Student Council Beautification Project Fundraiser - January 2023

The Grand Island Alumni Association made a $1,000 donation on Dec. 22 for the ongoing beautification project at the Grand Island High School main entrance.

    A fundraising drive to pay for a beautification project at Grand Island High School’s main entrance has surpassed its $10,700 goal. Brodie Kaiser, co-advisor of Grand Island High School Student Council with MaryLis Rustowicz, said, "Our goal is to create a new entryway to our high school that represents the enthusiasm and school spirit that our students share at Grand Island High School. This will also be a display of the Viking pride shared throughout our entire Grand Island community, which will last for many years to come."
    Fundraising began in November. Kaiser believes the project "will not only embrace the pride of Grand Island, but it will also further enhance our positive school culture." In addition to running fundraisers, Student Council accepted donations from Grand Island High School graduates. On Dec. 22, alumni visited the school (on the last day of school before the blizzard and winter recess) to make check presentations. Student Council received $1,000 from the Grand Island Alumni Association, $5,000 from the Class of 2022, and $1,497 from the Class of 2021, putting the fund drive over the top in its $10,000+ goal.

   The Grand Island Academy of Finance traveled to Orlando, Florida this past week to train at the Disney Imagination Campus at Walt Disney World. Fifty-three students were in attendance at this immersive training into the management and leadership style of the Disney company. Students were treated to a tour of the backstage of the park and how integral everyone's job is to the success of the Disney experience. In addition, students enjoyed fireworks and special events provided by Disney. Amy Boutet, the GIHS AOF Coordinator, was excited to bring students to "the happiest place on earth!" Thanks to the chaperones Cheryl Chamberlain, Christopher Simpson, Alanna Burt, and Mark Gorton for assisting with all of the students. The Academy of Finance introduces a student to the broad career opportunities available in the ever-changing financial services industry through involvement in a hands-on business curriculum. Students learn workplace skills and develop self-confidence as they participate in a rigorous and relevant business curriculum.
