Sixth Grade Center Student meet in Teams

Sixth Grade Center students meet in more than 20 L.E.A.D. teams and enjoy lunch once a week with the staff members who serve as the team's coaches. Leading our Education And Determining our future is a student-led leadership program at the Waynesville Sixth Grade Center based on The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey and the 21st Century Skills (communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking). Every student is involved and chooses his/her committee through a student choice selection sheet. The L.E.A.D. teams are facilitated by teachers and/or staff members. The groups meet each Wednesday for a 70-minute working lunch.

Practice pays off for WCC grad

Practice pays off, says Kylon Bales, a Newburg graduate who attended the Waynesville Career Center the past two school years.

As a student in Alex Neuman's welding program, Bales repeatedly heard that he needed to "practice, practice, practice." Bales returned recently to the WCC to share how his education and practice have been paying big dividends.

After graduating, Bales began working for HMT Tank, whose headquarters are located in Baywood, Texas. In July, he received his first assignment: as a welder on fuel storage tanks in Fargo, N.D. Bales enjoys his job - so much so that he refers to it as his dream job - and humbly admits to earning a substantial salary.
His career advice to students is to "do what you are interested in and like what you do. Don't do something because someone else wants you to."

While at the WCC, Bales placed third in state at the Skills USA contest in the welding sculpture category. At his home school in Newburg, he placed second place in pole vaulting in the State of Missouri track Finals, as well as played baseball and basketball.
In the future, Bales hopes to become a welding inspector for which he will need more experience in his field and to pass a test. He's not worried. After all, experience is just another word for practice, and that's a word he knows quite well.

Angie & Nathan Ogle and family of Richland were among the 110 families honored during the Missouri State Fair's Farm Family Day on August 11, 2014.

The Ogle's were selected as the Pulaski County Missouri State Fair Farm Family by the Pulaski County Extension Council and local Farm Bureau. The family includes Aaron & Ashlyn Ogle
Each year, the fair sets aside a day to recognize farm families from across the state who are active in their community, involved in agriculture, and participate in local outreach and extension programs such as 4-H and FFA.

The Ogle's operate a 160-acre cattle operation. The Ogle children are Richland 4-H members. Angie is the 4-H club leader. Their son Aaron is very active in 4-H showing livestock and in shooting sports.

The annual event was sponsored by the Missouri Department of Agriculture, the Missouri Farm Bureau, the Missouri State Fair, the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources, and University of Missouri Extension.

For 100 years, MU Extension has engaged Missourians in relevant programs based on University of Missouri research.
