MANUFACTURING TRIP

Friday morning, November 4th, 116 students from Advanced Manufacturing, Computer Sciences, Engineering, and Welding traveled to Toyota Material Handling in Columbus, Indiana.

These 9th through 12th graders were immersed in Toyota’s focus on time management, efficiency and continuous improvement as they visited eight different departments that oversee human resources, training, IT, maintenance, welding, distribution, design, and engineering in the 1 million square foot facility.

Toyota hired several Scottsburg 2022 graduates and plans to return in the spring to interview interested Seniors.

The Maverick Challenge

On Thursday, November 3rd, the Scottsburg High School Maverick Challenge in the Media Center. This year Mrs. Cox's and Mr. Sim's Principles of Business classes had an opportunity to participate. Seven groups were selected to compete for the school competition. Those groups were: BrOcean Bracelets (Felix Walker and Linzey White), BM Folds (Rayden Berry and Connor May), Jewelets (Isabelle Marcum and Gracie Kelly), Foster Designs (Emily Foster), Recwares (Katelin Conder, Hunter Campbell), 0 - Weedz (Joshua Reardon, Cale Barger, Rikelme Pinto-Herrera), and Grib Glob (Garrett Boiling, Jace Luttrell).


Each group presented their project ideas to community judges that consisted of Jonathan Morgan, Jennifer Coward , and Perry Hayes. Based on the presentations, the judges selected Recwares as the SHS 1st place school winner, and they will receive $200 for placing first. 2nd place went to BM folds, giving that group $100 for their placing. 3rd place was Jewelets, and they will receive $50. Both Recwares - Katelin Conder and Hunter Campbell, and BM Folds - Rayden Berry and Connor May, will go on to the County Maverick Competition that will be held on January 18th, 2023 at Mid America Science Park, to compete against Austin High School's top two teams for a $500 prize, and a chance to move on to the Maverick Challenge Regionals.


SHS is very proud of all seven teams who presented in the school competition. Each group had great ideas to start their own business, and we hope these students continue to pursue this path in Entrepreneurship with their ideas and groundwork from this project and competition. Recwares will be at the Kiwanis Craft Fair this Saturday to launch their first sales opportunity publicly.

Student Council 5K

On the Friday before Fall Break, the SHS Student Council and the SHS National Honors Society sponsored a 5K run to benefit the construction of a school in Tanzania. The groups partnered with the organization Remember the Children to carry the SHS values of Worth, Growth, and Safety across the globe.


Over 300 SHS students and teachers took part in the run/walk 5K that circled the SHS campus. The 5K raised over $1800 for the school - an amount that will be doubled thanks to a matching grant obtained by RtC.


The Student Council and National Honor Society would like to thank everyone who participated and donated. We'd like to give a special shout out to CORE Construction - the team handling the SHS building project - for their donation.

Scottsburg High School Named Apple Distinguished School

Scottsburg High School is pleased to announce that it has been recognized as an Apple Distinguished School for 2022–2025 for its mission to guide students onto chosen paths so that each student will have a brighter future. Students and teachers must know where they are going. Guided by our core values of worth, safety, and growth, teacher leaders ask: What do our students need in order to be prepared for their next steps? Our Apple technology teaching and learning environment is the beautiful landscape that surrounds our path to our brighter future.


Apple Distinguished Schools are centers of innovation, leadership, and

educational excellence. They use Apple technology to inspire creativity,

collaboration and critical thinking in learning, teaching and the school

environment, and have documented results of academic accomplishment.

SHS will continue to provide unparalleled opportunities for students to launch into successful futures. We provided training opportunities for our staff in the spring of 2022, such as GarageBand, Keynote, and becoming Apple Certified Teachers.


The selection of Scottsburg High School as an Apple Distinguished School highlights our success as an innovator and a compelling learning environment that engages students, and provides tangible evidence of academic achievement. Students’ MacBook laptops provide endless opportunities for creativity, research, and collaboration. Because SHS students have been immersed in a digital learning environment supported by Apple technology since elementary school, they have developed familiarity with the possibilities of each application and productive workflows that allows them to navigate the digital tools and platforms that best meets their needs.
