CALHOUN MIDDLE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS FIND THEIR “SPARK” AT STARS WORKSHOP

 

STARS Students

 

On November 5, 2015 Calhoun County had the honor of hosting the Regional STARS (Super Teens Achieving Regional Success) Workshop.  One hundred twenty six students from six counties (Calhoun, Jackson, Pleasants, Roane, Wirt and Wood)  in grades 6-12 gathered at the Brooksville Baptist Family Life Center to sharpen their leadership skills.  The welcoming remarks were given by Timothy Woodward, Calhoun County Superintendent of Schools.  The keynote speaker Jackie Martin, Westbrook Health Services, spoke with students about the importance of finding your “sparks” or passion.  Sessions provided throughout the day covered topics such as leadership, teambuilding, goal setting, and maintaining good mental and physical health.

 

The students enjoyed learning new skills, sharing ideas, and making new friends.  Each STARS team was challenged to go back to their community, identify a need, and then plan and execute a service project dedicated to meeting that need.  Students will gather again in April to share their service projects with other teams and celebrate the impact of their hard work.

 

Calhoun Middle High School STARS Team is composed of the following fifteen students in grades 6-12:  Mason Bailey, Bronson Bennett, Savannah Cunningham, Aleah Dye, Ben Frederick, Kenneth Harrison, Brandon Keener, Dakota Laughlin, Jimmy Parsons, Rhiana Radcliff, Dylan Rush, Josh Schoolcraft, Destiny Wager, Brandi Whited, and Shaylah Wilson.  Our STARS Team is unique because it combines both middle and high school students on one team.  We have eight new middle school STARS members this year.  The new members have done a fantastic job of stepping up to this new challenge and the high school members  have done a tremendous job acting as mentors for the new members of the STARS team.

   

Mrs. Terri Goodnight would like thank Westbrook Health Services, Stella Moon and Teresa Harper at RESA 5, and all of our special guests that took time out of their busy schedules to come and speak with our students.  She would also like to extend a special thanks to Joyce Williams and Brooksville Baptist Church members for opening their facilities to our youth, generously giving of their time, and helping us make this an incredible event for our children.
