The Scottsburg Kiwanis Club held their annual meeting at the Hickory Creek Nursing Home ( a Scottsburg Kiwanis Club Corporte Member). Hickory Creek has hosted the annual meeting for over ten years now. Treyton Caudell, President of the Scottsburg Middle School Builders Club attended to represent the Builders Club at this Kiwanis Family event. However, Treyton was recognized along with all the Builders Club members for earning their second consecutive Distinguished Club award from Kiwanis International. Pictured with Treyton are from left to right Al Riggle, Kiwanis Advisor to the Builders Club, Treyton and David Wilson, President of the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club. An achievement report is submitted at the end of each school year identifying projects the club planned and conducted, membership growth, meeting attendance, fundraisers, officer training, and others. The achievement report is used to determine how many points each club earns. For the second consecutive year, the Builders Club earned enough points to be recognized as a Distinguished Club. Only three schools in the Indiana District earned this recognition. Congratulations to the members of the Builders Club and their advisor, Lisa Sutton.

Scott County Partnership seeks Volunteers for Scottsburg Middle School Reality Store
The Scott County Partnership is seeking volunteers for the Reality Store program for Scottsburg Middle School, which is on May 13th 2016 from 8:00 am- 3:00pm Volunteers will host booths for teens to visit as a part of learning what it means to balance a budget as adults. Interested persons should contact Ace Woodson at 812-722-7708 or email him at email@example.com.
At The Reality Store, students will be able to: envision the lifestyle they’d like to have when they’re in their mid-20’s, select the occupation they’d like to have as an adult, receive a checking account deposit equal to one month’s salary from their desired job, spend their salary in The Reality Store, first on necessities and then on “extras”, handle some of life’s unexpected events, learn whether their selected occupation will provide the financial resources needed to provide the lifestyle they want.
“The Reality Store is a great program.” says Ace Woodson, Special Events Coordinator for the SCP “Students can get a realistic view of what their parents/guardians go through trying to balance their budgets. At the same time they can envision what it will be like for them to make ends meet on the career path they are considering. It’s a safe environment to give their prospective career a run through.”
Since the first The Reality Store® in 1991, thousands of teens across Indiana have participated. These “Reality Stores” have been sponsored by local INFBPW organizations in cooperation with area business people and school systems. Evaluations from the teens as well as parents, teachers, and business volunteers have been extremely positive.
Again, the Scott County Partnership is seeking volunteers for the Reality Store programs for Scottsburg Middle School, which is on May 13th 2016 from 8:00 am-3:00pm. Volunteers will host booths for teens to visit as a part of learning what it means to balance a budget as adults. Interested persons should contact Ace Woodson at 812-722-7708 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
