    SHS SENIOR, NASH POTTER, SELECTED FOR BUCKEYE BOYS STATE PROGRAM

    This past summer, Nash Potter was selected to participate in the American Legion’s Buckeye Boy’s State. He went to Bowling Green State University “not knowing what to expect” he admitted.  He ran for the position Ohio State Representative of House and won the nomination from the city of “Balser.”  He worked as committee leader of Veterans Affairs. I wore his suit to “work” everyday which lasted from about 7:30am-5:00pm every day.  Potter stated “I have never experienced such a sense of brotherhood on any other camp I’ve ever been too.  [The boys I met there] became a group of 30 best friends and I would do anything for any one of those guys.”   

    American Legion Buckeye Boys State is an eight-day hands-on experience in the operation of the democratic form of government, the organization of political parties, and the relationship of one to the other in shaping Ohio government.  Founded in 1936, Buckeye Boys State is the largest Boys State program in the nation with an attendance of over 1,200 young men annually, representing nearly 600 Ohio High Schools, several on-line High Schools, and the Home Schooled Community.

    Posted by Dan Mott at 9/15/2014
     Exclamation Point
     
    On Friday, our district and building report cards were released by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). We did very well. Our building received the following grades from ODE: Performance Index - A, Indicators Met - A, Gap Closing - B, 4yr Cohort Graduation Rate - A, 5yr Graduation Rate - A. Our index score was 109.1! This ranks as the 50th highest high school index score in the state and puts us in the top 6% overall. This kind of ranking can be attributed to motivated and intelligent students, a committed, knowledgeable, and caring staff, and a supportive community. Congratulations on a job well done! We all know teaching is more than just test scores, but let’s be honest, it is nice to score well.
