WSL meetings promote goodwill among area schools

For the last three years student leadership has participated in West Sierra League (WSL) leadership meetings. In these meetings, student leaders from throughout the Valley gather to share ideas on how to best serve their respective schools.

“WSL is comprised of both public and private schools,” Josh Tosland, leadership adviser, said. “By working together we are able to relate to and learn from non-Christians.”

WSL gives students an opportunity to meet other student leaders and exchange ideas. The meetings also promote goodwill between schools whose focus is normally competition on the playing fields. By representing this campus, students are encouraged to interact with others who are not in their typical Christian circles.

“In WSL we split into groups with one student from each school,” Andrew Kaiser, ’05, said. “Most of the other representatives show a willingness to listen and great interest in our formal, Night of the Stars.”

Some students, however, find the meetings redundant.

“I went to the last WSL meeting and nothing really happened,” Micah Walker, ’05, said. “Representatives from other schools only talked about their dances and did not really care about what I had to say.”

What interests most students are the things leadership learns at these meetings, which will benefit this campus.

“Though somewhat devious, we all enjoyed an activity called Orange Crush,” Jennifer Ficklin, ’04, said. “People pay money to send an anonymous Orange Crush drink to the object of their affection. If their crush wants to know who they are, they pay leadership an additional fee to find out.”

After being canceled for 10 years WSL meetings are re-establishing themselves as a tradition among student leadership teams.

“The meetings help our leadership class on campus get ideas from other schools,” Carson Belmont, ’05, said. “For example, we got different ideas for Homecoming like new ways to get students excited about the event.”

The next WSL meeting will be held on Nov. 24 at Fowler High School and discussions will surround a league canned food drive and winter formals.
