Extra- Curricular.

Saturday, October 15 2011: Homecoming Parade for Inkster. National Honor Society (1 student, both advisors) and Students Leading Students (2 students and myself, advisor) walked holding our banners in the parade. My red Pontiac G6 convertible was the transport for Inkster High School's Homecoming Duke and Duchess (Harry A. and Tashauna S.).

Saturday, October 29, 2011: Students Leading Students- Inkster High School. I was the sole advisor with 9 of our 22 student members at the Annual Conference, held this year at the Birmingham Conference Center. Ford sponsored a test- driving event in the morning; students had the opportunity to drive while an instructor sat in the passenger seat. Fast turns and texting while driving (vs focused driving) were featured. After a box lunch, students participated in three afternoon leadership seminars. Our followup day of training will be held at Inkster High School on December 9. The Students Leading Students club will focus on positive school culture and community action. We will collaborate with the Inkster High School National Honor Society on projects including the Annual Food Drive this fall.

Thursday, November 3, 2011: National Honor Society Induction. Thirty new members, grades 10 - 12, joined our 1 remaining member from last school year. Our induction ceremony was held on the stage in the IHS auditorium, at 6pm. Speakers were Principal R. Harris, Mrs. N. Gall (requirements of membership), Ms. T. Dudley (responsibilities and expectations), and Talayah T. (poem, Road Less Traveled). After receiving pins (yellow and light blue corsages) and certificates on the stage, inductees recited the pledge and held candles which were lighted before the recession to the media center for our reception. Punch, tiramisu, double chocolate cake, and carrot cake were served. Group photos were taken. Inductees, family and friends, and advisors / staff and administration enjoyed the opportunity to meet and greet each other- and to share our appreciation for these student role models in our community.
