This November, Leadership Week was upon us once again where the whole high school got together for some healthy competition. The point of Leadership Week every year is to show that anyone can be a leader. This year, Leadership Week took place during the week of the 11th through the 15th, and there were twenty-two different teams.
To start off the competition this year we started with trivia. During trivia, each team gets a packet with the questions, answer sheet, and pens. This year there were a total of twenty-five questions. The team that won trivia was Jayson Tatum with five hundred points. The members of that team were Luke Gerlemann, Lauralie Grater, Emilee Hinten, Logan Senecal, William Hellmann, Lydia Shockley, Christopher Wilson, and Carter Ratcliff.
The second event that took place in the leadership tournament was cup stacking. Each team got a stack of cups and also a rubber band with five strings attached. The goal of this game was to build the biggest tower out of cups. The team that won the cup stacking was Imo’s. The members of this team were Parker Gumm, Meagan Holtmeyer, Autumn Harvey, Alyssa Sidwell, Lexi Feldmann, Grace White, Keegan Wiedemann, and Andrew Rethemeyer.
The third and final event that took place in the tournament was tug-of-war. All the members of the teams had to compete and the teams went up against each other. Jayson Tatum never lost a game and went on to win the whole thing.
A question that was asked to students was what is your opinion of the activities we did in the leadership tournament and why?
Senior Morgan Branson said, “They were all pretty fun.”
Freshman Madi McCarty commented, “Well, this was my first time being involved in the leadership tournament due to me being a freshman, but I thought it was interesting.”
Sophomore Destiney Quick said, “They were fun.”
The last question that was asked was what was your favorite part of Leadership Week this year?
Freshman Dominick Cox said, “Tug-of-war because it was a lot of fun. And because you got to see how competitive everyone is.”
Senior Morgan Branson commented, “The tug-of-war is always my favorite. I feel like it brings everyone together and it is fun to see everyone's competitiveness.”
Leadership Week 2019 was a major success.
