FFA Banquet Highlights

This past Friday night the Scottsburg FFA chapter held their annual chapter banquet in the SHS commons. They had a fantastic turnout of 125 people. The night began with a meal prepared by advisors Mr. Ken McMichael and Mrs. Vangosen, along with many volunteers and students who made side dishes and desserts. Following the meal, the awards ceremony began. Awards were given out to a number of different Ag students and FFA members. A representative of the state officer team, Derek Berkshire, even visited as a guest speaker. Awards and recognition were given for events the chapter has participated in throughout the year such as, district contest, University of Kentucky field day, and area livestock and horse judging. Many individual awards were also given for particular traits exhibited by FFA members and Ag students throughout the year. New members were sworn into office. To end the night, senior Bailey West retired her jacket, and both advisors gave their comments on a very successful year.

French Club Gets Cultured!

Our trip to see Beauty and the Beast at Butler University in Indianapolis was absolutely amazing. We left the school around 3:30 after school and went to Steak and Shake to eat. We sat together, and I think it was a great bonding experience for us all. When we got to the theatre, everyone couldn't wait for the show to begin. We all had been waiting for a few weeks for the show, so when the lights started to dim and we finally heard Belle's voice, it was like all the anticipation was over. We were actually watching Beauty and the Beast! The show lasted for a few hours; though to us, it felt like it didn't last nearly long enough. The performers did a great job throughout the entire musical. One of my favorite parts was when they sang "Be Our Guest." You could tell they put so much effort and careful planning into all of it to make it a great performance. When the Beast turned into a human again, there were flashing lights and nice effects so that it felt like you were actually there with him when he transformed. After the play, I think it's safe to say all of us thought it was worth the money and the wait. It exceeded my expectations, and if I were given the chance, I'd go back in a heartbeat! Seeing a French story played out this way as a Broadway musical was a great experience. Bravo!
