High school and junior high students gathered in the TCHS auditorium to listen to Scott Novasel, a KAY sponsored speaker, on February 21.
Novasel is the author of the book Fieldhouse, a graphic novel that tells the true story of his dreams coming true.
Novasel spoke to students about dreams and what it takes to achieve them. He said there are three ingredients; challenges, positive attitude, and teamwork.
Novasel had always wanted to play for Roy Williams, former KU men’s basketball head coach. Novasel worked hard throughout high school and college to become a walk-on his senior year.
That year, KU won the national title.

Beginning his last days of high school, Trevor DePriest plans to attend FHSU next year to “study something exciting.” However, he is “having as much fun as [he] can” because he wants to get the most out of the time he has left as a high school senior.
Before he heads off to college, DePriest thought about how high school has impacted his life and reflected, “It has made me be a lot more responsible.”
DePriest, looking back at all the classes over the last four years, stated, “Life time sports is my favorite class; it is lots of fun.” English, however, was always a struggle for Depriest since he could never develop an interest in reading or writing.
Reflecting on his high school career, DePriest contemplated what he would have done differently, saying, “I would have tried harder and played football.” Not wanting the underclassmen to make the same mistakes, he gave them the advice to “do your best and always give 110%.”
The TCHS students came to school on Monday wearing their pajamas. Then on Tuesday students went from lazy to fancy on dress your best day.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day Wednesday was red out/fccla shirt day. Thursday students participated by wearing hats to school. On Friday students showed school spirit by wearing school colors on purple and gold day.
Points were awarded to members who participated. Members that earn the highest points can attend State meeting in April.

The purpose behind the BBQ is to allow students from all classes to get together for a small break from the academic schedule and for a chance to bond. "Sometimes January and February seem like a very long and dreary time, so the students appreciate and enjoy the small reprieve from the daily grind," stated Nora Schoenthaler, a Student Council sponsor.
The usual lunch schedule was ignored on this day, and students reported by class, starting with the seniors. This gave the students an opportunity to eat and visit with people they usually don't get to see.
While the students enjoy the lunch, many find the activities to be the best part of the event. As students finished eating, they went to the gym and participated in activities such as basketball, dodgeball, ping pong, and four-square.
Many students declared, "It's like having recess again!"
At the end of the lunch hour, students returned to their classes hopefully feeling a bit more ready to face the normal academic challenges.
