On Tuesday, March 5, 160 junior high students from the Western Kansas Liberty League participated in the league band clinic. Students spent time in their individual schools preparing the music ahead of time. When they arrived in Logan, those students worked with clinician Sarah Bricker, Oberlin to put together four pieces of music for a performance that evening. Mrs. Bricker remarked, "What a wonderful opportunity it is for students to come together like this to make music and be a part of a huge band- bigger than their school bands. It is a great way to make connections." League schools include: Brewster, Healy, Tri-Plains, Weskan, Grinnell, Palco, Northern Valley, Western Plains, Cheylin, Golden Plains and Logan.
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 March 1, 2019. Speaking at this year’s induction ceremony was Kodi Van Laeys. She is the daughter of Tim & Robin Van Laeys and she was a 2015 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 2019 were Juniors:
Madison Gottstine daughter of Phil & Janet Gottstine
Camryn Greving daughter of Colby & Cher Greving
Hunter Hogan son of Justin & Debbie Hogan
Toni Jenner daughter of Mike & Nancy Jenner
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 235 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).
Two Logan students, senior Matt Kirkendall and freshman Sam Pinkerton, participated in wrestling this year as a part of a cooperative agreement with Phillipsburg High School. The wrestlers competed in several duals and tournaments throughout the season. For the post-season, the boys put away their blue and gold Panther singlets and wrestled for Logan in the 1A Regional tournament in Beloit. Matt earned his first trip to the 3-2-1A State tournament in Hays where he joined schools from around Kansas on a snowy weekend and placed in the top 10 in the 160 weight class. Congratulations to Matt and Sam, we are proud of you!
