The annual leadership breakfast, hosted by Student Council, was held Tuesday, November 17, in the art room. This week is Leadership Week at New Haven High, so the leaders of all the clubs and classes in the school were invited to attend a pancake breakfast to celebrate their accomplishments.
This year, freshmen members Andi Wideman and McKenzie Munsinger of Student Council were invited to cook the food with Mrs. Katie Borcherding, StuCo advisor. This didn’t exactly go as planned. Mrs. Borcherding says “I had some trouble flipping pancakes at first because I tried to make them too large. I also roasted the pecans until they were completely black. It was disgusting. My mistake.”
Chocolate chip, blueberry, and regular pancakes were served, along with strawberries, bananas, and whipped cream. Beverages included milk and orange juice.
FCCLA Treasurer Emily Moreno also enjoyed the breakfast. “The pancakes were well made and delicious.”
Student Council president Lauren Bergner is proud of how the breakfast went. “It was a great breakfast,” Bergner says, “my chocolate chip pancake was delicious.”
Many students attending the breakfast were overjoyed with the extra leftovers as well. “I brought home a gallon of milk,” Bergner says. “Well, actually, I didn’t bring it home, it’s still here at school. I’m going to finish it next hour in teacher aide.”
Riley Otten was also spotted walking out of the breakfast toting an entire bunch of bananas.
In regards to the leadership here at NHHS during Leadership Week, Mrs. Borcherding says, “It's great to have so many students to help out with weeks like this. It takes a lot of work to make this week successful. I have had so many kids stop by my room this week to see if they help with anything- not just STUCO kids. The students at NHHS are always eager to help. They want to see progress and they want to participate. I don't think you get students like that at every school.”
Keep leading with grace, NHHS!
