Student Council Climbs the Hill - Mars Hill
The week of July 7-11 was an action packed week for the Student Council of Central Academy of Technology & Arts. Students loaded a bus on Monday, July 7 with students from Cuthbertson High and Sun Valley High to make the 3-hour trip to Mars Hill University. Dr. Adam Tarlton, English teacher, was accompanied by nine students from the Student Council executive board in a week long excursion to “Sail the Seas of Leadership.” Students began their days at 7:00 am and ended around midnight. Throughout the week students attended resource areas, joined in council delegations, and even were elected officers within their councils. As the week went on, activities grew larger as students completed a round of Leadership Activities and the Leadership Olympics. The week focused on the idea that leaders can also be followers and how students can learn to be active followers just as active leaders.
