This year’s topic focused on the question: To what extent should Social Media accounts be considered when looking at potential candidates for College Admissions, Scholarships, and Job Opportunities. Students read and annotated several articles, watched news segments, and participated in Socratic seminars, philosophical chairs and debates. Some students did their own independent research! The students were given 45 minutes to write a persuasive essay using evidence from their resources to support their position. Congratulations to this year’s winners:
Joseph Woffard – $150.00 – Freshmen
Andrea Santa Rosa – $200.00 – Sophomore
David Pullido – $250.00 – Junior
Andrea Padilla – $300.00 – Senior

SEXUAL VIOLENCE AWARENESS AND PREVENTION MONTH
In support of Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention month, ASB & Peer Resource hosted our first Clothesline Project Wednesday, during lunch. Shirts were displayed with messages from survivors and those of allies and teal ribbons were handed out in the morning. Students wishing to participate created their own shirts to support the cause of educating others about violence and bringing hope to those who are survivors. On-hand therapists were available as well as a local non-profit.
