The Troy High School Sophomore class helped decorate the courthouse gazebo on November 15th. Students worked in teams to hang wreaths, drape garland, assemble the Christmas tree, and suspend lights. They learned the value of hard work (even in the cold) and collaboration. This was part of Troy’s Civic Engagement Initiative, a program that promotes student involvement in the community.

Troy High School Juniors Joey Parks and Holly Williams traveled to St. Joseph, Missouri for round two of the e2 Fellowship Conference. They were part of a team of students that presented changes they would like to see in our region’s education to the Heartland Board, a quartet of former educators and current entrepreneurs. Changes the presentation included were localizing education and changing the culture of homes around the region to help the schools thrive.
