Students are thrilled to see the summer weather finally here.

The Wildcat badminton season is coming to an end and the tennis and track and field athletes are readying for a great season.

The fine arts board would like to congratulate everyone who participated in the One Act Play Festival. William E. Hay students, once again, demonstrated outstanding skills with the six plays that were entered in the festival.

The play “Country Gothic,” co-directed by Tara Kruk and Shayla Neitz, received an award for best technical production, while “Tick Talk,” directed by Courtney Wingie, received best-ensemble honours.

Congratulations to Andrew Somerville, Meghan LaRose, Shea Heatherington, Austin Vegter, Tara Kruk and Shayla Neitz for receiving excellence in acting awards at the festival.

Thanks to the cosmetology students and Ms. Kneeland for their efforts in organizing hair and make-up.

It’s that time of year again — the student union elections are underway. Those elections will take place on Thursday, May 23, during Flex time.

Twenty-four of the SADD students and their friends enjoyed a night of games and movies at their first wake-a-thon.

The students raised money for their organization by collecting pledges for every hour they stayed awake. The SADD group extends thanks to the businesses that sponsored them and the support they received through monetary donations.

Congratulations to Shea Dahl and Nathan Spencer for winning the Town of Stettler mural contest. Shea’s design will be displayed at the dog park and Nathan’s will be going to West Stettler Park.

Each winner receives $150 Stettler Dollars prize money. Well done!

The student union will host a Haitian Education barbecue fundraiser Thursday during lunch. For $5, you can buy a hamburger, pop and chips. Please help them support that worthy cause.

That’s it for this week. Check the Independent next week for more news from William E. Hay Composite High School.
