Spring Hill High School Hosts Regional Student Council Conference
September 18, 2012
Nearly 500 delegates from around the region attended the regional student council conference that was hosted by the Spring Hill High School (SHHS) Student Council (StuCo). The Sept. 18th event featured a theme of “Treasure Hunt to Leadership,” and guests were greeted by a rowdy group of SHHS pirates when they arrived!
The participants spent the day hearing speakers, exchanging ideas, and sharing successes and challenges within their student council programs. Held annually in the fall, this is the second consecutive year that the SHHS StuCo has hosted the event, which is one of only seven StuCo conferences held in the Kansas.
“As an organization, we were honored to organize the event and welcome participants to our high school,” said Katie George, SHHS StuCo sponsor. “The conference provided an excellent forum for the students and sponsors to share ideas and find inspiration.”
The general session opened with a welcome from SHHS StuCo President Macy Carbajo, followed by greetings from Principal Steve Fleer. In addition, the SHHS Madrigals performed several songs for the group, including the school's Alma Mater. To help warm up the crowd, the SHHS drum line also showed off their talents.
The keynote speaker for this year was Patrick Maurer. He is a speaker, educator and author who focused on the student pursuit for his/her own personal best in school and in life. Combining his experiences as an English teacher with his improvisational performance background, Maurer is presenting to student council conferences around the country.
