Four Diamond Ranch Academy Students Attend 4-H Conference

Four of Diamond Ranch Academy's students were invited to attend the 4/H Southwest Region Ambassadors’ leadership training activities. They participated and represented Diamond Ranch Academy very well. Each reported back that it was a great learning and growing experiance. A summary of their activities and agenda follows:

Thursday April 9th. 2-5 pm participate in group games at the Washington City Community Center, including: basketball, racquetball, climbing wall, and racing to dress in military camouflage clothing and run an obstacle course. After each activity, the groups sat in circles and talked about what they learned from the event.

From 5:30 to 6:30 the girls stuffed cloth animals to send to children in Africa.
6:30 dinner was served.
7:00 to 8:30 Youth ambassadors talked about rules of conduct and performed skits. The guest speaker was Max Rose the Superintendent of the Washington County School District and our students loved his talk. Our girls returned home to Diamond Ranch Academy at 9 pm.

Friday April 10th, our girls went to the following workshops: Purgatory Correctional Jail, Human Fooseball, and more service projects. After lunch, they went to more workshops including: Money and you, Obstacle Course and Ice cream. One of our girls was pleased with how easily she made some new friends just by being herself and having fun. Another student talked most about some of the people she met in the jail and has placed a suggestion for all the students at DRA to go on the jail tour. Overall, a great time was had by students and staff.

Here are some pictures of our time at the Convention:
