VCHS BPA Places in National Competition

BPA National CompetitionApril 30th through May 5, Mrs. Harper, along with 6 Vinton County High School students attended and completed the Business Professionals of America National Leadership Conference in Anaheim, California. Every student who attended won at least one National Award.

Owen also earned his Ambassador (national level) Torch Award for an online resume that he completed. 

Torie Piatt, Chase Newsome, Bailey Long, Tyler Baer and Joshua Miracle all participated in an Escape Room challenge hosted by Capsim. The students had to work together as a team to answer business related questions to unlock secrets to advance to the next level. The team took 1st place in the Escape Room challenge. Each of these students also earned their Ambassador (national level) Torch Award.  

All students took a Microsoft Technology Associate certification exam, and I am proud to announce that Bailey Long and Owen Salyer are now Microsoft Technology Associate Security Fundamentals certified. 

It was not all work or the students. All students took a tour of San Juan Capistrano Mission, spent a day at Laguna Beach where we observed the tide pools at low tide and spoke with marine biologists about the creatures living in the tide pools. We also went to an Anaheim Angels baseball game, and spent a day at Disneyland. We also took one afternoon to enjoy the hotel pool and amenities. Overall, we had a fun, but productive and successful trip!  Click More+ for additional pictures.

The Vinton County High School Science Olympiad Team participated in the 2019 Regional Science Olympiad meet at Marietta College on March 9th. The Vikings enjoyed a science-filled day: competing in over 20 events, attending planetarium shows, and exploring campus.

In many events, team members were required to design and carry out experiments, take exams, and test their devices. The team, coached by Vinton County High School science teachers Mr. Troy Weaver and Mr. Mark Cline, saw much success as they received top placings in over 10 events. The team received first or second place in the following events: Anatomy, Boomilever, Code Busters, Designer Genes, Experimental Design, Fermi Questions, Herpetology, Protein Modeling, Thermodynamics, and Water Quality. There are 28 members of the 2019 VCHS Science Olympiad Team, 11 of which are graduating seniors. We wish our seniors the best of luck in their future endeavors and look forward to the 2020 competition year! More +

VCHS Students Test Out of College Level Spanish Courses

OU Placement TestingOn March 8, 2019, students in Spanish 3 and 4 attended Ohio University to take the Ohio University Spanish placement exam and take a college tour. Students had the opportunity to figure out their current level of Spanish and learn about what the university has to offer. We would like to congratulate all the students who tested out of levels, especially Eli Griffith for holding the highest score with a 438, meaning he will start Ohio University at 3110 Spanish, which will give him the opportunity to work on his Spanish minor. Congratulations to all and a special thanks to a General Mills donation, which funded transportation. Click More + to see additional pictures.
