WMS Energy Expo

Mr. Bowling's 7th grade science classes at Wurtland Middle School hosted the first annual Energy Expo.  Student teams researched various types of renewable and nonrenewable energy resources. Each team constructed a display board, a digital presentation and a 3-D model of their assigned resource.  Team members served as teachers as they welcomed students from Wurtland Elementary to tour the exhibit.  Students who toured the expo were given questions/information packets to complete as they took the tour and teachers were given resource packets with possible extension activities concerning energy resources. 

JROTC Celebrates US Marine Corps Birthday!

Happy 241st Birthday to the United States Marine Corps! Our GCHS JROTC program celebrated the birthday with a cake cutting ceremony and words from two very special guests: Harry Bunyan and Jack Knuckles.

Harry Bunyan
is a member of the "Chosin Few". In November 1950, during the coldest winter North Korea had experienced in 100 years, U.N. forces, most of them U.S. Marines from the 1st Marine Division, were surprised by China’s entry into the Korean War.  Surrounded and outnumbered 8-to-1, the Marines embarked upon a 78-mile journey to the Sea of Japan to reconnect with American forces. The journey would take 13 days. Cut off from support, the Marines were still able to fight their way through 10 Chinese infantry divisions.

Jack Knuckles is a Marine Veteran who served in WWII in the Pacific Campaign. He participated in the Battle of Okinawa - the last battle during the pacific campaign prior to the dropping of the atomic bombs on Japan.

We were also joined by our own Lt. Col. Vance Huston, retired Senior Marine ROTC Instructor at GCHS for nine years.  Lt. Col. Huston’s impressive military career includes piloting Helicopter Squadron One for three US presidents.

Thank you to our Marines, and all our members of the armed forces, past, present and future!
