Students want their Voices Heard
The Voices Choir, an honor choir comprised of Waynesville R-VI
elementary students in grades 3 through 6, will perform from 5:30
to 6 p.m. Thursday, December 3rd, in the Waynesville High School
The choir includes students from the district's five elementary
buildings. A photo from last year is at right.
"In addition to our own singing, we will have a horn player
from the 399th Army Band, a high school student playing the flute
and several of our own Voices members on various accompanying instruments,"
says Leigh Schaefferkoetter, director. "Each song will also
be introduced by the members themselves."
Students will sport custom-designed t-shirts with an original design
created by one of the students and audience members will get a close-up
view of the design on the program's cover.
This is the same evening as Christmas on the Square in Waynesville,

Waynesville AmeriCorps Members Recognized for Service to Veterans
and Military Families
A host of local education, military, and elected officials expressed
their thanks to 70 Waynesville AmeriCorps members who provide a
range of important services to veterans and military families in
the Fort Leonard Wood community.
The event, held on Tuesday, November 24, 2015 at Waynesville High
School, saluted these individuals as members of National Veteran
Corps, a national initiative to recognize veterans who serve in
AmeriCorps and Senior Corps or who provide service to veterans and
military families. The event was one of 200 ceremonies taking place
across the country in November in collaboration with the Corporation
for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that
administers AmeriCorps and Senior Corps.
Speakers included Dr. Brian Henry, Superintendent, Waynesville
R-VI School District; Colonel "Andy" M. Herbst, Fort Leonard
Wood Garrison Commander; State Representative Steve Lynch; Dr. George
A. Lauritson, Mayor of City of St. Robert; and representatives from
the offices of U.S. Senator Roy Blunt, U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill,
and U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler. The ceremony featured the presentation
of Veteran Corps pins to Waynesville AmeriCorps members recognizing
their service to the local military community, including nine veterans
who are serving their country again as AmeriCorps members.
Currently more than 70 AmeriCorps and AmeriCorps VISTA members
serve within the Waynesville R-VI School District where 75 percent
of students are military-connected and local agencies serve a predominately
veteran and military community. AmeriCorps members provide academic
tutoring to more than 3,700 K-12 students, lead clubs and activities
after school, develop initiatives to support disadvantaged individuals,
foster partnerships between community agencies, and promote economic
development and growth.
"I appreciate the hard work and dedication of the AmeriCorps
and AmeriCorps VISTA members that serve the Waynesville community,"
says U.S. Senator Roy Blunt. "One of the most daunting challenges
our service men and women face is making the leap to a post-military
civilian career. As we prepare for a large influx of veterans arriving
back home over the next few years, it is essential that we provide
them with the resources they need and give them the opportunity
to continue service to their country at home."
"It is especially fitting that during this season of Thanksgiving
that we are recognizing our AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and National
Veteran Corps members," says Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent
of the Waynesville R-VI School District. "We are so grateful
for the relationships they build with our students. In education,
we know that just one individual connecting with one student can
make all the difference in the world in the lives of our students
today and in their future. Our veterans who serve in these roles
have the added importance of being a military presence in the lives
of students whose parent may be deployed overseas. "
"Our troops, veterans, and their families make tremendous
sacrifices to protect our freedom and it is our solemn obligation
to support them when they come home," said Wendy Spencer, CEO
of the Corporation for National and Community Service. "Serving
those who served us, and engaging the talents of our veterans to
solve problems on the home front, are priorities for our agency.
I salute Waynesville AmeriCorps members for putting into action
our shared values of devotion, honor, and service to our great nation."
"In this season of traditions, one of the most meaningful
is the tradition of service," said Missouri State Representative
Steve Lynch. "No one has honored this tradition more than those
that have served our country in uniform. To no one's surprise, our
veterans continue this tradition serving as AmeriCorps members,
and pass on a tradition of service to the young people whose lives
they impact. God bless our veterans."
"As a former teacher and principal, I cannot overly express
the value you bring to our classrooms," says Dr. George Lauritson,
mayor of St. Robert. "Every day there are children who need
a little extra attention - some need academic support; some need
an adult who will listen; some need to know that someone cares;
some need food; some need academic enrichment because they are advanced
beyond their years. Whatever their needs, you find a way to meet
them and it's so valuable to them and to us as a community and nation."
The Waynesville R-VI AmeriCorps program, overseen by the Missouri
Community Service Commission, is one of 80 AmeriCorps and Senior
Corps programs in Missouri. Altogether, these programs engage more
than 6,100 Missourians in results-driven service at 860 locations
throughout the state. These citizens tutor and mentor children,
support veterans and military families, restore the environment,
respond to disasters, increase economic opportunity, and recruit
and manage volunteers.
Last year, AmeriCorps members and Senior Corps volunteers served
more than 780,000 veterans and military members in VA clinics and
hospitals, veteran service organizations, and at nonprofits and
public agencies. In addition, more than 23,000 veterans served in
AmeriCorps and Senior Corps, applying leadership abilities and skills
acquired during their military service to tackle problems on the
Area School Leaders Strategize Ways to Serve Military Students
Superintendents and leaders from school districts near Fort Leonard
Wood gathered on Nov. 9 at the Waynesville R-VI School District
to discuss ways to better serve military students and their families.
Leonard Wood Institute experts Joe Driskill, executive director,
and Dorsey Newcomb, technical program officer, provided insight
into both the needs of military families and resources available.
They also stressed the significant role education will play in any
future Congressional Base Realignment and Closure Commissions (BRAC).
Cory Ace, assistant principal at Waynesville High School, also
shared information about the school's National Math and Science
Initiative. Through the initiative, each student received a check
for $100 for achieving a score of 3 or higher on the following AP
exams: Language Arts, Literature, Environmental Science, Chemistry,
AB Calculus, BC Calculus, Statistics and Computer Science. The funds
were made available through a college and career readiness program
from the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI), thanks to
a grant from the Department of Defense Educational Authority (DoDEA).
Waynesville, the first in the State of Missouri to implement this
program, shared the information to help other districts adopt the
program that encourages students to take college-level courses while
in high school.
