On Nov. 16, Student Council attended their annual league Stuco meeting in Medicine Lodge at a church’s family care center. The purpose of this meeting was to bring up new ideas for schools and the importance of community involvement. Medicine Lodge had multiple speakers talk about volunteering and career choices for the different StuCo groups.

“We learned about lots of opportunities to volunteer, and they told us about the fire that happened and the good community involvement that happened,” junior class president Lacey Pauly said.

The lead speaker was Captain Casey Wolfe, a member of the U.S. Army stationed at Ft. Sill, Okla. Capt. Wolfe spoke about his experience in the army and how he had volunteered for medical trials on his damaged foot. Sergeant Hall, a National Guard recruiter, spoke on how beneficial it is going into the military. There was a Red Cross/Salvation Army speaker, Pastor Tom Walters, and he spoke about giving food and participating in volunteer work at his church after the Anderson Creek fire. An EMS speaker, Trudy Mayfield, spoke about her experience coming from Austria and working as an EMS responder for so long. The last speaker was a volunteer fire department worker, Pat McCollough. Mr. McCullough spoke on his own volunteer work and how humbling the experience is for him.

“I’m glad that I joined (Stuco), “ freshman class president Karlee Osner said. “It was a really cool experience.”

Stuco worked with many different schools to discuss community involvement and give each other ideas to bring home. While members was there, they broke into different groups and listened to the speakers with breaks in between.

“I loved working with our own council and other schools, ” senior member Marcus Berntsen said.
