Recently Truman and Kennedy “Class of 2019” Student Council students met with their advisors, Carly Lundgren and Joe Maudlin, and showed they have real "Unity in our Community.”
Students started the day volunteering at our local Gleaners in Taylor. The Truman and Kennedy students mixed together and worked as a team on tasks for the organization.
They then went to Heritage Park and had lunch. Knowing they will be together next year as the first graduating senior class of the newly combined high school, the students wanted to take time this year to get to know each other so they can be leaders and instrumental in making the change a harmonious one.
After lunch, they were led through a series of team building activities to learn more about each other and to learn to work together as a team to accomplish goals, capped off with exchanging social media handles, and even phone numbers if they wanted to.
After team building, they went to the Taylor Community Library and broke into committees to brainstorm ways that the student council can help make the change a positive one for next year.
Today was a huge success. The classes want to thank the administration and Board of Education for allowing them this chance. They look forward to more "Unity in our Community" activities this year.
