For Use Through March 11, 2017

IT CAN BE SAID THAT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT COMPONENTS TO A SPORT IS THE OFFICIALS. WITHOUT THESE HARD WORKING PEOPLE, IT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE TO HAVE THE SMOOTH RUNNING GAMES THAT ARE SEEN IN EVERY SPORT. OFFICIALS DEDICATE COUNTLESS HOURS TO THE SUCCESS OF SPORTS AND OFTEN ARE NOT GIVEN THE RECOGNITION THAT THEY DESERVE. ARIANA COKER, A SENIOR AT SHAWNEE MISSION WEST HIGH SCHOOL IN OVERLAND PARK, KS, ASKS THAT YOU MAKE SURE TO NEVER FAIL TO SHOW APPRECIATION TOWARDS OFFICIALS.

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES HAVE PLAYED A HUGE ROLE IN THE LIFE OF TEL WITTMER, A SENIOR AT HOLTON HIGH SCHOOL. ONE KEY CONCEPT LEARNED IS THAT COMMUNICATION IS KEY IN ORDER TO GET SOMETHING DONE IN A GROUP. WITH THE ABILITY TO SUCCESSFULLY COMMUNICATE DURING A COMPETITION, THE GOALS OF A TEAM ARE EASILY WITHIN REACH. THE TEAMWORK SKILLS STUDENTS LEARN IN HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES WILL PAY DIVIDENDS IN THEIR FUTURE CAREERS.

A MESSAGE FROM THE KANSAS STATE HIGH SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION AND THE STUDENT ADVISORY TEAM.

IT MIGHT NOT BE THE CALL YOU WANT, OR IT MIGHT NOT EVEN BE THE RIGHT CALL ALL THE TIME, BUT THEY ARE TRYING THEIR BEST TO KEEP THE GAME FAIR. TAYLOR RIOS, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM TURNER HIGH SCHOOL IN KANSAS CITY, KS, ASKS PARENTS, PLAYERS AND COACHES TO THANK AN OFFICIAL WHEN YOU SEE THEM AND LET THEM KNOW YOU APPRECIATE WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO DO.

OFFICIALS ARE VERY IMPORTANT PART OF HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETICS SAYS TAYLOR WILLIAMS, A RECENT GRADUATE FROM PAOLA HIGH SCHOOL.

TEAMWORK IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF BECOMING A WINNING TEAM NOTES CALEB FRYE, A SENIOR AT MOUNDRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL. WHEN A TEAM IS UNIFIED AND WORKING TOWARDS A COMMON GOAL, IT BECOMES STRONGER AND MORE SUCCESSFUL. GOOD TEAMS BECOME GREAT TEAMS WHEN THE PARTICIPANTS COMBINE THEIR EFFORTS AND TALENTS TOGETHER TO STRENGTHEN AND MOTIVATE EACH OTHER. THE PHRASE “BAND OF BROTHERS” IS OFTEN USED ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD BECAUSE A TEAM SHOULD FEEL LIKE A FAMILY, A GROUP OF PARTICIPANTS THAT ARE AT THEIR BEST WHEN UNITED TOGETHER.

MANY HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETES RECEIVE SCHOLARSHIPS TO PURSUE THEIR PASSIONS IN SPORTS SAYS ZACH SHIMA, A SENIOR AT TOPEKA WEST HIGH SCHOOL. THESE SPECIAL ATHLETES ARE ALSO NORMALLY THE LEADERS OF THEIR TEAM. THIS LEADERSHIP OFTEN CARRIES OVER TO THEIR ACADEMICS.
