What's Next for Business Students?
Radio * Embroidery * Print Screen/T-Shirt * Button Making
Good Day Everyone, This is WMCZ-LP 94.5 Coming From Camilla, GA
The Business Department at Mitchell County High School has added a new dimension to their curriculum. In the Fall, the students will start operating their own radio station. CNS Education Coordinator Beau Sherman is assisting with the programming and the engineering, along with Mr. Jerry White. We hope to be up and running in the fall.
Ms. Jennifer Tucker explains to Sean Clark and Victor Johnson the finer points of the embroidery machine and they learn that there is more than just threading the needles. Students also have to learn new software programs and then how to program the embroidery machine. Designs are created on the computer, digitized, and then sewn onto whatever the customer wants embroidered. Students also have to perform daily/weekly/monthly maintenance on the machine.
The addition of screen printing equipment is helping our business students acquire new and exciting skills. Juniors and Seniors are finding out the many steps to creating their own designs on screen printed shirts. From the process of putting light-sensitive emulsion on cleaned screens, exposing and washing out the designs on the cured screens, to actually putting ink on many t-shirts, these students are having a great time as they work. While the learning curve might be a little slow going, these students are catching on very quickly. They are also realizing that a little ink can go a looong way...as in all over hands, clothes, and whatever they touch.
Blood Drive Held at MCHS
On August 29, 2014, the students in Ms. S. Anglin’s Healthcare Science classes held a Blood Drive. In recognition of their giving blood, the students received a T-shirt. The Healthcare students and Ms. Anglin would like to thank everyone who helped with the Blood Drive and to the students, special thanks to you.

SAT/PSAT TEST PREPARATION LOGIN Local FFA Officers Attend Training Conference
The officers of the Mitchell County FFA Chapter were part of the 250 chapter officers representing thirty-seven FFA chapters from across Georgia that attended one of two sessions of the 2014 Chapter Officer Leadership Training Conference (COLT). The two sessions of COLT were held at the Georgia FFA-FCCLA Center near Covington, Blue COLT on July 14-16 and Gold COLT on July 16-18. This year’s COLT theme was “Leading down the Blue & Gold Road.” Chapter officers were challenged to create a set of standards for their team and write down goals for the year. Participants attended workshops that focused on community service, social media, strengths and weaknesses, teamwork, and personal productivity. The students also began planning their chapter’s Program of Activities for the coming year and learned strategies for time management, creativity and communication. Officers were encouraged to make an impact in their school and community and gained ideas for member recruitment, fundraising, and promoting the FFA.
“COLT Conference is an excellent way for chapter officers to kick-off their year of service,” says State FFA President, Callie Warren. “It’s amazing to watch them grow and form friendships that will last a lifetime. We challenge these officers to work together and empower the other members of their chapter.” The officers from the Mitchell County FFA chapter who attended COLT were: Darrius Hicks, Allen Brown, Josey Maynard, Quentez Harris, Jonte’ Harris and David Brown. The Georgia FFA Association is the third largest state association in the nation with more than 37,000 members. The National FFA Organization, formerly known as the Future Farmers of America, changed its name in 1988 to reflect the growth and diversity of agriculture. The mission of the FFA organization is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
