Friess and Hedrick take on basic training

posted Oct 13, 2017, 9:40 AM by Clarissa Snow

As junior year ended and senior year was approaching, many students started applying for scholarships and different colleges. Seniors Andrew Friess and Christian Hedrick had their minds set on the military, and they went to basic training this summer. Friess and Hedrick both went to basic at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo. They were gone for 11 weeks.

“The living conditions were very close together, but the food was pretty good,” Friess said.

There were many requirements needed to pass basic, including throwing a live grenade, marching 12 miles while carrying heavy bags on your back and passing a Physical Training test.

“The hardest part was not being able to see my family,” Hedrick said. “My favorite was getting to throw a live grenade.”

At the end of basic training, both Friess and Hedrick had a graduation ceremony that their family and friends were all able to attend.

“It was pretty lit; I got to wear my uniform,” Friess said.

When senior year ends, both Friess and Hedrick will go to Advanced Industrial Training. Hedrick will go to AIT for six weeks and then to Pitt State University, while Friess will go to Fort Sill, Okla., for his AIT for five weeks, then to Fort Hays State University.

Two students from CSHS attend summer leadership program

posted Oct 10, 2017, 10:09 AM by Karley Mooneyham

Working to become a better leader, a good first step toward leadership, is what junior Lexi Fisher did last summer by attending the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Program. This program was set up to help young women and men who thrive to be better leaders and to be better people in general.

“You had to have a real mentality to want to be a better leader to attend,” Fisher said.

The leadership seminar was held in Manhattan at the Kansas State University campus, and each school could only send two participants from their school; those from Conway Springs were Fisher and junior Travis Wilson.

“It was a really cool experience to stay on campus in the dorms,” Fisher said.  “It made me feel like I was in college almost.”

HOBY was a three-day program that lasted from June 1-4. After getting settled on day one, day two was an introduction day explaining what the program was going to consist of, day three was how to act as a leader and day four was different methods to spread leadership around and promote people to lead better.

“I figured out my leadership color was blue, which represents that I’m not as outgoing as others but still have good leadership qualities,” Fisher said.
