COED Hi-Y Attends
Model General Assembly


The Holston High School Coed Hi-Y attended the Model General Assembly on March 27-29, in Richmond, VA.   Members who attended were Sydney T. - Delegate, Skylar H. - Reporter, Kelsey W. - Lobbyist, Tyler S. - Senator, Tanner S. and Billy H. - Underclassmen Legislators, and Sponsors - Ms. Atwell and Mrs. Counts.

The Attorney General, Mark Herring, addressed the attendees Thursday night, at the opening ceremony at St. Paul’s Church, across from the Capitol.  After that concluded, the committee meetings started.  Holston’s bill amended a law requiring anyone who drives a moped on a public highway to have a valid driver’s license.  It was a great opportunity for students to see first- hand how difficult it is to amend a state law.  The students actually met in the Senate and Legislative Chambers in the Capitol Building since Congress was out of session at the time.

On Friday night the entire group of approximately 500 was treated to a banquet and formal dance.  An election was then held for the Youth Governor for next year.   On Sat. all students gathered back at St. Paul’s Church for the closing joint session for final remarks.


 The group also had an opportunity to visit the War Memorial, drive down Monument Avenue, and have a wonderful lunch at the Tobacco Company.  It was a very enjoyable and informative trip!

4-H Club Members Participate
in United Way Service Project


Nineteen members of the Holston High School 4-H club recently participated in a community service project. Club members packed 1800 food bags for elementary students in Russell and Washington counties. This project is a part of the United Way’s “Backpack Unite” program designed to assist elementary school students.

Backpacks Unite delivers nutritious prepackaged food in order to supplement a student's needs over a weekend. Each student in the program receives a bag once per month.  The 4-H club members enjoyed being a part of this program. Not only did they have a chance to help their community, but this also gave them a chance to use their organizational skills to accomplish a collective goal.
