Student Council meets again

On October 26, 1988 Student Council members met to discuss issues concerning our school.

Mr. Treece attended our meeting and made a proposal for each student to take into consideration concerning the trash lying in the hallways and on school grounds. If we, the students, can keep this under control for a period of time we will be able to have a dance during sixth period sometime soon. This has been approved by the central office. So, let’s really try and we will be rewarded for our effort in cleaning up around school.

Morehead clinic

Morehead State University will be sponsoring a band clinic February 9-12 in Morehead. Students who were selected for the clinic were required to send an audition tape to the head of the M.S.U. music department. Many students unsuccessfully tried out from all over the state. However, Whitesburg had five students who were selected to participate in the clinic. Those students were John Chris Hylton, Cyndee Reynolds, Steven Lewis, Jeff Hylton and Johnny Eldridge. The students will leave Whitesburg on the 9th and return home on the 12th. During their stay the instructors will be teaching them various ways to play music and how to make better use of their instrument.
