm of the participants, especially the seniors who ended the video with the chant “WE ARE – KENNETT.”

This is the second time that Kennett High School has produced a lip dub video. The last, in 2010, got a modest number of views. The goal this time is to get at least 50,000 views. The true purpose of the event was to encourage students to display their spirit and school pride as they closed out the third marking period and headed into Spring Break.
