WHS Drama & Forensics Attends "DEMO" @ State Fair!

The WHS Drama and Forensics students and their instructor Caitlin Hendrix attended the Kansas State Fair this past week. The Fair holds two days of Debate and Forensics Demonstrations for students from across Kansas. These "demos" are hosted by Sterling College, and the students are given the opportunity early on in the semester to witness what a true high school debate looks like. They practice "Flowing" during the debate and then discuss the cases and how to improve their own before tournaments begin in two weeks!

WHS FFA Students Spend "Hands-On" Day @ KSU Livestock Birthing Center

Taima Graves, Annika DeJarnett, Andi Dry, and Moriah Lyne worked at the Kansas State Fair in the Livestock birthing center on Tuesday September 12.  The students taught young and old fair goers how a calf was born and had them help pull a fake calf from a fake cow.  The fake cow helps to train vet students at Kansas State University the right way to pull a calf.  The calf can be twisted and turned around in the fake cow so that students get a "real" feel for what may happen in the real world.
