IMPACT BANK'S SEPTEMBER & OCTOBER 2021 Students of the Month!
Congratulations CRUSADERS!
On Saturday, October 23, the Crusader Marching Band attended the Central States Marching Festival hosted by Kansas State University. The students attended a clinic held by members of the K-State marching band staff and had the opportunity to perform on Memorial Field at the campus in front of peers and clinic organizers for review and critique.

Sophomores at WHS participated in REALITY U on October 14.  This annual event teaches students financial literacy by simulating the month in the life of a 26 year old.  Students are given a profile (including marital status, number of children, occupation, salary, debt, etc.) and must provide for all their needs by going from station to station manned by student and community volunteers.  Thank you to all the volunteers and to IMPACT BANK for sponsoring this valuable activity!

The WHS Debate Team, coached by Kurt Sherry, recently traveled to Coffeyville for DEBATE ACTION and came away with some medals!!

Claire Norris and Rachel Ewing placed 4th in the novice division. Riley Anderson and Philip Starnes, placed 1st, with a 5-0 record on the day! Awesome Crusaders - way to represent!  

Remaining team member names are pending.

IMPACT BANK is sponsoring a new program this year at Wellington High School. It is called - "KINDNESS COUNTS"!

Here's how it works!

There are multiple staff members at WHS that have been selected as "anonymous observers". (they don't even know who the other observers are) Their task this school year, when they observe a student exhibiting KINDNESS, in any variety of ways, they will nominate that student for recognition, and in turn, IMPACT BANK will award the selectee, for their display of "KINDNESS", a $25 Gift Card!

We have our second IMPACT BANK "KINDNESS COUNTS" winner for this school year at WHS, and this is why she was nominated.

When taping a KWHS newscast, there is limited time and occasionally, a wrench or two can get tossed into the works, if you will. On Tuesday, that very thing happened. One of the main anchors was unexpectedly absent, and that can cause numerous script issues, last second shuffling of multiple assets, and other problems.

A young lady, not scheduled to rotate into the NEWSCAST class until next week, heard of the unplanned dilemma, and without any time to review the scripts, without any prior instruction or experience in front of the KWHS news camera and teleprompter, Sophomore Kendall Janzen volunteered without hesitation, to fill the void and the "show went on"! She even had the chutzpah, to quickly rearrange her schedule, as she was to attend a meeting in just a few minutes, elsewhere.

"Kindness" can pack a punch of positivity. Just like a rock that hits the water and sends ripples in all directions, that one voluntary gesture to step up and help, had a similar ripple effect of positivity on the issues at hand that day. IMPACT BANK knows that about "kindness", thus their sponsorship of such a program.

"Kindness" has a way of bringing us together and moving us forward. Thank you Kendall Janzen and congratulations for this recognition - you are awesome! Thank you Sophomore Class President Kate Haines for making the gift card presentation to Kendall!

IMPACT BANK is sponsoring a new program this year at Wellington High School. It is called - KINDNESS COUNTS!
Here's how it works!

There are at least "4" staff members at WHS that have been selected as "anonymous observers". (they don't even know who the other observers are) Their task this school year, when they observe a student exhibiting KINDNESS, in any variety of ways, they will nominate that student for recognition, and in turn, IMPACT BANK will award the selectee, for their display of "KINDNESS", a $25 Gift Card!

We have our first IMPACT BANK "KINDNESS COUNTS" winner and this is what he was observed doing.
The selectee was in the hallway, and introduced himself to a sophomore, who was walking down the hallway alone. The selectee walked up to the quiet and somewhat introverted underclassman, and asked his name. He introduced himself, shook the sophomore's hand, and having recognized the name, he told the sophomore to be sure to say hi to his older brother. This interaction with an underclassman, in such a manner, probably made the sophomore feel just a little more at home as the school year was getting started. It is commendable that a schoolmate, would greet him in such a way and afford him that feeling.

This same selectee, recently stepped up in one of his classes, to assist another classmate, when her "project partner" couldn't be there to assist with their class presentation. Without hesitation, our honored Crusader today, immediately volunteered to help with the presentation, averting a potentially embarrassing or awkward situation for the student.

The KIND person we speak of, in such high regard is SENIOR JACE BARTON!!
 
On behalf of IMPACT BANK, we are proud of you Jace Barton. You are an awesome young man. Presenting Jace with his $25 Gift Card from IMPACT, is the WHS Class of 2022 Class President, Trey Greenlee. His assistance with the presentation was most appreciated - he did an awesome job as well.

There are many GIFT CARDS to award this school year CRUSADERS - be KIND and the next gift card, might "IMPACT" you! GREAT JOB JACE - Thank you Class of 2022 President Greenlee!
