American Education Week; High school page program; Saving Wildcat memorabilia
American Education Week, November 11-17

Dear Editor,

American Education Week gives us an opportunity to celebrate the outstanding work being done by our public schools. In addition,†it is a time for us to spotlight the importance of providing every child in America a quality public education! From kindergarten through college, education staff work to make our public schools the best they can be and we use American Education Week to say thank you to all of you!

Sincerely, Cliff Carmody, Executive Director, SW/WC Service Cooperative, Marshall

High school page program

To the Editor,

Applications for the Minnesota House of Representatives 2013 High School Page Program have now been mailed to all area public and private schools.†All high school juniors are eligible to apply.

By taking part in this week-long program, pages learn the legislative process and assist members in the House Chamber during session, and also develop leadership skills by observing how committees are conducted and how issues are resolved.

Sincerely, State Representative Joe Schomacker, Luverne

Saving Wildcat memorabilia

During the last all-school reunion, there was much discontent among former Slayton High School athletes that found none of their achievenemnts left in the gym trophy cases. Word got around that the SHS athletic school history was tossed, making room for a new school history. Itís interesting, none of this dilemma would have come to fruition if the school officials would have walked across the parking lot and presented these trophies to the Murray County Museum. Now, that is water under the bridge, and SHS history became a part of the Cottonwood Landfill.
