Students involved with several different organizations were invited to a meeting with Kan. Lt. Governor Jeff Colyer, Kansas Board of Education member Jim McNiece and senator Randall Hardy in the Lecture Hall on March 10.

The three positon holders listened to the students as they explained their many community projects and activities of volunteerism. For instance some spoke about their DECA projects, the diaper drive that is taking place, and the Red Cross club.

“It was cool to hear about other people’s projects,” senior Kara Brooks said. “It was especially cool to hear what the underclassmen have been doing.”

Among the 29 students that attended the meeting, 18 of them were seniors, six were juniors, three were sophomores and two were freshmen. Each of the students in attendance were part of some organization such as National Honor Society, DECA and Leadership Team.

Brooks explained that Colyer really seemed to be interested in what the students were doing and wanted to make sure they knew how important it was to be involved in the community.

“He said that Kansas is the heartland of America and that it is really important for us to be involved while we are in school and afterwards,” Brooks said.

Brooks also mentioned an award that will be given out to a random person by principal Martin Straub to which all students that attended will be eligible for.

“Each of those students are eligible,” Brooks said.

Like Brooks, senior Cooper Flores enjoyed the experience of meeting the three position holders,  Colyer especially.

“I thought the Lt. Governor sounded very passionate about student involvement in the community,” Flores said. “I think he will be a great governor because he really cares about the younger generation.”
