Cassville community members Jamie Lee and Skyler Bowman identified a problem and decided to take action and help. This summer, these women worked with local students to compile bags filled with feminine hygiene products for young women at Cassville Intermediate, Middle and High Schools.
In addition to purchasing supplies, volunteers asked their Facebook friends and family to contribute to their cause and were able to gather enough products for over 100 bags for Cassville students and approximately 30 bags for students at Exeter School.
If a student needs a bag, they can ask any female teacher on campus. All female teaching staff have them available at all times.
If you are interested in helping Lee and other volunteers with this worthy project, find them on Facebook under the group name "Fighting the Scarlet Crusade."
CMS student, Kristen Stough, adopted this mission as her Family, Career and Community Leaders of America event last year and won a club medal.
Cassville High School Seniors Vance Supulver, Andrew Littlefield, Andrew Berndt, Colton Moore and Zylin Jung were five of the 915 outstanding students across the state of Missouri that were selected to participate in the 79th session of Missouri Boys State.
Boys State was held June 16-23 on the campus of the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg. These students were selected based on their leadership, citizenship, academics and character during their junior year at CHS.
Boys State is a pure democracy in that all citizens may vote and are eligible to hold office. The program is designed to educate and train Missouri's young leaders in functional citizenship, leadership and government.
Boys State participants spend eight-days studying the operation and fundamentals of the government by "doing," not just learning. Using our democratic system as a basis, participants, or citizens, construct their own state, utilizing the core values that hold true in our everyday lives such as the need for competition, the value of public service, the strength of the individual voice and vote.
The Boys State staff is comprised of educational, legal, professional and civic leaders who volunteer their time. Missouri Boys State is a 501(c)3 organization and is a Missouri American Legion Program. CHS students were sponsored by our local post, American Legion Post 118--Cassville.
Berndt is the son of Kurt Berndt of Cassville, Moore is the son of Donna and Kerry Moore of Cassville, Jung is the son of Beverly Jung of Cassville, Supulver is the son of Toni Sumners of Cassville and Littlefield is the son of John and Sheila Littlefield of Cassville.
Cassville High School has earned a bronze ranking from US News and World Report and has been named one of "America's Best High Schools."
US News and World Report ranks schools based on their performance on state-required tests and how well schools are able to prepare students for college.
The first ranking list was compiled in 2007 and has since grown into an annual program. The goal is to provide a clean, unbiased picture of how well public schools serve their students--from the highest to lowest achieving--in preparing them to demonstrate proficiency in basic skills as well as readiness for college-level work.
SEDALIA, Mo. - The Cassville FFA Chapter was chosen to represent the Missouri FFA Association in the Hall of States this October during the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. Only one chapter from each state earns this honor.
Cassville FFA accomplished this because members worked this summer to design and build an educational booth for the Missouri State Fair in Sedalia. The students’ booth titled, “Just one piece of the puzzle; Come home to Missouri FFA,” won first place and a trip to the Hall of States. The display highlights the different types of agriculture found in Barry County. We rank 1st in poultry production, 3rd in beef cattle production, and have thousands of agritourism visitors every year enjoying the natural resources at Roaring River State Park.
The FFA members also interviewed several agricultural leaders in our area and produced a video to educate the public about the different pieces of agriculture that make up the Barry County puzzle. The video was incorporated into the educational display and viewed by thousands of visitors at the 2018 Missouri State Fair. FFA members interviewed Terrell Varner and he explained the day-to-day process in his 8 house turkey operation; Drew Henbest described buying, selling, and feeding cattle at his feedlot; and Brad Farwell with Roaring River said, “Agritourism is essentially the reason this hatchery is here.” The fish hatchery releases approximately 260,000 fish each year into Roaring River and annually draws 400,000 visitors to fish, hike and camp in the park.
Cassville FFA is hoping to set up the students educational booth in local businesses to allow Barry County citizens the opportunity to enjoy the display. If your business is interested in hosting the booth for a 1-2 week period in September please contact either Jimmy Hinson or John Littlefield at (417) 847-4610 or email email@example.com
