Senior Ryan Tumminello is a well-rounded student and is a part of various clubs around the school.

Tumminello is the captain of the Varsity Scholar Bowl team, which got second place in Districts, does the lighting for drama department, does the announcements some days and is a part of the History Bowl.

“What I like about Webster is the diversity in our clubs. There was so much stuff you can be involved in and things to do. I do wish Webster offered more classes though, like more cool science classes,” Tumminello said.

Tumminello said he has no idea where he is going to college, but he’s thinking about going to Denver University. He plans on doing something in chemistry. He took AP Chemistry his junior year.

Tumminello has done lighting for the drama all four years. This year, a new lighting board was put in place for the Little Theater.

“It was difficult to learn, but I got used to it. I have to teach Mr. (Todd) Schaefer about all the controls now.”

“Ryan has excelled at learning the art and science of theatrical lighting quickly. He has been a wonderful asset to the tech side of the department by being available to stay late and dedicate time after school for the shows. He is a role model to many of the younger students looking to do tech, and he is a confident and attentive leader in the department. He will be missed next year, and we wish him the best in all of his future adventures,” Schaefer said.

“My best memory of Webster was probably at the beginning during Future Leaders when I saw Mr. (Jeff) Smith, the Latin, teacher jump on top of a bookshelf,” Tumminello said.
