Middle school cheerleaders collect money, food supplies

Cheerleaders from Frenship and Terra Vista middle schools volunteered during August to “Stuff the Bus” for the annual South Plains Food Bank school supply drive.

FMS cheerleaders filled four barrels and collected more than $300.

TVMS cheerleaders collected two barrels of supplies and more than $200 in cash.

Both squads of cheerleaders volunteered at the United Supermarket at 82nd Street and Frankford Avenue on separate weekends.

Last year, more than 4,000 children were provided with school supplies by the South Plains Food Bank drive.

Families are referred to the food bank by their school principals.

FHS teacher attends business education leadership institute

A Frenship High School teacher was selected by the Texas Business and Technology Educators Association as a delegate to the annual Mountain-Plains Business Education Association Leadership Development Institute.

Janet Flusche was a delegate at the institute held in Rapid City, S.D., June 17-20.

The Mountain-Plains Business Education Association is a professional business education association and includes business teachers from nine states — Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming — and two Canadian provinces.

Based on leadership potential and professional endeavors in education, two to three delegates are selected from each state.

The institute focused on leadership qualities and skills, communication techniques, meeting and convention planning and an inside view of regional, national and international business education.

Delegates were awarded with a certificate and recognized for their leadership potential at a luncheon at the meeting.
