Blount High School DECA students participated in a video competition sponsored by the Council for Economic Education. The program is called Gen i Revolution. The competition was to complete 15 “missions” and then create a new mission about financial literacy.
The winning entry of the CEE Choice Contest was created by a team of five students (Christian Harrell, Darrell Smith, Gabrielle Williams, Johnny Stoute and Nekeem Tinsley) of M.T. Blount High School in Eight Mile, AL. Allen Merryman, a Career Tech Teacher at M.T. Blount, served as the team’s sponsor.
The team’s Mission topic is the importance of insurance. Their mission looks at the types of risks that a young person may face—such as health concerns or purchasing a car—and explores the possible ways to protect against that risk.
Blount’s video was so good that Gen i Revolution will use their idea for the 16th mission for the next competition.
The local chapter of the Iota Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., Beta XI Chapter sponsored the Louverta Williams Keyboarding Competition on April 30, 2014 at Vigor High School. Ten students participated in keyboarding applications activities in Microsoft Word. Students also took traditional timed typing assignments. Those students with the fastest speed and fewest mistakes were the winners.

Mary G. Montgomery High School successfully competed in the first ever “Raider Team Challenge” sponsored by the MCPSS JROTC Department. The event was held at Blakeley State Park and consisted of three grueling events…a Physical Fitness Team Challenge, a Litter carry in conjunction with a land navigation course, and a tug of war contest which was the grand finale. MGM took home the second and third place trophies while a team from Satsuma HS took first place. Despite terrible weather conditions the day and evening prior to the competition, the weather conditions were perfect for the event! Congratulations to all of the participants! We look forward to hosting this again next school year!
