On Thursday and Friday, the seniors of Centre High School gave presentations on their English class senior projects.
Earlier in the year, students chose a subject that they were interested in, researched a question about the topic, and designed a related product. Some seniors learned about their future careers and others explored various topics of personal interest.
“I have found that what students get out of the project is proportional to what they put into the project,” teacher Jennifer Montgomery said. “While all students benefit from demonstrating and practicing their communication skills, some students really thrive with the freedom they are given.”
The students faced conflicts and endured many challenges while building their skills.
Senior Shane Methvin observed, “I learned more about working with young horses. I will use these skills as I continue to train horses on my family’s ranch.”
“The speeches that seniors give about their projects build their self-confidence, which is very gratifying to see,” Montgomery said.
The senior projects will be on display in the Centre High School library at 6:30 p.m. May 15, during the CHS activity awards banquet.
