Local students achieve the rank of Eagle Scout

One of our sophomore students at EHHS, Jacob Scheuring, just recently achieved the rank of Eagle Scout within the Boy Scouts of America. Previously, during the summer, Ryan Strawser, also from Troop 237 out of Lyles, gained this rank.

When Jacob relates what inspired him to become an Eagle Scout, he replied, ¨I just wanted to be like my brother [Christian Scheuring, 2022 graduate]. But then I wanted to be better. And so it was like a chain reaction that I was like, wait, I can be better than you. So I did that.¨  He has also developed many skills in the process. Jacob replies, ¨Definitely leadership survival outdoors. Gotta love not dying. Can’t forget not dying. I mean, yeah. Communication skills. Tying [knots], leadership, [and] outdoors. Basic stuff.¨ These are definitely some important skills. 

Every candidate for Eagle Scout must complete a service project. Jacob built birdhouses, Christian built benches in the park and along the trail, and Ryan built picnic tables for the Buford McCord Memorial Park. Because of these service projects, and the other requirements, they were rewarded with the rank of Eagle Scout.

Jacob Scheuring and Ryan Strawser- Eagles now on two fronts!

At the end of the day, the role of Eagle Scout is a great feat to accomplish. If you see either of the new Eagle Scouts in the halls, congratulate them! They went over many mountains to get this feat.

EHHS Senior Walk: The Pathway to Success

On May 11th, 2022, our senior class walked through each East Hickman school. The walk started with the song ¨Celebration¨ by Kool and the Gang. The music played over the intercom to congratulate the seniors on their soon-to-be graduation from their K-12 education. The seniors started walking through the school from the CTE hallway to the front of the building. Then, they loaded onto a buses to travel to the other schools. Overall, the seniors enjoyed being in the spotlight for some of their final moments at East Hickman High School.

PBIS Student Reward Day: An Overview

On the 23rd of November, 2021, many students at EHHS were able to participate in a day of games and rewards for coming to class, getting good grades, and making good decisions. The reward day consisted of a Zombie Hunt as well as video game consoles and board games for students to play while they waited for a spot for the Zombie Hunt sponsored by the US Army recruiter Staff Sergeant Wilson. The English and history wings of the school were cordoned off for this activity to provide ample space for the laser tag.

Additionally, around lunch time, students got to see if they were eligible for a free large Kona Ice coupon. This allowed students to enjoy a free large Kona Ice snow cone during the day. Overall, people seemed to enjoy the break day in which they could take a moment to relax and wind down. Even those students in study halls used this time to work on missing work or conference with their teachers.
