SLHS plans new developments to share diversity, pride, success stories

Tuesday, December 19, 2000

Storm Lake High School is looking for new ways to share some of the success stories going on within its walls, from celebrations of its ethnic diversity to unique student achievements.

One effort in the early planning stage is a new kiosk which could be built in the student center to serve as a showcase for the positive achievements of the school and its students.

"This comes out of a building goal we have had in recent years to do a better job of promoting all of the good things about this school and what its students are accomplishing," Principal Mike Hanna said. "We would like to have a multi-sided kiosk that could be part information center, part a display area for the students, part a celebration of our diversity. This would not be something static, like the showcases of athletic achievements basically are, but something that would never stay the same."

Hanna said that the school staff has noticed that the student center serves as a magnet for visitors, and that they tend to congregate around the existing showcases used for art projects. "We would like to have a way to feature some of the students and their skills. We really want to celebrate our diversity too. We would like to be able to show how different students came to be in Storm Lake."
