Students attend Builders Club State Conference

Submitted by Doug Clark

The Sabetha Middle School Builders Club traveled to the annual Builders Club State Conference on Saturday, Oct. 20, at Riley County Middle School. They were accompanied by Kiwanis Club members Doug Clark and Wendy Menold.

There, they met Builders from all over the state. For activities, the Builders were divided into teams that included kids from other schools so they could make new friends.

The kids were able to meet Miss Kansas — Hannah Klassen of Arkansas City, who attends Tabor College. She gave a great talk on leadership and community service. She answered a lot of questions from the kids.

SMS students who attended included the conference: sixth grade, Landon Meyer, Isaac Hartter, Claudia Grimm, Hunter Larson, Kylah Edelman, Halley Mitchell, Katherine McAuliffe, Gabby Konig and Bayleigh Stahl; seventh grade, Joshua Grimm, Marcus Bauman, Jacob Grimm, Gwen Konig, D’Yani Crosby, Camryn Duryea, Emerson Montgomery, Ellie Wessel, Gabby Konig and Abbey Gugelman; and eighth grade, Jesse McGinnis.


In the writing contest, second place was taken by D’Yani Crosby; and all three places in the speech contest were won by Sabetha students Joshua Grimm, Ellie Wessel and Jesse McGinnis.
