Mason HS Prepares for Community Volunteering
Wednesday, October 9, 2013 • Posted October 9, 2013

As the second six weeks of school starts, students are finally settling in to the routine. With that routine comes school work, extracurricular activities, and leadership/volunteer opportunities.

Shortly after school began at Mason High School for the 2013-2014 school year, the senior class elected officers. The representative board includes Claudia Canfield, president; Price Ruffin, vice president; Caroline Hudson, treasurer; Jackie Drazan, reporter; Coby Velez, parliamentarian; Cassie Benefield, recording secretary; and Catelyn Felts, corresponding secretary.

As Senior Class Officers, they work to collectively organize the annual Blue Ribbon Service Day.The service day serves as a chance for all the students at Mason High School to actively participate in the betterment of the Mason Community through progressive jobs dispersed throughout the city of Mason. In this act, they hope to inspire the student in life with a challenging and fun environment, while proactively volunteering to increase the improvement in their community.

Additionally, the Service Day normally has only filled half of the students school day going from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., yet this year the officers and support team are aspiring for a full day of volunteering! With this goal in mind, Senior Class Officers are arduously striving to find, within the community, adequate opportunities for the high school students.

The Blue Ribbon Service Day is set for Tuesday, November 5, 2013, going from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with an hour break for lunch. On that day, Mason High School Students will be seen traveling throughout the community actively and happily volunteering.

If you know of a volunteer opportunity for Mason HS, please contact the school at 325. 347. 1122. The due date for such activities is Friday, October 11, 2013.

In addition, the Senior Class Officers would like to thank Mrs. Nesloney, HS English teacher, for helping guide them in their efforts. Also, they would like to thank the School Board, superintendent, principal, and counselor for giving them this great opportunity for community involvement!
