Soldier Mt. and Mt. View students attend Shasta College Preview Day

On October 5, seventeen Soldier Mt. High School and Mt. View High School students attended the Shasta College Preview Day. They were accompanied by their teachers Jeff Earnest and Becky Mock and Administrative Secretary Shaun Davis.

Shasta College Preview Day provides high school students who may be interested in attending Shasta Community College with information about academic programs, application, enrollment, tuition costs, and financial assistance. Altogether 450 students attended this year’s event at the college theatre.

The FRJUSD students sat in the front row. Eva Jimenez, Associate Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development acted as presenter for the program. She encouraged audience participation and 3 FRJUSD students willingly participated.

Many of the students had never been to Shasta College. Some had not thought about the possibility of attending college. Students learned about the “Shasta College Promise” program which provides free tuition for the first year for first-time, full-time students. They also learned about a Shasta Promise Program that assists students who previously may not have been able to attend school for financial reasons.

This year the Lodge is giving out backpacks filled with school supplies to 49 students at Burney Elementary, 33 students in Fall River, 8 students in Big Valley and 12 students in Montgomery Creek.

On Tuesday, September 25, Mason Jim Crockett delivered the packs to second graders at Burney Elementary School.

Crockett asked the students if they knew what country they live in.

“The United States of America!” The children shouted in reply.

When he asked if they knew who the first president was, they raised their hands and answered, “George Washington.”

Crockett told them that George Washington was a brother Mason. He also told them that another Founding Father, Benjamin Franklin, who aided in the discovery of electricity was a Mason.

Mr. Von Schalscha told the students that they would learn more about Ben Franklin later in the year.

Crockett explained that the Masons had long been supporters of public education in California and that is why they give out the backpacks each year.

A lot of students raised their hands to ask questions. Some wanted to know what was in the backpacks. Each pack contained a pencil, a notebook, an eraser, crayons, and a ruler.
