Murphy Career Preparedness Students Address Social Issues

Posted by Melody Ardis in Great News!

Murphy High School Career Preparedness students, under the guidance of their teacher Jennifer Fleming, identified campus social issues affecting high school students. The students first divided into groups and then chose their topic based on social concerns found in high schools throughout the country. Once their topics were identified, each group developed a plan to address that issue at their school. Topics ranged from graffiti and littering to bullying and on-campus fighting. One group chose to address the quality of cafeteria food. The group that addresssed graffiti painted the stall doors in the girls restroom near their classroom.

This project is a great way for students to be exposed to the process of identifying social issues and the process of addressing them.




 Topic:  graffiti


Topics:  littering, campus fighting, and bullying

Williamson Cadets Give Back to the Community

Posted by Frank Barrow in Great News!

Williamson High School's JROTC cadets participate weekly in a community service project whose goal is to connect with the community. On Wednesdays cadets meet with senior citizens 65 and older that are currently living at Boykin Towers located on Michigan Avenue. During this time, residents enjoy sharing their life stories, talents, and job skills. Furthermore they share life contributions, knowledge and experiences that make a real difference in the lives of the cadets.

This weekly opportunity allows for senior citizens and students to bridge the gap in the community and for cadets to learn valuable lessons about giving back and supporting those around you, while also creating and developing new friends.
