EXTRA INFORMATION

Kimberley Guthrie

New to the S E K area, artist Kimberley Guthrie portrays a “tongue in cheek” approach to humor with the characters she creates. Her goal is to make you “laugh out loud” or at the very least-smile.

Kimberley was a classically trained artist attending the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, Texas and secondary schooling at the University of Colorado in Boulder and the Institute of Art, Lacoste, France. While previously known for her intricate Fresco Style murals, she currently focuses her creativity on whimsically themed oil paintings and new techniques for portraiture. Also a particular love is creating 3 dimensional works using Paper Mache.


On a sunny, day she may be seen with her gouache paints in the countryside painting “Plein Air”. Wave or honk as you pass by. If you know Kim or run into her at her studio, you will know that she usually paints in her pajamas and pretty much everything she owns is pajamas. She gets paint on everything and will recite her motto “yur not havin fun n-less you get it on ya”. From the look of things, she is having a blast!


FRC Team 5730 is a rookie FIRST Robotic Challenge team started at Monett High School but also incorporated students from the Scott Regional Tech Center, so the team is made up of 15 area students. The students received their challenge for 2015 season on January 3, 2015 and had 6 weeks to design, build and program the robot to meet this years challenge, "Recycle Rush". This robot has to pick up, move, stack totes as well as stack trash cans on top of totes with or with out the pool noodle. The pool noodle can be thrown on to the opposing teams side by a human player for additional points.


FRC Team 5730, known as the "Professionals" competed March 25-28th at the Oklahoma City Regional with 62 other teams. The robot competed well for a rookie team but did not make it into the final rounds. FIRST organization also distributes various awards and the Professionals were awarded the "Rookie All-Star" Award. This award is not given at every regional, but at the judges’ discretion. They were thrilled to receive this award as there were 5 other very qualified teams competing for the award. Along with the award the team advances to the FIRST World Championship in April 2015 at St. Louis, in the Edward D. Jones Dome, along with 600 other teams from around the world.


Landon Stark of Stark Magic, magic with a twist of comedy!
