On August 28, faculty, students, and the community joined in the new gym for the annual Meet the Eagles pep rally, sponsored by KAY.

The evening started with a free sloppy joe dinner to the first 300 people. After the meal, everyone headed to the new gym for the main events. Organizations and club presidents and vice presidents explained what they do and encouraged students to join. Shea Rothchild introduced himself, as well as the new teachers.

Then the coaches introduced their players and explained what their main focus on the season was. When the sports had been introduced, the dance team gave a performance. Later the cheer squad had some games that involved the crowd, school staff, and coaches.

KAY News Release
Approximately 250 student leaders from across the state of Kansas gathered at Rock Springs 4-H Center, Junction City, July 24-28 for a “superfantasitic” session of KAY Leadership Camp.

At KAY Camp, student leaders representing their KAY organizations, receive organization and leadership training and learn about new and exciting service projects.  They are given the opportunity to meet and share ideas with hundreds of KAY members from all over the state.  Activities during the week include team and mascot meetings, leadership labs, special interest options, creative projects, housing service projects, and recreational activities.  Each evening includes a special activity for campers and staff.

The camp theme this summer was “Set Sail… Leader-Yer-Ship.”  Campers were provided a memorable time as they discovered the potential they have to make a difference as well as the rewards in serving others.  Student campers have the opportunity to develop lifetime leadership skills, lasting friendships across the state, a sense of responsibility and pride as they serve, and an attitude of doing for others because it’s the right thing to do.

KAY student leaders form TCHS attending KAY Leadership Camp this summer were Gavin Garza, Keagan Shubert, Dillon Dunn, Libby Frost, Emma Day, and Cooper Desormiers.  The Club’s sponsor is LaTrisha Flax.
