I Can’t Make This Up by Kevin Hart

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart grew up in North Philadelphia. His father was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. His brother was a crack dealer and petty thief. And his mother was overwhelmingly strict, beating him with belts, frying pans, and his own toys. In his literary debut, he takes the reader on a journey through what his life was, what it is today, and how he's overcome each challenge to become the man he is today. Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself. "Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter," he says. "So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?"

SENIOR PORTRAITS

The deadline to turn in a professional portrait for publication in the yearbook is Dec. 6. Seniors must hand-deliver their digital image on a CD to Mrs. Stacy Smale in room 205. For information about publishing guidelines, go to uticahigh.org, click on the "Students" tab and follow the link to the "Seniors" page. You will be able to download "Senior Photo Requirements."
