TCHS Students of the Week
By Jamen Dudley
Joe Namath’s quote, “If you aren’t going all the way, why go at all?” is perfect for this week’s Tucker County High School Students of the Week. These students consistently work for the grades that they receive, and they also work to keep their behavior topnotch. Students of the Week are Devin Teter, Jason McGee, Trenton Wilfong, Lilly Callaway, and Gracie Rapp.
Devin Teter is a sophomore and was nominated for always going above and beyond to help teachers and students, for always stepping up and taking charge when a project needs completed, and for always being in a good mood.
Jason McGee, a junior, was selected because he always participates in class, tries his best, keeps his group on track, practices for exams, and improves daily.
Freshmen Trenton Wilfong and Lilly Callaway were chosen for welcoming and extending kindness to new students.
Gracie Rapp, a junior, was selected for taking the lead on all preparations for the FCA nursing home Christmas visit.
These students are to be commended for exemplifying the principles of Mountain Lion CARE: courtesy, attitude, responsibility, and engagement.
TCHS Principal’s Award
By Jamen Dudley
There are three recipients for this week’s TCHS Principal’s Award: sophomore Lilly Plumley, junior Shelby Gooden, and senior Emma Wamsley. Principal Steve Cosner recognized these individuals for their recent robotics presentation to the Tucker County Board of Education. The students demonstrated what their robot could do and displayed the Design Award the TCHS Robotics Team won at the December 8th First Tech Challenge of the WV State Championship at Fairmont State University. The Robotics Team won the Design Award for their exploration of a variety of designs along with thorough documentation and illustration of that process.
New Year’s Resolutions
By Jordan Teter
A New Year’s resolution is a tradition where individuals resolve to modify a certain problem or achieve a personal goal they have. According to Inc. website, sixty percent of people make New Year’s resolutions, but only eight percent are successful in achieving them.
Recently, I interviewed four TCHS students to determine their New Year’s resolutions. Senior Sarah Bates wants to eat healthier, junior Bode Shockley wants to work hard to heal his knee, sophomore Logan Husk wants to work out more, and freshman Andrew Bonner wants to work harder on his house to get it finished. Some of the most common New Year’s resolutions are exercising to lose weight and saving money.
Another year has come to an end, and another is beginning. So, now that the New Year is approaching, what resolutions will you make?
