Marli Hoskins and Kevin Connor, seniors at Riverside Junior Senior High School, have been chosen to participate in Sen. John Blake’s Student Ambassador Program. The program offers the opportunity for one senior from each of the 17 high schools in the 22nd Senatorial District to learn about citizenship, public service and state lawmaking. “This program offers a unique opportunity for students who may have an interest in public service and who want to make a positive difference in their communities,” the senator said. “I am looking forward to engaging serious young women and men who are interested in the hard work of government and in offering them an insider’s view of the lawmaking process.” Between December and May, student ambassadors will participate in a schedule of events and presentations with the senator and his staff — including time at the State Capitol — and all will compete for college scholarship assistance through the completion of a critical thinking project and presentation.

The Graphic Arts class at Riverside Junior Senior High school recently helped the RHS Maintenance departments solve a problem. Brackets that support the shelves in a shelving unit had broken and replacements were not available. Mr. Chris Feerrar, the Graphic Arts instructor tasked two students, Jared Yates and William Frances, with solving the problem. The students took exact measurements with a caliper and designed a replacement. A 3D printer was used to produce the clips. After several improvements and trails, clips were produced that were stronger and worked better that the originals. Jared and William worked as actual engineers, from design through production, acquiring skills necessary for the career they hope to pursue. Pictured: William Frances, Jared Yates
