Student leadership serve teachers breakfast

With Christmas wrappings covering the tables for a festive meal, student leadership class arrived at 6 a.m. to prepare, cook and serve the teachers breakfast on Dec. 11 in the J.J. Hospitality Room before classes.

“It was extremely difficult to wake up that early,” Chelsea Myers, ’02, said, “but it was a good reminder of what leadership is all about.”

The meal of homemade french toast, scrambled eggs, shoestring potatoes, bacon and fruit cups were ready for the teachers by 7 a.m. Once a year the class treats the teachers the week before Christmas break to a meal that even the pickiest eaters could appreciate.

“The bacon was excellent!” Scott Callisch, athletic director, said. “Kudos to the boys who cooked the bacon. That’s hard meticulous work.”

All the teachers from grades 1-12 were invited to the breakfast which has become an annual event. Many teachers arrived early for best selection.

“This is one of the breakfast’s that I look forward to all year,” Greg Page, Bible and world history teacher, said. “I was one of the first in line and had a wide range of foods to chose from. I appreciate the work that the leadership students put into it; it was an awesome breakfast.”

Student leadership adviser Christopher Schultz has organized the event for five years and hosts the event to serve the teachers who teach faithfully every day.

“The ultimate act of leadership is service,” Schultz said. “Our students understand this and have made it their goal to serve others and this is a wonderful way to demonstrate our appreciation.”

Not only did the seniors show up on time to serve, but a number of freshmen were preparing food early.

“The waffles were extraordinary,” Alec Kneefel, ’05, said. “The waffel makers did an awesome job. Josiah (Thiesen, ’02) and Casey (Belmont, ’02) turned out some amazing homemade stuff. I am glad I came out to serve; it is the least I can do for the teachers.”

Despite the mess the students made during cooking and serving, the head of The Peoples Church custodian staff, Michael Weisser, was impressed with the student leaders.

“I want to commend the students on the wonderful job they did in cleaning up the cooking and seating area after the breakfast,” Weisser said. “It was one of the finest job of cleaning up an event that I have ever seen here at Peoples. Often an event is marred by the mess people make but these students did a great job.”
