Clint was very excited to be a part of Shakey's Place. This will be his first and last year in the ThinkQuest project, as a team member at least. Clint is active in Theatre and Computer science having developed several webpages, most of which are outlined at the Rockhurst Computer Science website. He is currently attending Rockhurst University pursuing a Computer Science major and a Theatre minor, (everyone thinks this is a strange combination, but it suits him just fine!) He would like to thank the ThinkQuest sponsors and staff who really made this possible, Mr. John Biggerstaff for the information and server space here in Lee's Summit, and Clint's Coach Mr. Ben Martin; his mentor, theatre coach, and all-around friend. He would especially like to thank Christina and her parents for their long hours, his parents for the phone line and endless support. I LOVE YOU MOM AND DAD!! :)
Since 1997, when this site placed second in the Arts and Literature category of ThinkQuest, I thought it was completed. As my skills in 3D graphics increased, I realized that Shakey's Place could be a great deal more than I had originally conceived. That is why I took these past 2 years to redesign and retool the entire site, to make the world see what my mind saw that first day Christina, Sarah and I decided to pursue this project. I dedicate my continued effort to that frustrating year of work, the year that culmintated in the greatest moment in my life. I can only hope that you all felt the same way...

Christina L. Obligar is a different kind of individual. She does
not quite belong to any school clique (is she a band geek, drama freak,
school girl, or giggly airhead??), and she can't say that her group of
friends belong to one group either.
After being involved in almost every opportunity availible to her
(drama club, band, school musicals, youth orchestra, tap dancing, ballet,
gymnastics, karate, trumpet lessons, cello lessons, piano lessons, drawing
lessons, painting lessons, cartooning lessons, dog training classes, and
even 4-H) Christina has finally turned to the internet to look for more
opportunities. As a result, Christina has found herself working with her
team leader, (or better described as her Slave Master) Clint Hall (just
kidding, Clint), and team member, Sarah Steele.
Christina has worked hard to complete her tasks, and at the same
time remain healthy in both body AND mind. She hopes that her team wins
a scholarship bigger than Clint's phone bill. (and we DID!) :-)

Christina, please refer to her beautiful, "Masterpiece Webpage".

|My name is Sarah Steele and I'm from Adelaide, South Australia. I attend Wilderness School which is a girls School with 500 students just out of the Central Business District. I have attended Wilderness for 3 1/2 years and before that I went to Seaton Park Primary. I was born in October, 1983. I play Ice Hockey in my recreation time and I love to read. I chose to do this topic as I have always been fascinated by the way that people interpret stories and Shakespeare is one of the most complicated to interpret. My coach is my Information Technology teacher, Mrs Sue Green. My school has students from 5 years old till around 18 years old and we have a wide variety of subjects. I have access to both Apple Macs and IBM's as well as scanners, digital cameras and the internet.|
