Twelve students join the ranks of the Quill and Scroll society By Christy Bruck •.. co-editor The Harlan Community High School chapter of Quill and Scroll, an international honorary society for high school journalists, con- ducted a candlelight induction cer- emony, May 16, at seven o'clock p.m. in the HCHS library. Active members of the HCHS Quill and Scroll chapter are Sheree Schmidt, Jeff Kenton, and Tami Heller, all 1988-89 seniors. Twelve new members were in- ducted. Those inducted for their work on the Cyclone newspaper staff included juniors Amy Hen- drickson (Mr. & Mrs. Ron), Christy Bruck (Mr.& Mrs. John), and Jayne Pauley, (Mr. & Mrs. Jerome). Members inducted for their work on the Harpoon year- book staff included junior Jim Lapke (Mr. & Mrs. Jerry), and seniors Julie M. Gaul, (Mr. & Mrs. Dennis), Connie Blum, (Mr. & Mrs. Ed), Larissa Holtmyer (Mr. & Mrs. LaVern), Kathy Keane (Mr. & Mrs. Eldred), Amy Mosher (Mr. & Mrs. Ron), Teresa Schechinger (Mr. & Mrs. Robert), Toni Weihs (Mr. & Mrs. Wilfred), and Janet Wingert (Mr. & Mrs. Alfred, Jr.). In order to become a member of Quill and Scroll, a student must be a junior or senior in high school; must be in the upper third of his/her class scholastically, either for the year of nomination, or for the cumulative total of all his/her high school work; must have done superior work in some phase of journalism or school publications; and must have been recommended by the publication advisor or pub- lications governing committee. The Quill and Scroll induction ceremony is conducted by the publications advisors and current members.

We, the Cyclone staff, would ike to thank the Harlan Newspa- pers for the cooperation they give us with the Cyclone page.

Many times, though, Payton said that he must take on an entire subject and teach it at a level the student is able to understand• English, math, social studies, and science can be taught in this way. The students receive the same amount of credit that the students in the regular classroom would receive. The student's grade doesn't rely on tests alone, either. Their cooperation, attitude, and effort are considered when a grade is given. Another aspect of the Multi Cat- egorical with Some Integration room is the job skills and on-the- job training that the students re- ceive. The job skills lessons deal with writing resumes and filling out job applications• This is an in- class activity, whereas the job training is when students get out into the community and work. While they are freshman and sophomores, the students work in the kitchens at HCHS, Westridge Elementary, New Park Elementary & the Middle School. "This is not an easy job. It's more of a challenge," Payton said. When they became juniors and seniors, they go out and work in the community. Students, for in- stance, are employed at Hardee's, Area 13, Time for Tots, the Bap- tist Home's kitchen, and with the J me HCHS prograrns ¢Y blendrickson those students who are working are in need of remediation.

Mainly it is to help im- prove poor reading skills, improve study habits, and help those who can't keep up with the main flow of the class. Students must be referred to this program by either a parent, a teacher, or they may refer them- selves. The students are tested physically, academically, psycho- logically, and are observed in a normal class setting by the support staff of the Area Educational Agency. This is all discussed in a meeting between the parents, teachers, administrators, and an Area 13 personnel to determine the IEP (Individual Education Plan). The IEP is a contract, which is written at the staffing, that the parents must sign• Long and Fox- hoven must follow the outline which details what type of help the student is to receive• Long is working with students in this room all day, while Foxhoven works half days at both of the middle school and high school. Once the student begins going to the resource room during the free periods he has throughout the day, Long utilizes methods and materi- als which would help the students be more successful in regular classes. "The work we do in here is mainly to help the students get or- ganized," Long said. The students are helped with the basics, as well. They are tutored in their class work and hel with that and Foxhoven occasionally take an entire subject and teach it to a stu- dent who has either failed the class before or couldn't keep up with the class flow. "To qualify for the program your tests must show an average or above average intelligence• Changing schools, illness, lack of motivation and many other factors in earlier years may hold students back from reaching their full po- tential. We try to help the students overcome these obstacles and find success," Long concluded. Another room where Harlan Community High School students can receive help with their subjects is the Multi Categorical with Some Integration room. Multi Categorical with Some In- tegration includes students with learning disabilities, behavior problems, visual problems, or other problems, such as mental disabilities• Leonard Payton, along with his two assistants, Joan Chamberlain and Lora Smith help such students. The students are brought into this program the same way as with the resource room. One of the determining factors is that if on the verbal and perfor- mance of the intelligence test, the students score high, they go to the resource room, and if the student scores low they go to Payton's room. During the 1988-89 school year, there were up to twenty-one stu- dents in the program.

The seniors started testing alter- native ways to grow plants, but it is not a class project. According to Dan Leinen, FFA adviser, they are just tests. Hydrophonics is the process of growing plants in water. The plant or seed is set in a fertilizer medium, a jiffy seven pellet, about one quarter of an inch thick. The roots then grow into the water. The equipment needed for this process is an aquarium, aerator, the fertilizer pellets, and some fer- tilizer to put into the water. Ac- cording to Leinen, the sun must be kept out of the water or else algae would grow and the process would fail. Tomatoes, lettuce and onions can be grown this way, but "onions are more difficult because they're a bulb and not a root sys- tem," Leinen said. Tomatoes have grown successfully. Another experiment the students are doing is clumping sphagnum moss around a wire basket, into which seeds are put and watered. Sophomores take a look into their futures By'Amy Hendrickson ... co-editor Harlan Community High School sophomore English classes have been looking into the future and writing about what they would like to do after they graduate. The English classes, taught by Vicki Gray and Chris Kluver, wrote career papers recently. Each student researched and wrote a paper on what they think they would like to do after high school. The students were to include what kind of high school or college classes are needed to prepare for entering this career. Also they were to include what kind of part- time work would help them get I Due to circumstances beyond our control, in the May 19 issue of the Cyclone two headlines were switched around. The headlines turned around were "Teacher leaves to pursue other interests" and "Local scholarships are awarded to seniors." We're sorry if this created confusion among our readers. some experience in that fidd. Besides the research that was done in a library, the students were to interview a person already working in that particular field. No encyclopedias could be used. Thank-you cards were written in class and mailed to the people that they interviewed. Career papers by the sophomore English class have not been writ- ten in the past few years, but the teachers decided to resume the as- signment. According to Kluver the best of the career papers are to be bound in a book and put in the guidance office. The book will then be available for any student to look at to obtain background in- formation about a particular career.
