Congratulations to William E. Hay Composite High School student Carlie Gendre, who won a gold medal on the past weekend at the wrestling nationals.

Gendre also earned a berth on the national Cadet Pan-Am championship team, which competes at Columbia this August.

Check out next week’s Independent for a feature on Gendre.

The past couple of weeks have been quite busy for staff and students at William E. Hay.

In late March and early April, the students and teachers had their spring break and Easter holidays. They all returned back to school and regular classes last Tuesday.

The high school and Stettler Middle School band classes are getting prepared for their upcoming festival on Monday at the Stettler Performing Arts Centre.

Students from grades 7 to 12 will begin their performances during the morning. Those performances will also be adjudicated. The band students are also starting to get ready for their trip to Anaheim, Calif.

That trip is planned for the period of May 8 to May 13. The students will have the opportunity to play in front of the Castle at Disneyland.

In sports news, the archery students were on target at the provincials. Shannon Hammond placed fourth among female shooters at the high school level. She also ended up placing fifth overall in the province. Well done, Shannon!

Ryan Ponich, also from the high school, ended up placing sixth in his category. Congratulations to him, as well.

This spring, an outdoor education trip is planned. This will take place just outside Nordegg. Any interested students should contact Mr. Siemens as soon as possible.

The senior School Reach team qualified for the senior provincial tournament, which is set for April 13 at St. Albert. Congratulations!

Mr. Brager’s art students have entered the Stettler mural contest. Log on to the Town of Stettler website to vote for your favourite artist’s murals.

The top three finishers will have their art turned into murals at the cemetery, the dog park and West Stettler Park.

Check in soon for coming segments on how the high school students are doing at William E. Hay.
