Four students from Logan High School were inducted into the membership of the Logan Chapter of the National Honor Society in a ceremony held at the USD #326 auditorium on February 23, 2018. Speaking at this year’s induction ceremony was Cynthia Bressler. She is the daughter of Heather Stamper-Voss & Phil Bressler and she was a 2014 LHS graduate and a National Honors Society member. Members were selected by a majority vote of the Faculty Council for meeting high standards of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.
Students inducted in 2018 were:
Matthew Kirkendall, son of David and Donna Kirkendall
Elsie Prather, daughter of Brad and Nova Bates and Leon Prather
Makenzie Jansonius, daughter of Lonnie and Laura Jansonius
Lane Stapleton, son of Ted and Crystal Stapleton
National Honor Society members are chosen for and then expected to continue their exemplary contributions to the school and community. The Logan High School Chapter has been active since 1968 and currently has inducted 231 members.
The National Honor Society ranks as one of the oldest and most prestigious national organizations for high school students. Chapters exist in more than 60 percent of the nation's high schools and since 1921, millions of students have been selected for membership. Millions of dollars in scholarships have been awarded to senior members since 1945 by the sponsoring organization, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
Students enjoyed FFA Week February 19-23. On Tuesday FFA members invited the 6-8th graders into the library and talked to them about official dress, what FFA is about and means to them, and their individual SAE’s. They held a coloring contest for K-4th graders with the winners earning engraved pencils from the engraver, Gatorade and snacks. On Thursday, the FFA members participated in Ag Olympics. Their teams competed against each other to see if they had the skills of a farmer. They had to find a penny in a haystack, shear the sheep, milk the cow, and rope a steer. Dana Grammon from American Family Insurance came on Friday morning and gave the FFA members donuts and juice as a thank you for all they do for the school and community.
On November 29, four students from each grade in Logan High School spent the morning taking standardized academic tests. The subject areas of those tests were: Math, Social Studies, Reading, Science and Written Expression. On that same day students from other nine schools in the Western Kansas Liberty League were taking the same tests. Consequently, there were 40 students in each grade level taking each subject area test. Today we will recognize our Logan High School students who took the test and those who placed in the top 10. Those who were in the top three have earned a league medal. The scores from all five of their individual subject areas are added together to obtain an overall score. Those in the top three will also be recognized with a medal from the WKLL.

The LHS Scholars' Bowl team competed Saturday, February 10, at the State Championship Tournament in Ransom. Team members Makenzie Jansonius, Tiffany Horn, Bodey LeRoux, Matt Kirkendall, and Riley Stockman competed in Pool A with the top three teams moving on to the championship round. They finished the competition with a record of 3-2. They defeated Golden Plains, Grainfield/Wheatland, and Kiowa-South Barber. They lost to Wetmore and Linn. This put them in a three way tie for 2nd place in their pool. When the first tie break rule was applied, all three teams had a 1-1 record in play against each other, so they remained tied. The next tie break rule is margin of victory. When this rule was applied, they again were all tied. It came down to the 3rd tie break rule which is total points in competition against each other. Unfortunately for the Trojans, when this rule was applied, Golden Plains and Linn advanced and Logan was eliminated. Leading scorers for the Trojans were Matt Kirkendall with 70 points and Bodey LeRoux with 50 points. The team was excited for the opportunity to participate in the state tournament and had a terrific day. With three of the five members of the team returning next year, they look forward to a chance to return to the State Championship!
