Northwood Student Council Attend Summer Leadership Workshop



Six Northwood High School students and their advisors
attended the 55th North Carolina Association of Student Councils(NCASC) Summer Leadership Workshop on the campus of Mars Hill College during the week of July 7-11. Student Body President Frances Beroset, Student Body Vice-president Alex Bortey, Junior Senator Sierra Teta, Sophomore Senator Joe Friedman, Sophomore Class Vice-president Justin Bright and Sophomore Class Treasurer Elizabeth Thompson spent the week with other student council leaders from across the state in a series of activities to prepare them for the coming year. All activities revolved around the theme of the workshop: "Sailing the Seas of Success on the LeaderSHIP," the NCASC state theme for 2014-2015.

Changes to Charger Challenge
Starting with the graduating class of 2015, community service hours and job shadowing hours will no longer be required for graduation. We believe that community service is extremely important to both character development and to the development of community leadership and service skills. As such, Charger Challenge will now be a voluntary program for all students. Students who successfully complete 120 hours of community service (100 hours for the class of 2015) will be recognized for their contribution to their community at graduation. Here are the guidelines for the new program:

Class of 2015 – To be recognized, a student must complete 100 community service hours. Prior years’ hours may be counted up to a maximum of 60. 40 additional hours must be completed prior the end of April of the 2014-2015 school year.

All other grades – To be recognized, a student must complete 120 hours of Community Service. A maximum of 80 total hours will be accepted prior to the start of the Senior year which necessitates the student to complete 40 more hours during his/her Senior year.
