Meet senior Jory Micek

A part of the TCHS wrestling team, Jory Micek remains focused and serious in his match against his Goodland rival.

By Taylor Weigel
Upon graduation, Jory Micek plans to go to Cloud Country to study in their Wind Energy Program.  Meanwhile, he plans to make the most out of his remaining time at TCHS by spending time with friends and having fun.

Micek does admit that perhaps at times he had too much fun in high school, stating that he wished he had gotten better grades, paid more attention in class, and made better decisions. 

He enjoyed his weights and lifetime sports classes and advised the underclassmen to get their General Education requirements out of the way so that they can enjoy taking more classes like his PE courses.

Finally, Micek looked back at his time here at TCHS and stated that one memory he would take with him was a painful one.  “I will never forget missing the boxes on box jumps and cutting up my shins, leaving scarsl.



Wrestlers bring home medals from MCEL

Three Trego Junior High wrestlers brought home medals from the MCEL meet held in Ellis on February 15. 

Tanner Sells became the 115 weight class champion by making short work of all his opponents.  Sells pinned both Will Schmidt of Oakley and George Crawford of Ellis. In his third match against Nathan Jaeger of Smith Center, Sells won in a 3-0 decision.  Sells then finished the tournament with two final pins against Clayton Sumner of Norton and Eric Moon of Phillipsburg. His performance earned him top spot on the podium.

Teammate Micah Burk scored the bronze medal in the 85 weight class with a 2-2 record.  Burk defeated Geron Ebner of Phillipsburg in a 7-0 decision and Sam Saltzman of Smith Center by a 5-0 decision.  However, he did fall to Carter Underhill of Hill City and Cohen Kaiser of Plainville.

Owen Day also placed in the tournament bringing home fourth place by defeating Ryan Stocker of Smith Center and Derek Keith of Hill City. 


Guest speaker pays visit to senior class

Sam Polifka speaks about how he was “super lucky” with the job he landed at Lewis Chrysler in Hays Kansas.

By William Wilson
Nan Brown’s Senior English class has been discussing and exploring issues related to secondary education.  As part of the unit, Brown brought in a guest speaker on February 15.

Sam Polifka informed the class about college and gave them a lot of wise and valuable information regarding ways to not only avoid debt, but that it is very common for freshmen in college to change their career choices. He also said that he himself changed what he wanted to go into, five times, just in his freshman year.

Student Carson Cook reflected on the experience.

“[He was] influential. He made me feel like college isn’t needed to be successful.”






KAY honors our veterans

The Valentines for Veterans program gave approximately 50 local veterans free admission to the TCHS basketball game on February 13. Handmade valentines and red remembrance poppies were distributed to the military service men and women in attendance. This service project was a combined effort between TCHS & TJH KAY groups and the local VFW Women’s Auxiliary. 



“Pennies for Patients”

Hunter Folsom appears to just be “hanging around” after students tape him to the wall as part of the Pennies for Patients fundraiser.

The Trego Community High School has spent much of February raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society with their annual “Pennies for Patients” fundraiser.

Students had the chance to participate in “Dollar Days.” For one dollar, they could buy an extra credit pass from a participating teacher.

On Wednesday, February 12, the student body had the opportunity to participate in a school wide activity “Stuck for a Buck.” Students who wished to purchase a piece of duct tape for one dollar could have the chance to tape fellow student, Hunter Folsom to the wall.

At our remaining home basketball games, our StuCo members collected change during the “Chuck your Change” blanket toss. This took place during the half time activities of the varsity boys basketball game. Community members could’ve also donated change to the “change bucket” located at the Project Prom cake raffle table.

All proceeds collected during the “Pennies for Patients” campaign in February were sent directly to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.




Power of physics

Physics at FHSU


Student Valerie Scott experiences the power of physics at an event held at FHSU on February 13.  Scott explained the event.  "Ruchi Bhakta, Bernard Giefer, Clay Burk, and I attended. The students at FHSU demonstrated different examples of how physics works that we could actively participate in. One such demonstration was having participants sit on a stationary stool and have them hold a spinning bicycle wheel. The wheel, when turned, would move the stool and the person sitting in it because of the force of the wheel spinning, and when the wheel turned, the force of the wheel changed directions moving the person. They also showed us several experiments having to do with magnetic fields and lasers. In addition, they had some experiments with liquid Nitrogen. It was a very interesting experience because they provided visual evidence to explain physics as well as verbal explanations."
