UC DECA Competes in International Competition

DECA-800x450
Congratulations to the UCJSHS DECA students! Emalee Bocanegra, Reagan Hoggatt, Sophia Spence, and Sydney Ralston qualified for the International DECA Competition in Orlando, Florida. The students, and DECA adviser, Ms. Becky Kuehl, arrived on Friday, April 26th and came home on Wednesday, May 1st.

The young ladies attended the School-Based Enterprise Academy and presented while we were there. The young ladies were recognized with an Award of Excellence. They did not make the finals but both groups scored above an 80% on their presentation. This is the first time that both groups have been recognized in the same year.

While in Orlando, we visited Disney Springs, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, Cocoa Beach, and Walt Disney World.

Ms. Becky Kuehl wants to thank all of you for your continued support of Union City DECA. Our small school makes a name for itself in lots of ways. Ms. Kuehl is extremely proud to be part of that.

50 Jr. High Students Visit Washington D.C.

DC-trip
Last week, 50 UC Jr. High students, along with five teachers and administrators, visited Washington D.C. The students visited many sites. During the trip, they had the honor of having four of our own students (Jude Connor, Wade Botkin, Corbin Richards, Connor Walser) lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. These young men were selected by a committee after they wrote an essay explaining the meaning behind the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

This was arranged by Bobby Durbin and we are so grateful for that! It was a great experience for the students and a once in a lifetime opportunity for them.

Please take a couple of minutes to watch the video below.

Three Jr. High Students Acting it Up with Jay County Civic Theatre

Students Living the Dream
UC Students Living the Dream! Three Jr. High Students Acting it Up with Jay County Civic Theatre
By Brad Hoggatt

In June 2019, Jay County Civic Theatre will be presenting the Broadway smash hit “Newsies”, based on the 1992 musical Newsies, which in turn was inspired by the real-life Newsboys Strike of 1899 in New York City. The show has music by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast), lyrics by Jack Feldman, and a book by Harvey Fierstein based on film's screenplay by Bob Tzudiker and Noni White. The musical premiered at the Paper Mill Playhouse in 2011 and made its Broadway debut in 2012, where it played for more than 1,000 performances before touring. In 2012, “Newsies” was nominated for 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.

Three local youth, eighth graders Kalam and Sylaris Denney, along with seventh grader Sullivan Thomas, recently auditioned for this upcoming production. Over 100 people auditioned for roles in this show, including people from Fort Wayne, Celina, and even some college students from Ball State University. Excitedly, all three earned parts in this highly-competitive market. Those auditioning were required to read lines, sing, and learn a dance routine. Shannie Denney, mother of Kalam and Sylaris, is a very proud parent. “The kids didn’t earn a major role, but knowing that they were asked to participate considering how many people tried out is pretty awesome and amazing!”

As dreams go, one cannot discount coming from a small town. Great things can happen to anyone at anytime, from any place. The community is encouraged to support this group of young thespians by attending this fantastic show. For ticket information, please be in contact with the Jay County Civic Theatre in Portland, Indiana.

UC FFA Chapter's Recent Exciting Accomplishments

FA1-800x450
FFA has been busy this past month with several exciting accomplishments. 

1) UC FFA CDE (Judging) teams were honored at the 97th Annual Randolph County Farmers' Achievement Banquet. Over the past year, Union City had 5 of the 9 County Champion teams (Dairy, Soils, Meats, Dairy Foods, and Livestock Skillathon), and 6 students were honored as Individual County Champions.

2) UC FFA teams placed 4th and 7th out of 20 teams in the highly competitive District IX Small Engines CDE. Ian Glunt and Braydon Hoggatt qualified for the State Contest next month, and Rylan Glunt and Alec Spence did a great job as 7th-Graders competing against high school teams.

3) UC FFA had 3 individuals place first with their District Proficiency Application. This is a 20-page application highlighting the students' Supervised Agriculture Experience Program. Students keep records of their Agriculture Placement or Entrepreneurship. Katie Reichard placed first in Poultry Production Entrepreneurship, Derick Williams in Turfgrass Management Placement, and Ian Glunt in Diversified Crop Placement. They are now competing against the other 11 District winners.

4) UC FFA President Derick Williams is slated to serve as District IX FFA President for the 2019-2020 school year. This is a tremendous honor, and from what I have heard, the last UC Student to lead the District was in the 1980s.
