Good News About Our Students

Student Council and Writing Knights

On April 4th, eight students from Student Council and the Writing Knights took a tour of the Kansas City Star. They were introduced to the printing press and were able to understand the transformation of the newspapers over the decades. Students asked intriguing questions about how editors proof-read the papers upside down and backwards and inquired about summer internships.

Thanks to our two guides, Darryl Levings and Bill Tammeus, for showing our students the building and treating them to Christopher Elbow Chocolates. We also would like to thank the five amazing chaperones who accompanied us as well.

On Friday, March 31st the 20/20 Leadership members provided the junior girls with an opportunity to attend the uplifted "Girl Empowerment" program.
On Thursday, April 6th, our scholars presented their project (PowerPoint) before a select group of community businesses at the Sprint Campus, Overland Park. First place is a $500 prize given to the 20/20 Leadership members with the goal of continuing the project/service the next school year.

Teens will have the opportunity to sit down, ask questions and talk one-on-one with representatives of law enforcement, including crime scene investigators, evidence response team members, hostage negotiators, and cyber crime investigators. Attendees will also be able to see up close some of the capabilities law enforcement has and learn about possible career opportunities.

The program is sponsored by the FBI in partnership with the United States Attorney’s Offices, Western District of Missouri and District of Kansas; the Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas Police Departments; and the FBI Citizens Academy Association.

For more information, or if you have any questions, please email at
