DIGHTON HIGH SCHOOL ADVOCACY DAY, JANUARY 13, 2017
On Friday, January 13, Dighton High School students spent the morning listening to some awesome speakers and getting tips on the best ways in which to ‘advocate’ for a cause and make a difference! Dighton, Ks has produced many individuals who have stepped up and lead Kansas in various roles. Click on this link to a blog article “All Roads Lead to Dighton" written by Dr. John Heim, KASB Executive, which tells of those Dightonians and what a difference they have made. Later this Spring, Dighton High Schools' own 9-12 grade students will get the opportunity to travel to Topeka to present and advocate for their chosen cause to Kansas Legislators.
It was a great morning of students’ learning how to present themselves and their cause!! Students also learned from each speaker that they CAN make a difference and they do have a voice and can affect change!
After lunch, Pre-K-12 teachers and the Dighton Community got a chance to listen to Dr. Randy Watson, Commissioner of Education, about his vision of the future of education in Kansas. A special thanks to the following speakers for spending the day with the students, teachers, and community!!
Dr. Randy Watson, Mr. Rod Haxton, Mr. Gary Sechrist, Mr. John Polzar, Ms. Sally Cauble, Mr. Derek Schmidt, Mr. Dave Heinemann, and Mr. Keven Ward.
