Spring Band Concert

Our community was entertained with sights and sounds on Thursday night with the Spring Band Concert. Families and friends congregated in the packed gymnasium for amazing musical performances by our talented Titan band students, led by Mrs. Kevelin. It was a fabulous show that even included the additional entertainment of a lobby art show with the creative work of our art students displayed by Mrs. Stewart! There is a lot of talent and hard work coming to fruition this time of year at Odyssey. Way to go Titans!

Titan Senior Class of 2024

Andrea McNeal

Andrea, who goes by Andy, has attended Odyssey since 3rd grade. They participate in concert and marching band serving as historian, woodwind section leader, band captain, and drum major.  They have known Mrs. Kevelin for six years and loves being in her class because as soon as they enter the band room, they feel all their troubles leave and is proud of the band’s progress over the years. They are dual enrolled at Eastern Florida State College and will graduate with their Associate of Arts degree in pre-med, and will be attending UCF Burnett Honors College with a full ride. Cooking is also one of Andy’s interests, and they plan to join a cooking or baking club in college while double majoring in Music Education and Biomedical Sciences.

Keyannah Starr

Keyannah has attended Jr/Sr for the past two years.  She has been involved in Musical Theater and Art.  Her best Senior year memory is being with her friends; her favorite teachers are Ms. Griffith and Ms. Widmer.  After graduation, Keyannah will attend Keiser University to become a registered nurse.

Logan Held

Logan has attended Odyssey since first grade.  He played Varsity basketball for four years and liked being part of a team that was so committed.  He says they always pushed each other to be better.  His favorite memory of Senior year is Senior Night for basketball because it was great having friends and family in attendance.  Logan is currently dual-enrolled at Eastern Florida State College and is studying health science.  He was accepted to several universities and plans to complete his Associate of Arts degree at Eastern before he ventures off to earn his degree as a physician.


They are expected to arrive on campus very soon* and will sell out when they do. Order your copy ASAP!

$55 Order here: https://www.balfour.com/student-info?smi=107864.

If you've tried that link recently and it didn't work, please try again. They turned the ordering off recently, but we asked them to turn it back on since they are delayed w/ the shipping.

*FYI - The yearbook printer apologizes for the delay. They had a machine break down causing a back up and missed their deadline of end of April. They said they'd try to deliver end of next week and if any seniors miss getting theirs in time that they will ship to your house. They also promised to send autograph sheets next week that you can use to get signatures and then put them in your book when it arrives. They said they are very sorry and it was out of their control.
