Chamber Connection for Oct. 15, 2009

E-mail Print PDF

I was so proud of our High School Leadership students. Every single student showed up with a wonderful, willing attitude to attack the Ropes Course.

The class members (pictured at right) were faced with issues of how to get 20-plus students on a 4-foot by 4-foot platform (if that big), how to switch places with someone on a telephone pole, how to get all students through a spider web without using the same hole twice, and then, of course, was the challenge of climbing to the top of a telephone pole and jumping 7 feet to catch a trapeze! Each student brought something amazing to the day, and I think everyone had a wonderful day! I am truly blessed to be able to spend time with each of these seniors!
